Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager 6.0.3 "New and Noteworthy"

Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager 6.0.3 New & Noteworthy

If you work on complex engineering projects involving multiple teams that use large amounts of data across several lifecycle management applications, Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager unlocks the data from your applications, and provides insights you need to make the best engineering decisions.
With Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager, you create views and diagrams that consolidate data from multiple sources, to simplify tasks like:

  • Change impact analysis: What work must we do for this change request?
  • Situational awareness: Where are we as we converge towards "done"?
  • Validity checking: Is our engineering information complete and related correctly?

Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager is a separately licensed product that you can install with the Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution. The product is included in the CLM Web Installer; it is also included in the IBM Installation Manager CLM repositories.

For a general introduction to Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager, see the following topics:

New in Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager 6.0.3

New wizard helps you focus on specific related artifacts

When you create views to explore the relationships among artifacts from various data sources, the new Show links to wizard helps you focus on specific related artifacts. In the wizard you can configure the artifacts that you want to show in the view.

Previously, the Show links to menu in RELM took too long to load on servers with multiple project areas and user defined types, causing a considerable performance impact.
Focusing on the required artifacts narrows the search, thereby improving the performance significantly.
Right-click your artifact container, and then click Show links to to open the wizard.

  1. You can limit the scope of the related artifact container by selecting a project. The list contains the project areas that you chose in the view creation wizard.
    Limit the scope

  2. Pick the artifact type to link to.
    Choose artifact type

After you click Finish, the related artifact container is added to the view. It includes only the artifacts that match the type and project scope that you selected in the wizard.

This release of Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager 6.0.3 also contains several quality improvements.
