Automating Requirements Traceability
ALM tool provides, facilities for the careful management and monitoring of all aspects of software development, but rely on manual intervention to collate information on code development, verification and validation.
Learn how that process can be automated using your ALM tool of choice.
As recognized by ISO 26262, static analysis yields many benefits including checking for adherence to coding standards. Sometimes known as “language subsets”, coding standards aim to improve one or more of the portability, safety, and security aspects of a program by restricting those aspects of the chosen programming language mostly likely to cause problems in those areas.
Dynamic analysis complements static analysis. It involves the compilation and execution of some or all of the code base, to validate or verify its characteristics in practice. AUTOSAR Adaptive, for example, requires the use of a POSIX compliant RTOS, and ISO 26262 requires compliant applications to be analysed dynamically.
Test Driven Development is increasingly popular in automotive application development, and the use of manual unit test frameworks is seeing a similar upturn in popularity in parallel. TDD can be achieved using a COTS application like the LDRA tool suite, or a manual unit test framework can be complemented by such a tool to achieve the code coverage required by ISO 26262 to show that tests are complete and traceable to requirements.

Software Of Unknown Pedigree (SOUP)
Not everyone has the luxury of working with code developed in accordance with clearly defined requirements, coding standards, a well-controlled development process, and a coherent test regime.
Learn how to leverage SOUP and remain in compliance with the principles of ISO 26262.
LDRA Is Here To Help
For more than 40 years, LDRA has developed and driven the market for software that automates code analysis and software testing for safety-, mission-, security-, and business-critical markets. Working with clients to achieve early error identification and full compliance with industry standards, LDRA traces requirements through static and dynamic analysis to unit testing and verification for a wide variety of hardware and software platforms. Boasting a worldwide presence, LDRA has headquarters in the United Kingdom with subsidiaries in the
United States, Germany, and India coupled with an extensive distributor network.

ISO 9001 | TÜV Certification
The TÜV and ISO certificates each say something a little different about LDRA and its products. ISO 9001 certification demonstrates LDRA’s ability to consistently meet and exceed customer expectations. And TÜV approval of software test tools suggests something more specific about the capabilities of the products, and their capacity to meet the exacting demands of the world’s predominant functional safety standards.
