Requirements Management


In our experience, adopting a manual approach to Requirements Management is very time consuming and often leads to inefficiencies in the design process. An automated and relational approach is an excellent way to ease the process, whilst adding a new level of confidence that the requirements have been implemented, verified and reported sufficiently.

Today’s designs can have thousands of requirements that need to be implemented and verified in order to achieve sign-off. When working in a design environment that is driven by strict certification criteria, efficient methods are needed to track, maintain, update and report on these requirements.
