The PLE scenario is an variant of the classic Automated Meter Reader sample used in the Rational Systems Engineering products. For PLE the scenario has been expanded to describe how JK Meters Corp is developing a product line of automated meter reader products with manual, mobile and grid variants across markets in US, EU and UK. This article tells the story of JK Meters and how the organization is developing its product variants.
The PLE personas are based on the shared set of Rational and Systems and Software Engineering personas. For PLE design, two key personas were selected. This article outlines the Configuration Manager and System Engineer personas and their importance in the PLE scenario.
For IBM Interconnect 2013 we created 'Trading Cards' for the Systems and Software Engineering personas. This is a fun giveaway to conference attendees and an attraction to the Design Studio sessions run at the conference. Check out the cards in this article.
UX Design for the Global Configuration Application
The PLE design is all about working with Global and Local Configurations. This article discusses the user experience design in the Global Configuration tool and the use of the configuration switcher in the practitioner tools.

Designing the Configuration Management User Experience in CLM 6.0
We are nearing the release of Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) 6.0 that will include Configuration Management (CfgM) across lifecycle projects, which we developed using IBM Design principles. Check out my blog on Jazz.net on how we used design thinking and release hills to expresses user value, objectives and the scope for the CLM 6.0 the release.
Designing User Experience Concepts in Multi-Stream Configuration Management
IBM Interconnect 2015
This workshop session use design thinking practices for generating and
reviewing UX concepts for Multi-Stream Configuration Management in the IBM Rational CLM tools. Attendees will participating in reviewing the Configuration Management content model and identify user actions and outcome to the model. User actions will be allocated to the user interfaces merged into a Task Board for Multi-Stream Configuration Management documenting a desired usage model.
Designing a Configuration Aware Reporting Solution for Product Line Engineering
IBM Interconnect 2015
This workshop will use design thinking practices for exploring reporting needs for team practicing Multi-Stream Configuration Management and Product Line Engineering. Attendees will participate through ideation, clustering of ideas and prioritisation to provide recommendations on metrics, queries, reports and the lifecycle data required for such reporting.
User Experience Consistency: Where Does It Matter The Most?
Inncer Circle - IBM Interconnect 2015
The PLE solution is impacting the user experience in all participating CE tools. The PLE design is not just the look, but also the same behaviour across the solution. This session discusses the consistent items and their ranking in the product plan.
Link validity is a status on a link between artefacts to indicate whether the contents of two artefacts meet the intended meaning of their link. This session introduces the Validity concept and the user experience design.
The IBM solution for Continuous Engineering delivers rich capabilities for impact analysis. And we are seeking ways to make use of these capabilities easier by removing tool boundaries, enabling collaboration in the I/A process, simplifying building and using tabular and diagram report views, and simplifying building and using visual views. This session discusses the needs on Impact Analysis.
Global baseline and product variants management at Innovate 2013
IBM Innovate 2013
Technologies such as VVC and GC enables components reuse and development of multiple products or applications from a common architecture. We will collect and validate the customer requirements, and explore the UX design for
global baseline of lifecycle artifacts across domains and variant creation and management.
