In this webinar you’ll see the integrated lifecycle process of the ELM suite of tools extended to source code management and build results. You’ll also see the traceability links from every modified source file to the tasks that drove the effort, the requirements that defined the need, the tests that validated the changes, and the build results that that provide a summary of changes from build to build.

This is session 5 of 7 that covers the IBM ELM tool suite.

IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) is the leading platform for today’s complex product and software development. ELM extends the functionality of standard ALM tools, providing an integrated, end-to-end solution that offers full transparency and traceability across all engineering data. From requirements through testing and deployment, ELM optimizes collaboration and communication across all stakeholders, improving decision- making, productivity and overall product quality.

INCOSE Vision 2025 “A World in Motion” identifies classic challenges that organizations face as they seek to deliver capabilities and systems in today’s world. We see accelerating growth in the complexity of the problems we address as well as the implementation technologies upon which we rely. As information transitions from team to team throughout the systems lifecycle, knowledge and investment are lost at lifecycle phase boundaries introducing inefficiencies and errors. Looking across projects, knowledge and investment are lost across the greater engineering portfolio. Put simply, what got us here won’t get us there as we deliver the vision of Industry 4.0, Society 5.0, and the next-generation systems our customers demand.

This presentation will address:

• The critical role of architecture in addressing complexity
• Developing better architectures through MBSE
• Connecting the engineering lifecycle and greater enterprise through architecture
• The benefits of Architecture-Driven Engineering.

As products become more complex and our environment becomes more dynamic, successfully delivering the right product is more challenging than ever. As we unleash the power of architecture, we better translate customer needs into product success.

The rapidly increasing pace of technology innovation continuously impacts the complexity of today’s systems such as land, marine, and air vehicles, as well as medical and other electronics equipment, and cyber-physical systems in general. Engineering teams are challenged by exponentially increasing software content, sustainability transformation, and autonomous functionality. Along with that, come increasing regulatory requirements to assure safety and cyber security.

While the engineered systems are becoming more complex, engineering practices are somewhat left behind based on “document centric” non-digitized practices, where lifecycle activities and disciplines are data silos.

In this webinar we describe how a fully digitized systems engineering process enables the primary objectives of engineering projects: Increasing speed of delivery and innovation, ensuring quality, reducing costs, and demonstrating compliance. We will illustrate how the above foundations are leveraged throughout a systems engineering process, and includes in-process quality, stakeholders visibility and viewpoints for high velocity, full change control and audit trail for effective demonstration of compliance.

We will demonstrate how IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) establishes a holistic digital engineering process, from stakeholder requirements through implementation, based on the following foundations:

  • Digital connectivity across all lifecycle artifacts to insure data consistency and traceability compliance
  • Model based system design for early functional and architectural verification
  • Agile enactment across the entire systems engineering process
  • Cross lifecycle digital viewpoints and reporting for full visibility and decision support to all stakeholders
  • Fostering reuse across projects and programs for highly effective engineering

  • Transformation of attributes
  • Transformation in GCM context; view to stream, split across components
  • Ability to migrate history and baselines

Image

 

DOORS Tables

Our application has the ability to transform DOORS Tables into DNG HTML Tables within the DNG Artifact.
Also, we support the ability to transform OLE excel tables into DNG artifact HTML tables.  

Migration of History data

Ability to save DOORS object history and import it into either an attribute or initial content of a "primary text" attribute.
Possibility to make a link back to original object in case of migration without the history (recommended option).

(Currently in development) Import from specific DOORS baseline.

High Automation Level

The tool have API in order to create automation for:

  • Artifact creation and mapping
  • Attribute creation and mapping
  • Link Type creation
  • Project area & component creation
  • GCM creation
  • Creation of views, folders, streams and baselines
  • Create User in Jazz
  • Automated assignment of Group to the User

Conversions

  • Rich text into attributes
  • DXL Layouts into string attributes
  • Ability to convert attributes into embedded artifacts (i.e. for parametrization)
  • Transformations of pictures. We support png, jpeg, jpg. Due to DNG limitations, .wmf and .svg are not supported

Links

  • Recreation of links within the project area
  • Recreation of links within the component
  • Recreation of links across project areas

  • Stream Updates

Profiles per Each project

The solution have customizable possibilities (currently via YAML file) to set up a profile for migration of each project

Migration of Views

The solution supports migration of view (beta)
Some views are non-compatible in DNG, and we tag them

Lightning Speed

We have developed a concept how to avoid thousands/millions of calls to DNG

Example 10 000 artifacts 150 seconds

Statistics

  • PA Size
  • Modules size
  • Number of attributes
  • Number of artifacts

Validator

  • checks count and data
  • count object types attribute types
  • views
  • links

Mapping

  • Mapping of custom object types to artifact types
  • Storage of mapping per each execution
  • Sandboxing  -migrate test and improve

OLE Object Handling

  • Migration of OLE from attribute into primary text (merge) or as linked artifact (link to base artifact)
  • Ability to migrate pictures as embedded or standalone artifacts. Linking of embedded pictures to its artifacts (as base artifact link)

Notifications

Error handling prior and after the migration

Test Management

(Planned) Test on each object with proof that the artifact was migrated from DOORS to DNG properly

Other Advanges

  • Keep reference to DOORs classic
  • 60 widgets available from Softacus for DNG with mainly common architecture. Widget are resolving several gaps and increase user experience in DNG
  • Support for Tags,
  • Handling of huge project data
  • Own migration server and infrastructure for Migration
  • Unicode special symbols handling
  • Nested symbols handling
  • Incompatibility checks
  • Attributes merging
  • We can recreate DXL scripts in Js Java and Python or other language if required

Technical Information

  • Concurrent loading from DOORS to DNG
  • Usage of internal DB during Migration, which allows flexible linking after the migration of the data
  • Possibility to resume of the migration process in case of a disruption

 

Flexible for any customer use case

All migrations are different.  We have built this solution, because the traditional ways of migrating were not sufficient for our and our customer needs.

This video show first release of the solution.

Development of specific APIs

The tool is able to to custom migration due to the fact that we have created our own APIs.

In order that DNG traces all the changes in artifacts, which could be seen in the "Artifacts History" page. Softacus developed an extension that allows users to filter this history directly in a module without need of opening history separately in new window or tab.


User Interface

  

 

 

As you can see on the left, UI of this extensions is containing filters. You can filter by:

  • Start Date - together with end date it specifies the date range of the changes that should be displayed
  • End Date - together with start date it specifies the date range of the changes that should be displayed
  • Users - you could choose from which user you want to show the changes
  • Changeset - indicates what type of change you want to see. Changeset filter contains the following options:
    • Delete
    • Edit
    • Create

 

 

 

  

 

Description

This extension provides DNG users with the ability to view changes made to the displayed module without the user having to leave the module they are working in and open the artifact history in a new window. The developed extension from Softacus allows users to quickly and time-savingly view the history of changes in the module in which they are currently located. The change report will be displayed directly in this extension of your mini dashboard. It contains information about the user who made the change, the exact date and time the artifact change was created, and the artifact ID. In the artifact change report, the changes are color coded just like in the DNG. In case the user does not choose any filter, this extension will show him all types of changes made by any user for 1 week (7 days), which is set as an auto filter. This extension also offers the possibility to filter changes based on your chosen criteria, which can be: the date interface, the user who made the change, or the type of change. Changes are displayed in the report in chronological order from the last change made. This extension displays changes not only in Primary text but also records the creation/change/deletion of links, comments, and other attributes.

Problem to solve

Tracking all changes in artifacts in DNG is currently time and labor-intensive. Currently, this is only possible via the "History of Artifacts" page. Softacus has developed an extension that allows users to filter this history directly in the module without opening the history separately in a new window or tab. The entire history of an open module can be viewed in a widget in your mini dashboard with a few clicks. In addition to a complete change history report, this script can be used to filter based on the date interface, the user who made the change, or the type of change.

Features

Report of changes

This extension to see and filter changes made across the module. Information about these changes will be displayed directly in the extension in your mini dashboard. In the displayed report you will find information: the user who made the change, the date and exact time the change was saved, and the ID of the changed artifact. Changes are arranged in the report in descending order based on the date (the last change in the module is displayed first). If a larger number of changes were created for the selected period, there are paginated by 20 items.

Filtering changes based on:

Start date and End date 

This data determines the change display date interface. If the user does not choose his start date and end date, the extension will display changes for the last week (7 days).

Users

You can choose which user you want to see changes from. If the user does not select any user, the report will display the changes made to the module by any user.

Type of Change

Indicates what type of change you want to see. This filter contains the following options:

All (default) as is - filter from module history

Edit = UserXY modified resource

Create = UserXY modified module structure - added

Delete = UserXY modified module structure - removed

Color resolution

In the report, all changes made in the module are colored for easy orientation. The color difference of the changes is the same as DNG - yellow background color = "create"; blue background color = "edit"; gray background color + red text color = "delete".

Show details about the type of changes

Using the drop-down menu, the user can expand each change record either individually or in the header for all. After clicking on the link, the user will be redirected to the changeset, where there is a detailed record of the specific change.

Restrictions

  • This extension works only in the module

How to use this extension

  1. Add a widget from the catalog by the name Filter History (FIH)
  2. Open Module in Doors NG Component
  3. Select the start date and end date
  4. Select the user whose changes you want to see
  5. Select types of changes
  6. Click on the "Filter History" button

Split and Join was developed by Softacus and providing you the possibilities to split or merge artifacts content. The artifact content must contain at least two paragraphs.

User interface 

spj_user_interference.png

Description

This extension splits a artifacts in DOORS NG Module into several smaller artifacts. This extension also joins several selected artifacts together.

Problem to solve

This extension is mainly used when a user needs to quickly join or split artifacts in few clicks. This is often after the import of the data from Word into the DNG Module

Join Artifacts

The join function is often needed after import of artifacts into DNG from a Word or text document. The artifacts (i.e. Information) would often be imported as several artifacts and often user would like to join several artifacts into one single artifact

Split Artifacts

When your text contains 2 or more requirements, you would like to split them in order to assign specific attributes and link to each of these requirements. This extension helps you to divide several sentences which are together in one artifact, into several single artifacts with single sentences.

Limitations

Currently, the join function works in a way where it is important to notice which artifacts you select and in which order.

User guide

Split Artifacts:

  1. Open Module
  2. Mark a single artifact, which shall be to be divided into several artifacts. This artifact should have several paragraphs
  3. Select delimiter  
    1. Paragraph - this means after every "Enter" the artifact will be split
    2. Bullet list - this means after every "Bullet point <li>" the artifact will be split
    3. Numbered List - this means after every "Numbered line <li>" the artifact will be split
  4. Click Split Button

Result: Artifact is divided into several smaller artifacts of the same type.

Join Artifacts:

  1. Open Module
  2. Mark several artifacts, which shall be to be joined into a single artifact. It is important to notice the sequence of your clicks.. The artifact will be joined in the sequence of your clicks. If you want to keep the current sequence, then click in the vertical sequence.
  3. Click Join Button

Result: Artifacts are joined into single artifact. The first clicked artifact is enhanced, and the other artifacts are deleted. Sequence is according to user clicks.

Render preview:

Display text preview, so user know how this artifact will look like after the action

Future Features

Artifacts shall be joined in the same sequence as they are in the module even if the creation modification date is not in sequence AND even if user did not click the items in the proper order

After merge the sequence of artifacts must be the same as before merge.
