When building a product in a compliance-based industry, project teams often struggle to manage and wade through a myriad of administrative tasks, interdependencies and bottlenecks throughout the project lifecycle, which leads to wasted time and resources. Fortunately, there is a better way—that is, when you have the right tools in place.
Ease the stress of regulated product development
With a system like Polarion, a full-service, collaborative application lifecycle management (ALM) system, your project teams can maximize progress and potential. Polarion lets you connect teams and projects and improve application development processes with a single, unified solution for tasks, requirements, testing and release.
With Polarion, you can unleash the full potential of your products with the ability to:
Build and manage requirements:
Managing requirements can be confusing and frustrating for even the smallest of projects. Polarion stores requirement information as individual project artifacts, or work items, that can be organized in documents and filtered and traced across a single project or multiple projects, facilitating easier review, approvals and implementation. Additionally, the tool’s document import, export and round-trip features let you integrate external exchanges with internal business processes.
In any regulated industry, maintaining traceability is a necessary but painstaking task. In Polarion, items relate to each other with organization-defined relationships. Through an intuitive interface and real-time customizable reports, you can automatically generate gap analysis and trace matrices to accommodate a busy project schedule while ensuring quality and compliance. Requirements can be traced through design, implementation and verification, simplifying complex and ongoing tasks, such as verification, risk mitigation and defect management.
Automate the verification process:
An automated lifecycle management tool can also help you simplify your test execution processes and integrate them into your existing processes. This makes it easy for your team to:
Assist in project management:
When leading a team to develop a product under strict timelines with limited resources, you must be able to track and manage progress on key milestones. Application lifecycle management tools like Polarion offer easy-to-use planning features and time management options for real-time monitoring of your project—so you can evaluate and allocate resources, easily adjust to changing demands and actively manage your team’s goals. Developing products in a highly regulated, compliance-based industry involves multiple moving parts—each dependent on the other and each as important as the next. With synchronized management of all activities and assets across the entire development lifecycle, you will accelerate collaboration, integrity and innovation in complex environments to ensure your products succeed.
