The new IBM Redpaper is intended for systems delivery teams who require an integrated solution for systems life cycle management for systems and software engineering. It illustrates how proven methodologies and best-of-breed tools, such as Rational DOORS, Rational Rhapsody, Rational Team Concert, and Rational Quality Manager, can help you design high-quality products that meet customer requirements during the innovation process for smarter products. The paper was produced by IBM Rational Solution Architect Mats Göthe and Chief Evangelist Bruce Douglass. We provide an expert look into the processes and best practices that enable effective product development.redp4681
Systems delivery is often divided into multiple categories, for example, systems engineering, project management, software engineering, and quality management. These categories interconnect across the systems delivery life cycle, performing distinct tasks and creating distinct life cycle work products. The IBM Rational Workbench for Systems and Software Engineering software is a life cycle management solution that supports such collaborative tasks and linking of the life cycle work products. The Workbench also enacts the systems delivery workflows and provides task management capabilities to effectively run the systems delivery project.
