  3. 3. Why Manage Requirements? Requirements are  the voice of your customer  the building blocks of your products  verification that you are building what you intended to build  valuable descriptions of your design and quality goals  YOUR MOST IMPORTANT IP ASSET Without requirements  how do you know your product meets your customers’ needs?  how do you verify you didn’t miss something important?  YOU’RE JUST GUESSINGCopyright © 2012 Aras.

  4. 4. Key Elements of RM Validation: are we building the correct product?  Have we listened to our customers, and captured their needs?  Are we building what’s ideal for the market? Traceability: are we building the product correctly?  Have we forgotten anything?  Are my products/parts/documents satisfying my requirements? Version Control: are we still building the correct product?  Close the loop – validate with our customers that we are meeting their needs  See how our requirements have historically evolvedCopyright © 2012 Aras.

  5. 5. Why build RM into PLM? Requirements are the backbone of your product development efforts  Why track the “why” separate from the “who”, “what”, …? Requirements apply across the entire product lifecycle Changes in requirements directly impact everything else you do in PLM Integrating separate RM and PLM systems is difficult  Virtually impossible to achieve the same level of interactivity It’s a natural fit  Workflow, change control, permissions, life cycles, etc. can all be extended to include requirementsCopyright © 2012 Aras.
