ANSYS SCADE Lifecycle Capabilities

Requirements Traceability

SCADE Lifecycle provides an integrated traceability analysis solution for safety-critical design processes with SCADE System, SCADE Suite, SCADE Display, SCADE Solutions for ARINC 661 and SCADE Test.

  • Connection to ALM tools: linkage to DOORS (9.5 and up) using the OSLC Standard, Dassault Systèmes Reqtify 2016
  • Graphical creation of traceability links between requirements or other structured documents and SCADE models
  • Traceability of test cases from SCADE Test Environment projects
  • Bidirectional navigation across requirements and tests
  • Propagation of traceability information to test harnesses (RTRT, LDRA, VectorCAST)
  • Compliant with DO-178B, DO-178C, EN 50128, IEC 61508, ISO 26262, and IEC 60880 standards

Project Documentation Generation

SCADE LifeCycle Reporter automates the time-consuming creation of detailed and complete reports from SCADE Suite, SCADE Display, SCADE System and SCADE UA Page Creator for ARINC 661 designs through:

  • Generation of reports in RTF or HTML formats
  • Customization of report content and display
  • Customization of generic report templates based on TCL scripting language
  • Establishment of common documentation standards
  • Integration with SCADE LifeCycle ALM Gateway for reporting traceability information at model level

SCADE LifeCycle Reporter is qualified as a verification tool under DO-178B and as a DO-330 TQL-5 tool under DO-178C for SCADE Suite, SCADE Display and SCADE UA Page Creator applications. Reporter certification data is available.
