Spirateam 4.1: requirements management - what to expect

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

I have a question on the upcoming release 4.1.
What can I expect from:
- "enhanced requirements management functionality"
- requirement workflow (very likewise to incident workflow?)
and also:
is the target date of mid september valid?

a team of requirement writers is currently doubting on where to start to write the requirements :Jira or Spira.
(I would prefer Spira, but any extra "pro" that <enhanced req. mgmt> would bring, the easier my discussion will be.)

Hi Filip

In terms of the requirements management functionality in Spira v4.1, here's what you can expect:

  • Ability to categorize requirements into types (feature, use-case, etc.)
  • Ability to have customized workflows for each requirement type
    • Different fields can be made required, hidden or disabled
    • Customize the flow between statuses
  • Ability to estimate in story points instead of hours
  • Ability to have requirements organized by folder
  • Ability to associate requirements with business components
  • Ability to have use case requirements that have discrete use case steps that will be converted automatically into test case steps when appropriate
  • Additional requirement statuses
  • Ability to requirement status be triggered by changes to the test case coverage

The current date of release is December 12th.
