The IBM Rational platform enables you to define, model, specify, simulate, develop, test and integrate systems and embedded software. The platform consists of integrated tools that can enable distributed teams to collaborate quickly and easily. Working with IBM's tools we can help ensure you are conforming to IEC 61508, EN 50128, ISO 26262 and MISRA compliance requirements. 


Showing compliance to DO-178 can be a challenge in terms of the rigor, traceability and reporting required. An effective platform and process can reduce both the burden and the costs of compliance. IBM Rational solutions for systems and software development provide the cross-team and cross-life-cycle collaboration, automation and reporting capabilities to address the needs of DO-178 projects.

The IBM Rational Solution for Medical Device Development provides support for Design Control, IEC 62304 and Intended Use Validation. Design Control provides delivery processes, work tasks, work products, process roles and guidance that support the objectives, plans, tasks, and work products described and specified by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Design Control Guidance for Medical Device Manufacturers.
