Managing requirements across Analysis and Design phases using System Architect & DOORS

White paper


This document describes why requirements need to be tracked and also explains how tracking can be setup and managed.


The IBM Rational System Architect DOORS integration helps users create abstract views in System Architect based on the user requirements in IBM Rational DOORS. Having this integration will enable users to synchronize the model with the ever changing requirements. This document can be used as a reference for users who would like to map their requirements captured in DOORS to a modeling tool Rational System Architect. Also, there would be an information flow between DOORS to System Architect and vice-versa.

Using the document provided, users can map the requirements in DOORS to the System Architect project encyclopedia and vice versa. As a summary, this document can prove effective as a start point for new users who are in the process of exploring this integration and its benefits.
