Getting started with Design Management 4.0.1

About the download: IBM® Installation Manager deploys a Jazz Team Server as well as the Design Management capabilities. You can install Design Management onto its own, separate Jazz Team Server or you can install Design Management onto an existing, shared Jazz Team Server that includes the full set of Rational® solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) capabilities.

There are three ways to integrate the Design Management capabilities with Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager, and Rational Requirements Composer:

  • (Standard approach) In IBM Installation Manager, add both the CLM and Design Management repositories to the preferences, and then install the CLM and Design Management installation packages at the same time.
  • Install Collaborative Lifecycle Management 2012, and then install Design Management into the same package group.
  • Install Design Management, and then install Collaborative Lifecycle Management 2012 into the same package group.

To explore the Design Management capabilities only, download Design Management from the All Downloads tab. This option installs Design Management with its own Jazz Team Server.

You can view designs on the Design Management Server from two different modeling products. You can use Rational Software Architect, for software designers in the IT space, or Rational Rhapsody Design Manager, for systems and embedded software engineers.
