MSC and in-STEP BLUE

In development, the entire project management is handled by in-STEP BLUE. The first in-STEP BLUE version in use at MSC was version 3.7, which was mainly used for requirements management and task planning. Meanwhile, our use of in-STEP BLUE has led to our own phase model based on the in-STEP BLUE CoreProcess. Increasing internationalization and development activities called for the conversion of the system into English. At the same time, state machines were unified and a number of processes automated. in-STEP BLUE is continually being adapted to our operating principles, which illustrates one thing: Processes lead to changes in tools, and tools lead to changes in processes.
