Manage, track and cross-reference requirements throughout product development
Insufficient visibility into requirements increases the chance of product failure in the marketplace. Usually that's because requirements are either not well connected with product design data, or not easily accessible by the entire team. This disconnect makes it difficult to determine: whether requirements are satisfied by underlying product designs; how they will impact requirements; or how requirement changes impact designs, schedule and cost.
Integrity Requirements Management works with Windchill PDMLink to manage product software and hardware requirements, including change control and associating requirements with specific product structures and design content. With bi-directional traceability between customer needs, market requirements and the underlying technical requirements, you can ensure that customer and market requirements are satisfied by designs, and properly verified during development.
