As the food industry races to comply with the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), manufacturers are working to adopt more robust track and trace processes. A critical component to achieving compliance is the integration of automated data capture solutions throughout all stages of food production—from farm to table. This whitepaper examines technology considerations food manufacturers should weigh when implementing these systems, along with how to tackle the subsequent challenges that are sure to arise. Once the U.S. food industry understands how mobile solutions can enable track & traceability, manufacturers will be equipped with an efficient solution that not only helps to achieve regulatory compliance, but also improves overall business efficiencies.
This white paper examines key challenges to software development and discusses how companies can leverage best practices and IBM Rational solutions to more profitably and effectively develop software for safety-critical projects while complying with the DO-178C standard.
Agile methods have become increasingly popular because they empower organizations to more quickly address emerging opportunities, to better ensure accurate fulfillment of functional requirements and to significantly enhance team productivity. Many organizations, however, are hesitant to employ agile methods for their safety-critical systems—since they have serious concerns about compromising those systems and thereby exposing themselves to completely unacceptable consequences.IBM Rational Chief Evangelist Bruce Powel Douglass explains how best practices for project management can assist organizations in experiencing all the benefits of agile development while continuing to maintain rigorous standards essential for successful delivery of safety-critical systems.
Agile methods have a reputation for being fast and adaptive and can enhance both quality and team productivity. For these reasons they are attractive to software teams in many different domains - including safety-critical systems development. But how can agile methods be adapted to meet the needs of such a challenging domain? In the fourth episode of the series, IBM Rational Chief Evangelist, Bruce Powel Douglass discusses how agile practices can be adapted to meet the evidence needs of safety-critical projects.
Safety certification for avionics hardware and software is an expensive, complicated process, but absolutely necessary to ensure safe skies for commercial aircraft passengers and military jets flying in the national airspace. Now unmanned aircraft flight critical electronics will also have to meet these same safety requirements as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) starts to open up the national airspace to unmanned aerial systems (UASs). While the rules are still being drawn up, embedded software and hardware designers are already looking at ways for UAS platform integrators to solve certification challenges and manage the process of compliance with safety certification standards such as DO-178B & C. This webcast of industry experts will discuss how to enable safety certification of UAS platforms through efficient and cost-effective solutions.
