Here are the facts; using qualified commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) tools in the development of safety and mission-critical systems saves time, money and improves time to market.
The use of software tools for requirements management is encouraged by regulatory authorities—and the qualification of the requirements management tools allows for the tool features and functions, and their corresponding outputs, to be trusted as true and correct.
The TQKs for IBM CLM SUite include a collection of artifacts used to provide evidence of ‘trustworthiness’ enabling the qualified use of DNG, RTC and RQM.
