  • Focal Point Doors Integration

    1. 1. Connecting the Product Development Process – Focal Point & DOORS
    2. 2. Top reasons why products fail Source: Aberdeen Group , August 2006
    3. 3. How many of you would NOT like to see your requirements like this? You may have to make crucial decisions based on something like this...
    4. 4. Focal Point enables you to <ul><li>Plan the right product with the right features to be developed at the right time and the right cost </li></ul><ul><li>Optimize the revenue, value to the customer and cost of development </li></ul><ul><li>Trade-off between conflicting objectives such as meeting as many requirements as possible, implementing everything by tomorrow and at no cost. What trade-off is the best for all stakeholders? </li></ul><ul><li>Do the right things in the right order </li></ul>
    5. 5. Enabling collaboration between Focal Point users and DOORS users Requirements Management in DOORS DOORS project DOORS project DOORS project Decision support in Focal Point Collect Analyze Plan Product management in Focal Point Manage Prioritize Monitor
    6. 6. How does Focal Point support Product Management? <ul><li>Key PM activities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Collect </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Manage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Analyze </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Prioritize </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plan </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor </li></ul></ul>

    12. 12. Requirements flow from Focal Point to DOORS – the hourglass model Product Management feeds Requirements Management Focal Point DOORS Collect, Analyze from a business perspective, Prioritize, Plan Analyze from a technical perspective, Decompose and allocate, Formalize, Trace Verify Less formal information “ WHAT-oriented” - Decide Helps earn money Formalized information “ HOW-oriented” - Execute Helps save money
    13. 13. Scenario 1: Requirements flow from Focal Point to DOORS <ul><li>Development starts </li></ul><ul><li>Progress is reported via implementation status attribute </li></ul><ul><li>Progress is monitored via implementation status attribute </li></ul><ul><li>The estimate is used with prioritizations to plan release content. </li></ul><ul><li>Status indicates when ready to implement </li></ul><ul><li>Analyzes and estimates the cost. </li></ul><ul><li>Enters a cost value in the DOORS attribute. </li></ul><ul><li>Sets status to ”Analyzed” </li></ul><ul><li>Collects requirements from customers. </li></ul><ul><li>Validates and requests cost estimation. </li></ul><ul><li>Requirements appear in a ”DOORS view” and gets synchronized to a DOORS module </li></ul>Engineering Business
    14. 14. Enabling collaboration between Focal Point users and DOORS users Requirements Management in DOORS DOORS project DOORS project DOORS project Decision support in Focal Point Collect Analyze Plan Product management in Focal Point Manage Prioritize Monitor
    15. 15. Prioritization of requirements in DOORS <ul><li>Do you have more requirements than time and resources to implement? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you need to optimize stakeholder value while reducing cost of development? </li></ul><ul><li>Focal Point has unique mechanisms for prioritizing the requirements and visualize the results in a number of charts </li></ul><ul><li>Leverage your investment in DOORS with the unique decision support features of Focal Point </li></ul>
    16. 16. Scenario 2: Prioritization of requirements <ul><li>The ranking attribute(s) appear on the DOORS side and can be used for filtering, sorting etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Log in and prioritize the elements </li></ul><ul><li>Select ”Rank the elements” to store priority rank in an attribute. </li></ul><ul><li>Select requirements that shall be prioritized </li></ul><ul><li>Set ”To be prioritized” to True </li></ul>In Focal Point In DOORS
    17. 17. How does it work? <ul><li>Based on the new Telelogic Synchronization Framework </li></ul><ul><li>Reads XML configuration files </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What views should be synchronized? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What attributes? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sync direction? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sync frequency? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Last sync performed? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How to deal with deletion? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Performs sync in background </li></ul>Synchronization Framework XML Focal Point Web Services DOORS DXL
    18. 18. The Combined Solution of Focal Point and DOORS <ul><li>Focal Point is for doing the right things , DOORS is for doing things right </li></ul><ul><li>Together, Focal Point and DOORS provide the ultimate solution for requirements management taking care of both business and engineering perspectives </li></ul><ul><li>Focal Point helps you make money , DOORS helps you save money </li></ul><ul><li>Telelogic uniquely supports a focus on requirements throughout the product development process </li></ul>
