Distinctive Approach

Sablime® builds its development process around the Modification Request (MR). Team members or customers propose changes by creating an MR. When MRs are reviewed they can be deferred, killed, assigned for study or accepted for implementation in one or more generics (codelines). MRs are the unit of change control. Sablime® tracks what changes are made with each MR, and ensures these changes are delivered together to integration. Integrators assemble versions of the product based on what MRs or MR states to include.

Each MR is assigned to one or more project members with appropriate priority and due date. If an MR requires extensive effort or spans several areas of responsibility, it can be subdivided into smaller requests and independently assigned, tracked and managed in different generics.

Sablime® allows customization of the number of test levels and membership of test teams. As an MR passes through its life cycle, appropriate project members are notified of events via email. This communication promotes clear responsibility and prompt, timely actions. At every stage, Sablime® keeps track of who, when, and why each action was taken.
