System Verification: THE Enterprise Level Development Problem



With the evolution of System within Systems, there has been a lot of talk about the importance of ESL tools for system modeling and early embedded software development. It is true that these areas are important. However, in order for new approaches to deliver the real results for project teams, they must be integrated into the broader enterprise wide process that starts with specification and verification planning, includes block and chip level development and verification, and ultimately full system validation and closure. This process involves multiple specialists, including the systems, software, logic design, verification, and system validation engineers, and the project and verification managers that must drive and orchestrate the enterprise wide process to closure. The presentation will describe how companies need to completely re-think and re-engineer their development and verification management approach with an enterprise wide view.
