CI/CD

"The main characteristic of the DevOps [and CI/CD] movement is to strongly advocate automation and monitoring at all steps of software construction, from integration, testing, releasing to deployment and infrastructure management."

The US Airforce

Only 20 years ago most hardware products were designed to be offline. The most common approach to building those products was a waterfall engineering process where engineers define requirements, design the system, build it, then turn it over to an operator. Today, devices that were once hardware only are now orchestrated by software and artificial intelligence. Software provides huge flexibility to these systems and from a user standpoint, it’s like magic - a 3 year old phone can feel new with a software update. This isn't the exception anymore, it is the expectation. For these devices, engineering is never complete. This means that engineers must plan beyond the development phase and think of continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD) for every new system they design.

What is CI CD and why is important?

CI CD is a methodology used within DevOps. DevOps is a software engineering culture and practice that unifies software development (Dev) and software operation (Ops). It is a technique where software can undergo continuous integration (CI) for building, testing and merging, and continuous deployment (CD) into devices in production. Combining MBD with CI/CD creates a thread of accountability for system performance from hardware to software and across the entire lifecycle. It would require companies to use the same model to design the system, generate code, validate performance, and use in production as a digital twin. By making this extension, companies will benefit from both the risk reduction of MBD and the speed of DevOps and allow them to:

  • Ship hardware quickly and efficiently: Time is money and a delay could mean the difference between being first and last to launch. In a world where hundreds of companies are competing in the same space, DevOps lets you transfer less critical software features into post production meaning you can release hardware faster than your competitors
  • Continuously reduce operational risks: The DevOps methodology suggests breaking down problems discovered in operation into smaller, more achievable tasks, introducing specific changes, testing those changes using real world data, and deploying incrementally. Using real world data to test changes means that systems will get better and more resilient over time, with lower risk
