UniPhi 5.3 enables reconfigurable system hierarchy visualizations, the generation of comprehensive traceability reports, and more.
Read on to understand the specific new features that users can expect to find in this latest version, and check out the links below to learn more about the UniPhi paradigm shift, or to request a free, 60-day trial.
The UniPhi Lifeguard
If you’re already a UniPhi user, then you are no doubt familiar with the Lifeguard – the automated intelligence that constantly checks all Project data for issues and rule violations. This update expands the Lifeguard’s reach and makes it the central authority for consistency in all aspects of development. The Lifeguard now automatically scans all Project Artifacts and their interfaces any time a change is made, and allows Variant-specific architectures to be selected and analyzed – providing immediate validation of all development efforts.
System Hierarchy Visualization
Users now have access to a complete, overarching visualization of their Project architecture. The Hierarchy Visualization panel provides a dynamic, top-down look at an entire system that is kept up to date whenever changes are made. The graph can be reconfigured at any time to get a focused look at individual Subsystems, or groups of Subsystems, and their Composition Members.
Traceability Report Generation
To better support customer use-cases involving the reporting of Requirements and Test coverage information, we’ve added a new interactive dashboard to UniPhi. Users are now able to generate detailed reports that graphically depict a Project’s status across a number of different metrics related to Lifeguard errors or the traceability of Requirements and Tests to Project Artifacts. This report can be updated whenever changes are made and is a useful mechanism to share the latest status of UniPhi Projects with stakeholders and to help drive development priorities.
The Artifact Merge capability allows users to merge Project Artifacts between branches. This enables developers to conduct development on branches independently, and then merge any relevant changes back to trunk as needed.
UniPhi’s In-Product Help Documentation continues to be improved. The Help Section has been reorganized and new content has been added to reflect the updates made to the Lifeguard and its impacts on Architecture Design and Design Resources. We’ve also added a few more links to the Welcome Screen including a resource that describes the use of UniPhi with Continuous Integration, and a detailed explanation of how to request more focused support from our team.
