TVS adds web interface to its asureSIGN verification tool for real-time requirements management sign-off status


Bristol, UK, 14 January, 2015 – TVS, a leader in software test and hardware verification solutions, today announced the addition of asureVIEWTM to the latest release of its asureSIGNTM management and verification tool. asureVIEW is a web based interface that allows asureSIGN to view real-time status of product requirement and test/coverage results. Bringing confidence to and making it easier for users, asureVIEW gives a pictorial view of accurate information about the verification efforts for both hardware and software projects. The information collected and the analysis tool provided is particularly useful for verification or test engineers and for program managers.

asureSIGN is a requirements driven management and verification tool for managers, developers and integrators. Based on a Requirements Driven Verification and Test (RDVT) flow, it helps to ensure that product requirements have been successfully tested and implemented thus supporting compliance to various safety standards.

The latest asureSIGN release also includes the ability to merge information from multiple sources. This means that information from simulation can be merged with formal verification results from OneSpin Solutions, further differentiating asureSIGN as the industry’s only tool that can combine results from formal and simulation from multiple vendors.




Demonstrably, TVS is constantly upgrading and developing new products to ensure that its test and verification tools continue to give its customers the tools they need to address projects efficiently, saving on time and costs, and importantly enabling them to become leaders in their own fields too. Furthermore, TVS is currently working closely with companies involved in the automotive, rail and avionics industries towards another major asureSIGN release in March 2015.

A full and detailed list of asureSIGN features can be found on the TVS website at: www.testandverification.com/solutions/requirements/.
