Envision continuously mines the millions of file changes that occur during a complex SoC project and effectively utilizes the design tool log files that are typically discarded today. For example, the number of bugs found during a project will vary over time. As the RTL stabilizes, you should see a downward trend in the bug count indicating that the project is on track for completion.
By using Big Data analytics to filter and track the bug count across various IPs and projects, Envision can automatically flag and identify delays in the downward trajectory, and extrapolate to determine the expected project delay.
This tool drilldown can then be tied back to a particular IP team or user group, so you can make improved decisions on where to focus additional engineering, compute or license resources rather than applying them blindly across the project.
