Requirements Management and Validation

Specify, define, verify, and validate requirements across the product lifecycle

PLM starts with requirements management

Effective requirements and validation practices are more than just an integral part of developing and engineering complex products and systems. They are vital to mitigating risk and ensuring customer satisfaction.

With requirements management and validation you enable teams to specify, define, verify, and validate every aspect of the product. It offers end-to-end traceability, built-in change and configuration management, and standards-based collaboration across teams, vendors, and supply chains.

Empower teams to collaborate and build complex products

For most manufacturers, requirements are typically managed in independent systems, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and email. This makes it difficult to keep pace with the velocity of change, ever-growing number of product variants, and added rigor of overlapping regulatory requirements. All too often the result is wasteful product rework that increases costs and undermines the predictability of product release cycles.

To address these challenges, organizations rely on requirements management and validation solutions to deliver compliant, innovative products that meet critical cost, quality, and time-to-market goals. With PTC, you can centrally manage evolving requirements and test assets. The traceability and sharing of data become automated, enabling cross-functional collaboration across applications and throughout the product lifecycle.

Requirements management: Getting it right the first time

PTC’s requirements management and validation solution provides detailed, auditable traceability. This enables safe, cross-functional collaboration and parallel development across all teams involved and the supply chain. With holistic visibility into evolving requirements, stakeholders can easily manage test sessions, determine the impact of proposed changes, and verify test results against requirements for improved product quality and compliance. Requirements can also be imported/exported in the ReqIF file format, with flexible configuration and mapping options for synchronization across supported applications.
