Product How-To: Taking control of requirements specification for smart energy embedded systems
4/14/2012 9:16 AM EDT
Software and systems development is facing an exponential growth in complexity while processes are becoming more iterative to reduce time-to-market and cost but, at the same time, guarantee the highest level of quality.
Visure Solutions, a Spain-based start-up dubbed “the requirements company”, claimed that it plays a central role in this context with its Requirements Engineering Lifecycle Solution, IRQA.
IRQA, Visure Solutions explained, is a flexible requirements engineering lifecycle solution capable of streamlining requirements processes, allowing more effective collaboration, increasing quality, supporting requirements capture, analysis, specification, validation and verification, management and reuse.
More specifically, Visure Solutions continued that, with IRQA, embedded systems developers can establish and enforce a requirements engineering process that everyone can follow in one single platform. They can engage all relevant stakeholders and achieve collaboration between them. Designers are also able to respond to changes, avoid pitfalls and mitigate risk every step of the way. Finally, they can improve quality through more effective change management and reuse.
Headquartered in Madrid, Spain, Visure Solutions was founded in 2007 as a spin-off from TCP, a Spanish Systems Integrator.
Visure Solutions has established itself in requirements engineering by assisting with projects in industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, renewable energies, energy, transportation and utilities as well as telecommunications.
Visure Solutions has a commercial presence, direct or via channel, in 25 countries. It has European sales operations in Spain, Germany and Sweden and is currently launching US operations.
In a discussion with Smart Energy Designline (from page 2 to 6), Visure Solutions demonstrates its commitment to address the growing complexity of embedded software development and to ease regulatory compliance. More specifically, the company explains in what respect its IRQA solution improves the quality and tracking of embedded system requirements specification and change management.
