New capabilities enable team collaboration; sharing, and reviewing of design artifacts; improve validation of designs early; and help meet safety standards. 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. Additional improvements assist in the development of software that meets safety-critical standards with ARINC 653 support and optimizations to make it easier to certify applications. Version 7.6 also includes a user interface with a new look and colors, improved testing support, and usability enhancements.
