I have some
question concerning the requirements management tools of SpiraTeam.
question is the ability to link requirements to different features, such as
customer specifications, mechanical parts and assemblies, mechanical and
electronic BOMs etc. What kind of links does the software support?
I have a requirement and I use a certain COTS product or a specially designed
mechanism to satisfy it. Can I link them? I suppose I can, the question is to
what extent? In other words, can I link different documents, such as vendor
specs, pictures, CAD models etc.?
More questions concerning the requirements:
1. Are there
any structured types of requirements already built in the software, such as functional,
non-functional, performance, design etc. requirements? Is it possible to define
new types of requirements?
2. Is it
possible to define a requirement as a sub-requirement, such as derived or
refining requirements of a main requirement? The same question is about the
original customer requirements, can I trace back to them?
3. Are there
any special fields for quantitative requirements where I assign a number and
its unit to a certain requirement? For example “the mass should be no more than
1 kg”. Are there two different columns available, one for the number (1) and
the other for its unit (kg)?
4. Does the
software allow defining constraints as opposed to requirements?
