Why Compliance Matters in Development
Audits and compliance are important in software development. And they're a must for safety-critical industries, including:
These industries are highly regulated. And every piece of embedded software and hardware that’s developed needs to comply with standards.

Perforce Solutions For Audit & Compliance
Pass Audits and Get In Compliance With Perforce
Perforce tools — Helix Core, Methodics IPLM, Helix ALM, Helix QAC, and Klocwork — minimize risk and help development teams pass audits.
Mitigate risk before you ship.
Use Helix QAC or Klocwork to prevent, detect, and eliminate defects. You’ll get visibility into the highest priority issues in your code. So, you’ll be able to prioritize issues based on risk factors and fix the most critical issues first.
Use Helix ALM to identify and analyze risk before you ship. You’ll get a traceability matrix showing requirements, tests, and bugs. So, you’ll be able to prioritize issues and find the root cause of defects.
Get complete traceability across development with Perforce solutions.
Helix ALM creates traceability across requirements, tests, bugs, and code. You can even create a traceability matrix automatically.
Methodics IPLM establishes traceability from requirements through design to verification. Every verification is collated and visible on the IPs and IP versions — so everyone can find it. And you can integrate Methodics IPLM with Helix ALM through an API.
Helix Core completes the traceability by linking source code and binary files to Helix ALM requirements and Methodics IPLM IP. You’ll get a complete change history across your digital assets. And you’ll have a full audit trail for compliance.
Comply with coding standards to improve overall software quality.
Use Helix QAC or Klocwork to enforce compliance with a coding standard. You can choose the coding standard of your choice — such as MISRA, AUTOSAR, or CERT. Both static code analyzers will highlight rule violations. So, you’ll be able to make the right changes and ensure that your C, C++, C#, and Java code is compliant.
Change Impact Analysis
Know the impact of every requirement change.
Use Helix ALM to do a change impact analysis. Your requirements will be linked to tests, bugs, and source code. So, if a requirement changes, you’ll know what was impacted. This takes the guesswork out of understanding and approving requirement changes.
Tests fail. And when they do, you need to know why.
Use Helix ALM to manage your testing efforts. Helix ALM can link failed test runs to defects — and provide traceability from the test to the resolution of the failure. You can even pair it with Helix Core. So, you can trace a requirement in Helix ALM all the way to source code changes in Helix Core.
