Developing high-quality systems and software is a demanding process. As industries create more software intensive systems, the execution of systems and software engineering takes a larger role in driving the quality and success of the product. A set of core processes underlies both systems and software engineering. These processes include requirements management, architecture and design, change and configuration management, and test and quality management. This presentation discusses the IBM RationalÂ® Solution for Systems and Software Engineering which supports the collaboration, workflows, tasks, and management of the work products essential to systems and software engineering. The Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering is comprised of the following tools: IBM Rational DOORS, IBM Rational Rhapsody, IBM Rational Quality Manager and IBM Rational Team Concert.
