Data Sheet One of the keys to a successful project is detailed planning in the initial phase. This plan- ning should include determining project scope, defining requirements and system architec- ture, identifying risks, performing risk assessment, and creating a detailed project plan. In a Solution Assessment, Wind River® Professional Services systems architects work collabora- tively with your design and program teams to interpret system requirements, architect plat- form system options, and provide recommendations for meeting business, technical, and program goals. Our past system design experience in several vertical markets allows shorter ramp-up time for assessment efforts while delivering high quality. With each engagement, Wind River tailors activities and deliverables to fit the program's unique needs. The following are examples of activities that can be performed in a Solution Assessment: Requirements • Review functional requirements, security requirements, features, and specifications for candidate hardware and software architectures • Review certification requirements (e.g., DO-178B/C, IEC 61508, EN 50128) and define appropriate processes for achieving safety certification or compliance • Review the existing security and safety requirements for the system and recommend improvements • Review business and technical drivers, opportunities, and constraints • Assist with defining the initial system requirements Design • Evaluate system architectures and data flow control, and provide a system recommen- dation (version-based if applicable) with all supporting documentation, rationale, and analysis • Perform architectural trade-off analysis to identify cost, benefit, and risk for system solutions that meet requirements • Prepare partitioned system-level block diagram(s) with high-level data and control flows of the system • Perform a feasibility study on customer-selected technology and product use cases • Identify and incorporate third-party or partner software modules and ecosystems, and document in an integration plan • Examine tradeoffs for swapping hardware components and software packages PROFESSIONAL SERVICES SOLUTION ASSESSMENT AN INTEL COMPANY ™
