For another year, Softacus was a Gold sponsor of SWISSED - an annual Symposium of the Swiss Systems Engineering Society, which was held on 06. September 2021 in Zurich as a hybrid event with both physical and online attendees.
We were onsite presenting the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management products - IBM DOORS Next Generation, IBM Test Management, IBM Workflow Management, and more.
It was nice talking to all participants stopping by our booth and exchanging ideas on System Engineering.
We look forward to seeing you next year again at SWISSED.
19. - 21. October
Softacus will be an exhibitor at this year's MedConf which will take place again as a hybrid event – participants can choose whether to attend the conference online or onsite in Munich from 19 – 21. October 2021.
We will be onsite, presenting IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management for Medical Devices (https://softacus.com/solutions/solutions-for-systems-and-software-development-for-medical-devices)
On 20. October at 16:30, Peter Shedel and Eran Grey (IBM Germany) will give a speech on the Digital Engineering of Medical Devices. (Put this link https://www.medconf.de/vortraege-2021/schedl-gery.html)

Model-driven development (MDD) and agile methods are often seen as being “at odds” with each other, especially in the world of safety-critical, high-reliability systems. MDD practitioners feel that agile is too unstructured to result in reliable and safe systems, while agile practitioners complain about doing work that isn’t directly writing or testing code. In actuality, they can be considered complementary approaches that bring their own strengths to bear for the development of high-quality software for embedded systems. Modeling brings strong notions of design, a single source of truth, traceability to other work products (such as requirements and standards), and automatic code generation. Agile methods bring incremental development, continuous testing, and a whole host of best practices for the development of software-related work products. This talk will address many of the most important agile/model-driven practices for the development of embedded software systems.

Thu August 26, 2021 | 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM PT
In this webinar, we will explain how product family management is carried out across the lifecycle from Systems to Software engineering. Today's complex systems are often delivered across multiple markets, budgets, and customers. This requires designing products as families, starting at the systems engineering phase and then propagated into component implementations at the software and electronic levels. This requires managing a variability concept that is integrated with the solution architecture and implementation concepts. We will explain and demonstrate how this is incorporated as part of an overall digital engineering process, across requirements, model-based analysis and design, test management, and then software implementations. We will also demonstrate how different variant configurations are maintained and synchronized with the product family assets.
Presenters: Eran Gery and Andy Lapping of IBM
