Transformational Technology to Manage Requirements

Managing Requirements

The rising complexity of systems across the industrial landscape is driving companies to adopt transformational technologies to manage requirements in context with total product configuration. Aras’ Requirements Engineering application is a new, next generation solution for managing requirements within a PLM platform.

Aras Requirements Engineering (RE): How to Connect it to External Authoring Tools

Connecting requirements to system models, design details, simulations, and tests facilitates a traceable validation and verification process. Requirements Engineering (RE) application enables that as part of a digital thread managed by the Aras industrial low-code platform. This demo shows how to expose externally authored requirements in RE using: ReqIF—an industry standard for exchange of requirements; DOORS—a 3rd party requirements authoring tool; Cameo—a 3rd party MBSE systems modeling tool.

Radically Simplifying Management of Requirements

The path from a stakeholder requirement, to implementation specific requirements, is a complex one. It requires an understanding the business objectives, effective reuse of the existing solutions, and design space exploration with system models, simulations, and trade studies. See how Aras Low-Code Platform enables project and engineering teams to manage the this process with formal revision control and configuration management that includes traceability to all intermediate steps and design abstractions.

Compose a Well-Formed Requirement With Ease and Consistency

Authoring well-structured requirements is key to eliminating inconsistencies that can create confusion. Managing this process using simple text becomes a herculean task that only increases the risk of inconsistency. Today’s complex products necessitate an interactive and rules driven approach that automatically ensures compliance with a given requirement type.

Aras’ Requirements Engineering application does exactly that. It also automatically maintains traceability across the product lifecycle. And it does so by coexisting and connecting with other requirement authoring tools.

Aras Requirements Engineering: The Key to Your Future Products

"Disconnected and text-based requirements can’t keep up with today’s complex and connected products in the system-of-systems context. Design process depends on a multiplicity of intelligent requirement types aligned with multiplicity of domain-specific methodologies.”

The Key to Complex Future Products: Intelligent Requirements

Lack of quality or failed projects can often be traced back to problems with requirements management. If they are unclear, incomplete, contradictory, there is a risk that the project will deliver the “false” results

Making Stuff Need Not Be This Hard

Making stuff is hard and it is getting harder. The world of technology is evolving and making it much more difficult to define, design, build, and maintain.

Making Stuff Need Not Be This Hard

Making New Stuff with New Stuff

Capturing initial stakeholder requirements and managing them with the Requirements Engineering application allows you to innovate while improving timeliness, cost control, and quality.

The decision to implement the Aras solution has paid off in record time. Ultimately, our customers benefit from this new approach. For our customers in a range of industries, products meet the highest safety requirements.
