Making Reuse Easier in Complex Product Development with v6.0.1

Right on schedule I am happy to mention that the v6.0.1 releases are now available for download. Others will write more about the new capabilities in each of the v6.0.1 product releases. Here I focus on teams doing baselines across linked requirements, tests and designs, parallel development, and ALM-level component-based reuse at a significant scale. These capabilities […]

Unlocking engineering insight for an IoT world

Gary Cernosek Sr. Product Manager IBM IoT Continuous Engineering I’m writing this series of posts over the next few weeks to spur dialog on the topic of how organizations practicing in an IoT world need better ways to extract and derive value from the many sources that comprise their environment of engineering information. I plan […]

How Linked Lifecycle Data can transform your Systems Engineering Environment (Part 3)

This is the final part of a 3-part series of blog posts about Linked Lifecycle Data (continued from Part 1 and Part 2). Getting more from your data Understanding data and relationships between pieces of data is critical in successfully working on – and managing – systems and software projects. During the course of systems […]

How Linked Lifecycle Data can transform your Systems Engineering Environment (Part 2)

This is part 2 of a 3-part series of blog posts about Linked Lifecycle Data (read part 1). What is Linked Lifecycle Data? Linked Lifecycle Data is simply the application of Linked Data principles to data created and maintained during the lifecycle of systems and software development projects. The traditional approach to data integration Traditionally, […]

I’m thrilled to announce the addition of the Design Management project here on We’re excited to join the community, and we look forward to engaging with you and getting your early feedback! What is design management? For the last several years, we’ve talked with customers about the notion of “collaborative architecture management” and how […]

Mechatronics: An opportunity for collaboration

In April I was invited to speak about Jazz, the Jazz Integration Architecture, and Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) at a Mechatronics Council Workshop for the CPDA in Cincinnatti, OH. CPDA stands for Collaborative Product Development Associates, LLC. After some research, I learned that they are focused on product lifecycle management, and that they […]

Expanding horizons: Systems engineering and software development

As you may know, IBM has been involved with creating and delivering complex, embedded systems for over 50 years now, starting with the earliest days of the NASA space program. The acquisition of Rational and then Telelogic further expanded our knowledge and footprint of Systems Engineering and embedded software development over the recent past, and […]
