software can help you achieve yourrequirements management goals by enabling your teams to focus onbuilding what your business and customers really need, not waste timeand effort on unnecessary/manual tasks and rework.Rational DOORS software allows you to capture, trace, analyze andmanage changes to information and demonstrate compliance to regula-tions and standards. Rational DOORS software has proven itself onsome of the most challenging projects and helped organizationsstandardize and manage their requirements process more efficiently.
Intuitive, scalable requirements management
Successful management of requirements starts by documenting them ina way that’s easy to interpret and navigate. The hierarchical organiza-tion of requirements in the Rational DOORS interface helps make it easier to locate information within the database. An easily accessibledocument-style list of requirements shows each individual requirement in context, while a convenient navigation tree reveals the structure of the information set. A tabular view of the requirements helps you view and assign additional information against them within an unlimitednumber of your own attributes.

Requirements documented in IBMRational DOORS
Comprehensive traceability
Requirements traceability is key to demonstrating confor-mance and compliance, and facilitating impact analysis of requirement changes. Traceability links within RationalDOORS software can be easily traversed—simply click onthe link indicator displayed beside a requirement, select thelink you want to follow, and the Rational DOORS applicationcan traverse the link to the related requirement.Creating links can be as easy as dragging and droppingbetween two requirements. A new link can be created fromthe source to the target requirement with outgoing andincoming link indicators displayed beside the relevant requirements. With Rational DOORS software, you can create filters toanalyze requirements and see that traceability is complete.For example, using a filter, you can help quickly identify userrequirements that are not linked to system requirements—these represent customer needs that are not satisfied by thetechnical specification. The Rational DOORS solution alsosupports external links: Requirements can be associated withinformation outside of the Rational DOORS environment.For instance, dragging a link from a requirement in theRational DOORS software into a word processing document can create a functional link to the requirement.

Change management and impactanalysis
Requirements change. But change should be controlledbecause it can impact the project, resulting in additionaldemands on resources, time and budget. Rational DOORS isintegrated with Rational solutions for collaboration andchange management to provide support for a change controlprocess tailored to the needs of your organization.If you require a simpler, predefined requirements changecontrol process, Rational DOORS software also providesout-of-the-box change management capability. Requirementschanges may impact linked requirements, designs and tests. The Rational DOORS solution can provide automatic proac-tive notification of such changes by graphically indicating that links to changed objects require investigation, supportingthorough impact analysis.
Collaborative requirements managementenvironment
Rational DOORS software allows stakeholders from many disciplines to contribute to the requirements process.Stakeholders are involved with requirements capture, analy-sis, review and impact analysis for project changes.Requirements management is a discipline that lives through-out a project lifetime and DOORS software offers a key capability to allow stakeholders to manage an audit trail fromdevelopment back to the requirements that are being met. The DOORS platform also has a web interface(IBMRational DOORS Web Access) for users who needinstant access to requirements information without the needto perform local installations of software. For example, testerscan quickly review and edit requirement attributes fromthe web to indicate that particular requirements havebeen verified. The Rational DOORS application also supports theRequirements Interchange Format (RIF) enabling suppliersand development partners to be directly involved in thedevelopment process by contributing entire requirementsdocuments, specific sections or attributes which are tracedback to central requirements. RIF support helps you integratesuppliers into the development process more efficiently andreduce the risk of losing critical information.IBMRational DOORS Analyst Add On software provides aneasy-to-learn, UML-based requirements modeling capability inside the DOORS solution. Creating models within thecontext of requirements helps analysts clarify requirementsbetter and allows system architects and software developersto save time by reusing the same models later in thedevelopment process.Rational DOORS software provides support for the OpenServices Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) specifications forrequirements management and change management services. This provides an open way for both IBMand third party tools to interface with Rational DOORS, enabling require-ments management to be integrated throughout the systemsand software development life cycle.
How it works
IBMRational DOORS software is designed to be a scalable,collaborative, client-server database application. Throughpurpose-built, proprietary database technology, RationalDOORS software can help you manage millions of objects(requirements and other related project artifacts) and thetraceability links between them. The application can also beextended to provide additional project- or company-specificcapabilities through the IBMRational DOORS eXtensionLanguage (DXL).
