PTC Global Software Development

Software has continued to increase exponentially in products, making them smarter and safer. For example, while previous generations of automobiles relied exclusively on electro-mechanical controls, today there are over 100 million lines of code in the average luxury vehicle.(1) The PTC Global Software Development solution enables organizations to transform their software engineering practices in order to streamline compliance while improving product quality, lowering costs, and reducing development cycle time.

PTC Requirements and Validation

Empowers teams to specify, define, verify and validate requirements throughout the product lifecycle, featuring end-to-end traceability, change and configuration management and requirements interchange. Enables organizations to deliver higher quality, more innovative products that meet customer needs.

PTC Model-Based Systems Engineering

Almost doubled in the past four years to become the top system engineering challenge. Helping them to overcome this situation, Best-in-Class companies are 122% more likely than competitors to have a strategy to improve their ability to predict system behavior prior to testing.(3) The PTC Model-Based Systems Engineering solution captures, communicates and simulates systems design through a standards-based, visual design language. This enables early, rapid, concurrent exploration of options, improved cross-discipline collaboration, high rates of re-use, and accelerated time-to-market.

PTC Software Modeling

According to the Electronic Engineering Journal, system design teams have a high ratio of software to hardware engineers – often on the order of ten-to-one.(4) The PTC Software Modeling solution allows embedded, IoT and other software developers to work in the intuitive and standards-based UML design language, and automatically generate software code in popular programming languages. Changes to either models or code are automatically synchronized. The resulting integration of design and development enables customers to accelerate software delivery time, eliminate manual coding errors and ensure fidelity of requirements, models and code.
