Procead Feature Overview

Model driven workflows

  • Procead makes process and quality demands binding and practicable
  • Descriptive UML is used to setup workflows with substantial quality baseline control
  • Separate workflows for project execution and product development
  • No legacy workflow scripting required

Integrated Version and Status Control

Sensible element version numbers and states

  • Procead maintains the version and status property of your model elements.
  • Progressing and Iterating becomes visible by means of version increments.
  • The status property is bound to a quality level, resulting from your product qualification model.
  • No external version control needed.

Baseline Configuration Management

  • Package version and status properties are auto-aligned to child elements.
  • Product configurations may be graphically setup for decision gates.
  • Project progress decisions trigger the saving of product configuration baselines.
  • Qualified and baselined work may be locked against inadvertent changes.

Quality Control - Work Product Approval and Quality Gates

  • Supervision of baselined element properties and connections to spot resubmission.
  • Fundamental qualification rules built-in to keep packages and elements aligned.
  • Work product configurations to rule decision/quality gates.

Model - Code - Linking
