In this talk we discuss how lean-agile and scaling principles support medical device development and how to build them using IBM’s Continuous Engineering solution.
Metrolink is a commuter railroad in southern California with responsibilities to operate and maintain trains throughout its rail network. Metrolink is a public agency and needed a solution for change and configuration management of its train control systems. Learn how Metrolink utilized the flexibility of Rational Team Concert to meet the needs of a railroad by customizing work items to meet federal requirements and track train performance.

Applying MBSE techniques helps teams accelerate learning and provides a holistic approach to manage trace relationships required for compliance. In this session we will discuss how solution intent “lives” with IBM Rational CLM and more specifically how RDNG helps teams enact MBSE good practices. We will discuss how teams may leverage RDNG for continuous exploration to drive a vision, roadmap and backlog. In addition RDNG allows teams to incorporate visual artifacts to foster a better understanding of requirements. This webinar will also explore how requirements are a key part of the MBSE information model and how RDNG allows organizations to develop requirements iteratively, share information across teams and reduce risk, and build specifications needed for compliance.

Lean-Agile development is finally, and rapidly, crossing the chasm to that last bastion of large-scale solutions development—the US Federal Government. In this tutorial, SAIs Steve Mayner and 321 Gang’s Harry Koehnemann introduce the latest trends in agile government contracting and program execution as described in TechFAR, GAO Agile Guidance and others. They will also describe how SAFe’s adaptive approach improves outcomes in programs that have historically been subject to fixed requirements and delivery dates, phase gate milestones (PDRs and CDRs), WBS and EVM.
Applying agile practices and scaling agile in Systems Engineering organizations has a unique set of challenges; however, the business benefits are significant. This presentation will summarize the challenges and benefits as well as case studies. We will also highlight the automation that only IBM can offer to support highly regulated and complex organizations in their journey to agile and scaled agile.
In this webinar we will be discussing the techniques to gain visibility into the detailed reports that management expects.
Agile is seen, correctly, as a means to achieving better results developing Software and in Systems development. In the small, agile practices and defined methodologies have been supporting good results for over a decade. As practices are scaled to value stream, portfolio, and enterprise levels each organization struggles at the point of including groups like Finance, Business Controls, and Compliance.

Many systems in aerospace, defense, automotive, medical, banking, and other industries have an unacceptable social or economic cost of failure. As a result, these systems are often subject to regulatory oversight and compliance standards. These organizations are adopting Lean-Agile methods, and are struggling to understand how their existing stage-gate compliance activities participate in a Lean-Agile flow of value.
Reviews are a key aspect to improving product design and development. Not only do reviews provide an opportunity to find errors, omissions, risks and opportunities early and often in the product lifecycle, but they also enable increased understanding and communication amongst the development team. Comments, design decisions and rationale are valuable outputs from these reviews, and yet this data is frequently not recorded and kept with the data it describes. Meeting minutes, action item lists and other review artifacts are scattered in different tools, notes, notebooks, and folders disjointed from the design artifacts.
The classical systems engineering practice is mostly process centric, but with the recent advances in Information Technologies, we have started to engage in model-based and other software-supported activities that make us more efficient and our products better. The subject of our INCOSE IS 2016 paper was a pursuit of further improvements in the software tools supporting the systems engineers,
