In your business, product requirements are likely created in different places using a variety of tools. In addition to supporting a migration strategy for getting those requirements into PLM, Teamcenter now offers a new solution for the import and exchange of requirements: Requirements Integrator.
Why the Requirements Integrator
With the Requirements Integrator, Teamcenter can now import and exchange data with DOORS or RIF/ReqIF (requirements interchange format). You can use your preferred tool with Teamcenter, and the benefits of requirements integration are clear:
Accurate and consistent requirements exchange with customers or suppliers (essential in a typical OEM/supplier relationship)
Able to find and maintain requirements in a single source
Comprehensive import and export capability with multiple tools/formats
Establish and re-use consistent import/export templates.
Import and exchange product requirements
The Requirements Integrator enables you to capture requirements and store them in Teamcenter so they can be managed, shared and linked to other parts of the product. You can exchange requirements with external tools using controlled Teamcenter workflows to help ensure your entire team has an accurate set of requirements.
Once the requirements are in Teamcenter, you can then accurately trace and intelligently assess the impact of requirements changes on physical implementation ... to help verify that all requirements are met, regardless of their source.
Lastly, you can establish and re-use consistent import/exchange templates across the entire enterprise.
