Tools for Requirements Management

Systems and software engineers developing complex solutions need to adhere to a well-defined process for managing requirements. Our tools for requirements management provide a flexible yet powerful environment for teams to collect, refine, and monitor requirements throughout the project. No need for expensive rework, and project time and costs are reduced.

What is Requirements Management?

With increasing complexity of development tasks, a solid and robust requirements management process becomes essential for project success and product quality. For development processes in regulated industries where maturity models are mandatory, requirements management is a core discipline. Essential activities to be covered by a requirements management process are identification and documentation, analyzing and allocation, change control, verification, and compliance, and providing an oversight including coverage and metrics views.

Why you need a Requirements Management tool

Implementing a complete requirements management process with just manual means can be cumbersome, and demonstrating compliance to mandatory requirements without tool support will be challenging. Advanced tools for requirements management as provided by SodiusWillert are designed to help you meet your project goals -- a high-quality product delivered on time and on budget.

Our requirements management tools cover requirements management end-to-end, from capturing and refinement to managing changes, verification of compliance, and comprehensive reporting and traceability views. And we take it even further: integration of requirements management into the lifecycle and enabling tracking from an original requirement all the way through design, implementation, and further to quality assurance testing is available to help you cope with your complex development projects.

Take design decisions with confidence

Be sure to work from the complete set of requirements by involving all your stakeholders in the requirements gathering process. The tools we offer allow all stakeholders to contribute requirements to the project, even if they are not working with the tool you have chosen. Ask all relevant stakeholders to contribute their requirements. No more unpleasant surprises due to missing features that are only discovered during acceptance testing!

Optimize your requirements review and approval process

Review the collected requirements together with those that need to be included in the decision process. Each requirement that is approved for design and development creates effort and cost, and potentially conflicts or side effects with other requirements. Therefore, it is critical to make an informed decision about the requirements to be implemented.

Maintain control over change impacts

Changes are inevitable. After approval, changes to requirements may occur due to market dynamics or when new versions or variants are planned that reuse existing requirements. Ensure that any change to an approved requirement goes through a mandatory review process before implementation of the changed requirement is approved.

Work from high quality requirements

Managing poor quality requirements is a waste of resources. INCOSE, IEEE, and other organizations have defined quality criteria for requirements: Correctness, Completeness, Unambiguity, Consistency, Necessity, Testability/Verifiability, Feasibility, Clarity, and Uniqueness. Your review process for new and changed requirements should be based on these criteria.

Maintain requirements traceability

Traceability is a mandatory capability in regulated industries. Vendors must be able to show traceability from high-level requirements through design, development, and testing. SodiusWillert's requirements management tools help you ensure this seamless traceability throughout the engineering lifecycle.
