New capabilities In Rational Rhapsody, that certainly will help the development community, enable team collaboration; sharing, and reviewing of design artifacts and improve validation of designs early. IBM® Rational® Rhapsody® Design Manager 3.0 leverages Jazz integration to enable teams to share design information on a central location that is accessible from a web client. The new Rational Rhapsody Version 7.6 development environment offers systems engineers improved activity diagram simulation and co-simulation with MathWorks Simulink, which can be used for early validation of functionality. Version 7.6 also includes a user interface with a new look and colors, improved testing support, and usability enhancements.
Check out this demo and see for yourself. The demo provides an overview of Rational Rhapsody Design Manager's capabilities to help teams collaborate, share, review and manage their Rational Rhapsody system engineering or embedded software design information within the overall product lifecycle. It shows how design information can be centrally located and accessed using a web client by the extended team or by a Rational Rhapsody client for system engineers and developers using Rational Rhapsody. A central location enables searching across design and lifecycle information to help locate information faster and assists in keeping the entire team informed of the current status of the design.
The demo also describes how to use Rational Rhapsody Design Manager to conduct design reviews that allow stakeholders to provide comments and visual mark-ups linked to the designs. See how you can trace from designs to other lifecycle artifacts using Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) based linking and visualize relationships between designs and lifecycle artifacts through a dependency relationship diagram.
