Diagnostic Grifols improves its product development process thanks to the work of ULMA Embedded Solutions

Facilitation and improvement of the management and documentation of all customer product line development processes.

The engineers at ULMA Embedded Solutions worked on a project where the customer, Diagnostic Grifols, needed to improve the management of their product development life cycle, which can last up to 15 years. Diagnostic Grifols develops devices, instruments and reactants for laboratories that perform clinical trails, at a time when sector regulations are ever stricter.

ULMA Embedded Solutions, based on its experience in managing product development life cycles, and employing tools provided by its partner IBM, designed and implemented a solution to facilitate quality and test management. This solution also helps generate documentation for all product lines, reducing costs.

In addition, the engineers at ULMA Embedded Solutions managed to migrate over 8000 IBM Rational DOORS test cases (a requirement management tool) to IBM Rational Quality Manager (a quality management tool). To automate the process as much as possible they had to create a link between the two tools, whilst maintaining traceability between requirements and test cases.

Given the success of the project, IBM has published a case study detailing the work.
