-LDRA, a vendor of standards compliance, automated software verification, source code analysis and test tools, has secured a patent for TBmanager, its premiere software life cycle traceability and verification system. TBmanager enables developers to bidirectionally link industry-standard objectives, functional requirements, design, code, and test artifacts to the people responsible for those activities. By helping define, enforce, and demonstrate a comprehensive verification workflow, TBmanager provides companies with the audit trail needed to achieve regulatory compliance of safety-critical standards.

TBmanager enables development and verification organizations in industries such as aerospace, automotive, industrial controls, rail and medical to expedite development, improve product quality, and decrease potential qualification and certification costs. By seamlessly and bidirectionally linking system artifacts across the software life cycle, TBmanager gives developers immediate visibility of and access to project status in terms of both process and the artifacts being produced and maintained. As a result, project managers can immediately analyze the impact of a requirements change on design, code, and verification activities.

“By giving customers the opportunity to gain such transparency into the software life cycle, LDRA has transported the compliance verification field to a new level of measurability and analytics,” stated Ian Hennell, LDRA Operations Director. “Software complexity has increased sharply, making manual requirements traceability time-consuming and error prone. LDRA TBmanager eliminates these costs and ensures high-quality software process by providing immediate insight into the interrelationships among the software verification artifacts and objectives.”
