Application Lifecycle Management: Challenges and Best Practices

Presented by Joe Barkai

Designing, implementing and testing embedded software is becoming an increasingly complex task for product companies, threatening product quality, taxing resources and challenging budgets and schedules.

The burgeoning Application Life-cycle Management (ALM) methods and tools promise to address these challenges, yet confusion and ongoing debates concerning the implementation of these methods, the role of ALM versus that of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) hamper the ability of product companies to make significant improvements in the way they develop software intensive systems. In this webinar we will:

  • Highlight some of the challenges as well as best practices in implementing ALM in discrete manufacturing industries, emphasizing practices used in automotive and aerospace industries.
  • Discuss, in depth, the roles of ALM and PLM in product development and who, if any, should be the master of the “single version of truth” of product data.
  • Propose a product development framework to implement ALM in your organization.
