Product Information : Release Manager
PROBLEMS
  • Production programs differ from released test programs?
  • Paper getting lost or misplaced and e-mails getting deleted?
  • No automated method to process changes?
  • Collection of necessary documents for a release tedious and time consuming?
  • Inconsistent communication between groups (i.e. Design, Test, QA, and Product Engineers)
  • Test and production facilities off site?

Are change and data management issues adversely affecting your product quality and release cycle?

SOLUTION
A product designed to meet the challenging and unique requirements of the manufacturing test environment by combining the elements of Change Management, Version Control, Release Management and Project Control into a single, unified system.
