PROJECT: Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP)
Develop the software to support the third generation of the IABP product.
HOW RBC ADDED VALUE:
RBC produced user interface requirements, design, development, and testing for the new system.
Multiple teams working on a complex product with an insufficient number of prototypes to support concurrent development.
RBC developed a PC-based pump simulator using QNX, a Posix-compliant operating system, to allow software development work to proceed without hardware. This parallel approach allowed us to simultaneously design and develop the pump controller in different locations with limited hardware.
RBC delivered the project on time and on budget.
