Advantages for enterprises and employees

  • Automatically monitor and document requirement lifecycles
  • Clearly display relationships between requirements in the virtual product model
  • Directly monitor the degree of fulfillment and corrective measures
  • Implement systems engineering reliably according to the V-model and other methods

Automatically monitor and document requirement lifecycles

Requirements Engineering, a standard component of the CONTACT Elements platform, allows you to manage large requirement portfolios with ease. Record and monitor new requirements and changes during the development process as efficiently as possible. The integrated audit trail documents all changes automatically and allows them to be traced in detail.

Clearly display relationships between requirements in the virtual product model

Semantic Links enables you to easily link requirements to each other and to other objects such as components or tasks. The resulting link graphvisualizes these interrelations and helps you recognize and evaluate the impact of changes in advance. Filters and navigation functions help keep track of complex projects in particular.

Monitor the degree of fulfillment and take corrective action

CONTACT Requirements Engineering allows you to plan and monitor requirements and the degree to which they are fulfilled, both as objects in their own right and in conjunction with tasks from the project schedule. Requirements that have been fulfilled can be recorded either manually or automatically – for example the proportion of certain materials for compliance with RoHS. Clearly structured charts indicate the degree to which requirements have been fulfilled. If there are any significant discrepancies, countermeasures can be taken and traced without any need for separate additional tools.

Provide practice-oriented support for systems engineering

Requirements Engineering supports development in accordance with the enhanced V model. End-to-end, requirements-driven development is a crucial lever for systems engineering (SE) and model-based systems engineering (MBSE). The result is transparency, traceability, compliance and reliably achieved objectives throughout the entire development process and across the individual disciplines such as mechanical engineering, E/E and software.

The easier way from requirements to product

Increasing numbers of variants, ever-faster changes, shorter product lifecycles and the growing proportion of software are giving rise to a continual increase in product complexity. In view of the large number of product requirements and the mutual dependencies between the components, systematic requirements management is crucial. With CONTACT Requirements, you can get to grips with even complex requirements: from reading out customer specifications to collaborative implementation and verification through to traceability and change control. Use requirements as a compass for product development and thus master the product lifecycle.
