Best Practices: Key Requirements Definition and Management Process Improvements Enabled by PTC Capabilities

Requirements Definition and Management: Best Practices
  • Requirements lifecycle management and control: Manage and control individual requirement definitions and specification approval throughout the lifecycle.
  • Requirements traceability: Establish traceability between customer needs, market requirements and their associated technical specifications/designs. Ensure that all requirements are allocated to the product design.
  • Requirements analysis and approval: Automate a requirements analysis and validation methodology for determining whether the stated requirements are unclear, incomplete, ambiguous, or contradictory and track the resolution of these issues.
  • Requirements verification: Automate requirements verification processes and seamlessly integrate testing tools into overall lifecycle management to streamline and reduce errors and oversights.
  • Requirements reuse: Manage and track the reuse and sharing of requirements across projects and products. Identify and report on the entire history of the reuse of requirements.
