LDRA Optimizes Agile Development and Verification of Critical Embedded Applications with New Jira Software Integration

Developers can use the LDRA-Jira Software solution to automate agile software quality analysis and verification for functional safety and security standards compliance

WIRRAL, United Kingdom--()--LDRA today announced the integration of the LDRA tool suite with Atlassian Jira Software (both cloud and server versions) to optimize agile development and verification of critical embedded applications. Embedded developers working in safety- and security-critical organizations must demonstrate compliance with industry functional safety and security standards, and to do this they are making the shift toward agile development methods. The new integration gives development organizations an agile solution that optimizes workflows with requirements traceability and automates software quality analysis and verification as well as documentation production.

The LDRA TBmanager Integration Package for Jira delivers bidirectional end-to-end traceability from Jira issues and test cases to requirements, design, code, and testing activities and artifacts. This integration supports and enables both Scrum and Kanban agile workflows to address the requirements of critical software safety standards such as DO-178B/C (aerospace and defense), IEC 62304 (medical devices), ISO 26262 (automotive), EN 50128 (rail transportation), IEC 60880 (nuclear energy), and IEC 61508 (industrial control) applications.

Bidirectional interface and exchange of requirements capabilities, along with test case and test execution results, enable users to see the status and verification of requirements reflected in Jira. Furthermore, developers can verify traceability through Jira’s traceability matrix report and thereby ensure all documented issues in Jira and imported requirements have been addressed.

“Developers across all critical embedded applications are challenged with efficiently addressing the increasing functional safety and security requirements mandated by their industries,” said Ian Hennell, operations director, LDRA. “Offering this integration between the LDRA tool suite and Jira optimizes agile development and provides our customers with a cost-effective lifecycle traceability, transparency, and verification solution.”
