solutions for Automotive Industry by Datamato

Largest Manufacturer in Indian Automotive Industry

Datamato’s relationship with this client goes back to more than 3 years now. Due to its concerted and sustained efforts, Datamato made its first foray in late 2015. Initially, they purchased minimal number of licenses for internal use only. After initial usage, and with hand-holding from Datamato and multiple successful POCs executed/orchestrated by Datamato, the client realized true potential and value-add IBM tools and related process brought in. End result of this process and sustained efforts being that the client then followed up with an even larger procurement order in July, 2016 – to use the tools across their development projects.

Business Needs/Pain-Points :

  1. No standard tool set used for development. Different projects/teams used different toolsets and standardization was conspicuous by its absence
  2. Geographically distributed teams ( India, Italy, Spain) and hence needed a strong collaborative platform for product development
  3. Diversified and varied technologies/toolsets with multiple platforms supplied by multiple vendors – so keeping on top of things was a challenge
  4. Wanted to setup a standard development practise like AUTOSAR, ISO 26262 for automotive product development
  5. Wanted a better handle and control on traceability across product life-cycle
  6. Developing standard for requirement management and development/maintenance – to be at par with JLR UK team
  7. Achieve better time-to-market for products
  8. Limited code re-usability

Solution Components

  1. IBM Rational suite of Products, including but not limited to:
    • a)Rational Rhapsody
    • b)DOORS Next Generation  (DNG)
    • c)Rational Team Concert  (RTC)
    • d)Rational Quality Manager (RQM)
    • e)Rational Publishing Engine
  2. Consulting and Services support – for implementation, execution, and reporting, to effectively leverage IBM CE tools
  3. Training : On-Job (OJT) and Hands-on

Solution Approach:

  1. Provided IBM CE software tools and services for entire development life cycle
  2. Helped and hand-held the client to implement new, scalable architecture keeping an eye on future growth, leveraging IBM toolset
  3. Helped the client to set up end-to-end development cycle using tool set, and having coverage right from requirements (DNG) to test-results (RQM). Essentially, helped put in place a work-flow based system across various SDLC phases, stitched together with appropriate quality-gates and requisite validations
  4. Helped the client to implement new Requirements Management (leveraging DNG and designing new requirement-gathering templates), Change Configuration Management (RTC) and modelling system (Rhapsody)
  5. Provided on-Job (OJT) as well as hands-on training to the client resources

Solution Benefits:

  1. Requirement coverage as well as quality increased many-folds (as previously it was manual excel-based requirement gathering process)
  2. Configuration Management activities too were streamlined and showed an uptrend by as much as 15+ % across projects
  3. All the quality-gates (less errors meant lesser rework efforts) and re-use of artefacts ensured that the development time was reduced by about 20 odd % points, resulting in increased quality and faster time-to-market
