PTC Integrity Development Processes Achieve Capability
Level 2 Against Automotive SPICE and PTC Integrity Fit for Purpose for ISO
26262 Compliant Development

 

Bangalore, April 9, 2013 –PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC) today announced it continues its commitment to the automotive
industry standards that help automotive
manufacturers
comply with key industry safety related
systems.  The latest release of PTC Integrity software has been certified as Fit for Purpose for functional safety
development in alignment with IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 (functional safety
standard for passenger vehicles). In addition, the PTC Integrity development
organization has achieved Capability Level 2 under the Automotive SPICE
(Software Process Improvement and Capability Determination) framework.

 

“Automotive development organizations are managing complex requirements
for embedded software in their products,” said Jake Simpson, divisional general
manager, ALM segment, PTC.  “Continuing to certify PTC Integrity with
automotive safety industry standards like A-SPICE and ISO 26262 will help our
customers comply with functional safety standards to ensure safe software
development processes.”

 

PTC Integrity is an application
lifecycle management
solution that manages all global software development
processes and connects all software engineering artifacts, including
requirements, models, code, and testing, to ensure comprehensive lifecycle
traceability.

 

A-SPICE is a framework for designing and assessing software development
processes. When implemented effectively, it leads to better processes and
better product quality. It also helps to improve the cooperation among complex
supply chains and between globally distributed development and engineering
centers.  Method Park, a global consulting company, has assessed the PTC
Integrity development processes at Capability Level 2.

 

TÜV SÜD Automotive, a global leader in technical certification
services, has certified that PTC Integrity is fit for the purpose to develop
safety-related systems for use in ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 compliant development
processes. This independent assessment of PTC Integrity single platform
approach and software change and configuration management, requirements
management and test management capabilities enables automotive engineering
organizations developing safety-related embedded systems to qualify the tool
chain being used to produce these systems up to ASIL-D or SIL3, the most
stringent levels of safety function as defined by the standards.

 

PTC Integrity has an open architecture to integrate disparate tools
into a streamlined software system engineering process to allow orchestration
of software change and collaboration across the technology supply chain. With
PTC Integrity, development teams can improve productivity and quality,
streamline compliance and gain complete product visibility, which ultimately
drives more innovative products into the market.
