The effective management of requirements and validation practices plays a crucial role in the development and engineering of complex products and systems. These practices are essential in reducing the risk involved and ensuring customer satisfaction.
By implementing requirements management and validation, teams can precisely outline, describe, authenticate, and validate all aspects of the product. This process enables a complete traceability, built-in change and configuration management, and standards-based collaboration across teams, vendors, and supply chains.
Most manufacturers typically manage requirements separately using tools like Microsoft Word, Excel, and email. This approach can hinder the ability to keep up with the increasing rate of change, the growing number of product variants, and the added complexity of regulatory requirements. As a result, product rework may be required, leading to higher costs and decreased predictability in product release cycles.
To overcome these challenges, organizations turn to requirements management and validation solutions to create compliant and innovative products that meet cost, quality, and time-to-market objectives. With PTC Windchill, it is possible to centrally manage evolving requirements and testing resources. Data sharing and traceability are automated, enabling cross-functional collaboration across various applications and throughout the product lifecycle
The requirements management and validation solution offered by PTC facilitates precise and traceable documentation. This allows for secure and cross-functional collaboration and concurrent development among all teams involved, as well as with the supply chain. By having a comprehensive view of evolving requirements, stakeholders can effectively manage test sessions, evaluate the effects of potential changes, and verify test results against requirements to improve the quality and compliance of the product. Furthermore, requirements can be easily imported and exported using the ReqIF file format, which offers flexible configuration and mapping choices for synchronizing with supported applications.
