IBM Rational Systems Development Solution eKit


The communication among systems and software teams has become increasingly difficult to manage as organizational systems grow in complexity. Further complicating matters, systems teams are required to develop products faster while simultaneously reducing production costs and responding to changing business needs effectively. Collaboration among teams is often forgotten as a result, causing product quality and team efficiency to suffer.


This eKit explores how to improve product quality and communication while effectively reducing costs and responding to changing business needs. Explore the concept of systems modeling language and its ability to provide engineers and architects with the means to collaborate using a common language. Explore this eKit to discover:


  • The various uses for the MDSD framework
  • The importance of automated code coverage analysis
  • An approach to modeling complex systems architecture in conjunction with DoDAF views
