In recent years, it has become increasingly clear that model-based software and system development is the best choice for coping with the growing complexity in the product life cycle. It manages to keep both the cost and innovation pressure as well as the growing requirements around safety, traceability and quality under control.
Support for product line development
With LemonTree 3.0, models and their diagrams can be compared in a fine-granular way to ensure complete and consistent merging.
LieberLieber has developed LemonTree 3.0 specifically for the introduction of model-based product line development with a Model Package Management System (MPMS), based on Enterprise Architect. This allows distributed teams to work on different model versions while keeping the “base software platform” in a consistent state.
The central idea of this concept is the application of already existing approaches that have become established in the configuration management of source code. On the one hand, parts of the model that have been cut out of the platform development can be used as components in the project development without losing the references. On the other hand, it also becomes possible to merge changes in both directions.
Product line development supports companies in reusing or varying software already created within the framework of a platform. The resulting variants differ in their functional scope, but the basic components of the software are always used again.
In this scenario, each user has the security of using or precisely referencing specific artefacts of the model in a defined version. He can import individual versions of a specific package into his model without destroying his previous developments, as LemonTree intelligently merges the parts. This allows a team to reuse individual parts of the development in different projects.
Managing model changes across the entire supply chain
Training offerings significantly expanded
The new release LemonTree 3.0 is available now. Arrange a webinar today to get to know the solution and its field of application better. We can help your teams optimise collaboration across the entire supply chain in model-based development and thus complete projects faster.
