Policy-driven development can help businesses in the embedded systems space achieve the consistency and accuracy needed for reducing the risks and costs associated with embedded software development.

Benefits of adopting policy-driven development include:

  • Ensuring that engineers don’t make trade-offs that potentially compromise reliability and performance.
  • Ensuring that engineers build security into the application, safeguarding it from potential attacks.
  • Preventing defects that could result in costly recalls, litigation, or a damaged market position.
  • Accurately and consistently applying quality processes (internally-defined or industry-mandated).
  • Gaining the traceability and audit-ability required to demonstrate compliance with industry standards (DO-178B, FDA software validation, etc.).
