Visure Solutions Streamlines Requirements Lifecycle Management

Date 2013/2/27 8:24:18 | Topic: Product News

Visure Solutions, the market leader in Requirements Lifecycle Management, announced the release of its award-winning requirements definition and management solution, Visure Requirements 4.5. Designed to maximize analysis and team efficiency, Visure Requirements 4.5 delivers a simplified interface and process architecture that streamlines requirements capture, analysis and management, giving project teams faster, more powerful requirements engineering tools for product development.

To provide development flexibility, Visure Requirements 4.5 forms the process backbone, managing all requirements-related information in a way that mirrors how the information flows and interacts in product development. Any requirements-related information―whether requirements of different levels, test cases, use cases, etc.―can be configured, related and analyzed based on process needs. With all information stored in one location, the Visure Requirements 4.5 user experience is much improved, faster, and easier to use.

Visure Requirements 4.5 maximizes requirements management productivity by ensuring that the most used, most needed functionality is readily and easily available in a simplified interface that improves clarity and reduces the chance of human error. To extend this efficiency further, the new version also simplifies complex project structures through templates that development teams can use to set attribute values, block assignments and simplify tags.

Companies seeking compliance, whether for automotive (ISO 26262, Automotive SPICE), medical (IEC 62304), avionics (DO-178B/C, DO-278A), rail (EN 50128) or industrial safety (IEC 61508), energy (IEC 60880), defense (DO-254), can use the templates to define requirements standards and reuse the template across teams and product lines. In this way, Visure Requirements helps standardize and enforce defined processes, formalizing a common requirements specification structure across an organization and its supply chain even when teams are geographically separated.

“Products today involve many components from various suppliers across continents. To minimize corporate liability, these products must come together in record time and function as required, without failure,” confirmed Christian Christophoridis, Vice President Product Development, Visure Solutions. “To do this successfully, product requirements must be managed in an automated, traceable system that links each requirement directly to its associated tests and deliverables. That way, Visure Requirements enables developers to quickly and easily trace to the point of failure, implement corrective measures and validate the product.”

Visure Requirements belongs to a new generation of Requirements Engineering tools where the emphasis is not only on requirements management, but also on requirements analysis, project organization, and descriptions of the system’s high-level functions. Visure Requirements streamlines the requirements management process across the complete development lifecycle, allowing more effective collaboration between teams at various stages of development. It supports requirements capture, analysis, specification, validation, verification, management and reuse.

Process agnostic, Visure Requirements facilitates any development process from waterfall to agile. It integrates process, quality enforcement and collaboration in a single platform while simultaneously tailoring views to each role, ensuring that project managers, quality assurance analysts, designers and developers are able to immediately access the information most relevant to their responsibilities. Thanks to the focus on the interrelationships of requirements, system components, code and tests, complete traceability can be obtained across the entire requirements lifecycle.
