ITK SafePack® – Your Personal Safety Supervisor

„Standard-compliant development of safety-critical software doesn't have to be at the expense of speed and efficiency. Especially in strong interconnected projects, with a large number of people involved, ALM-Tools are suitable in order to gain efficiency and to guarantee standard-compliance. With ITK SafePack® we offer a solution, which guides the user intuitively through the complete software development process according to ISO 26262-6.”

Meet all requirements of ISO 26262-6

Especially in strong interconnected projects, with a large development scope and many people involved, ALM-Tools are suitable in order to guarantee traceability of test results from test case to implementation up to meeting all requirements during the development process. ITK SafePack®, a Polarion ALM-based solution, covers all requirements of the automotive software development process in one reference process. Due to integrated automatisms, which control status changes and sequences of process steps, ITK SafePack® is also suitable for users with little experience of the standard. For example safety requirements will only be shown as “verified” after the implementation and the successful accompanied test case. Therefore process deviations will be visualized.

 

 

Individually adaptable

Not only Safety Manager can use ITK SafePack® for a standard-compliant development and quality assurance, but also the whole team will benefit from the tool-based visualization of the fulfilled standard requirements in the software development process. With the automated generation of documents the effort will be significantly reduced and additionally the uniform formatting of the documents will be guaranteed. ITK SafePack® is adjustable to your individual company and project requirements.
