Engineering requirements is important. Requirements establish the items that customers will purchase, yet merely managing requirements is insufficient. Engineering requirements by tying them to the product lifecycle ensures that everyone makes product decisions based on the proper, configured set of needs.
Teamcenter® product lifecycle management (PLM) gathers requirements and assigns them to various downstream functions/features/product architectures – all while producing reports, documentation, and dashboards to help manage the requirements process. Microsoft® Office products such as Microsoft Word and Excel® can be used to generate, examine, and update requirements. Teamcenter integrates product needs to programme plans and verifies and validates (V&V) requirements using the appropriate tests, evidence, and history. This V&V feedback loop for requirements engineering offers lessons learned and pushes compliance into product development so you can “start integrated, remain integrated” across the full product lifecycle, ensuring you deliver the correct goods to your customers.
