Product success hinges primarily on how well the product addresses the needs of the marketplace. Requirements must drive design and development decisions throughout the product development lifecycle. And product testing must be done against specified requirements to make sure you’re not just delivering a product that works, but also the product that you set out to build.
IBM Solutions for Requirements Engineering
IBM offers a requirements engineering solution that enables you to manage requirements throughout the entire product lifecycle. From ideas, requirements and feature definitions, product and system specifications and models to mechanical, electric and embedded software implementation, testing and maintenance, the IBM solution can help you deliver high-quality products that meet your customers’ needs.
The solution is built around IBM Rational® DOORS® software, a requirements management application that provides a collaborative environment for managing requirements and traceability throughout the product lifecycle. In order to drive product development from requirements, Rational DOORS is integrated with many IBM and 3rd party systems engineering and product data management solutions.
