Analyze and Track Change Across Projects in Real-time
Empower engineering teams to make better decisiones by enabling them to access real-time data from the impact of modifications across projects.
What is Change Management and Why it's Important
Change management is a concept that can literally be applied anywhere and everywhere. It is the application of a structured and defined process and tools in order to lead the people’s side of the change in the right and desired direction. In other words, it is a system engineering process where we establish and maintain consistency of the product’s performance, functionality, and all the physical attributes in accordance with the requirements, design, and operational data throughout the lifecycle.
Requirements change management concerns the procedures, processes, and standards that are used while managing the changes in the requirements. Requirements are ever-changing items. We must be prepared for that to happen during the development cycle. It is said that changing requirements are as certain as death and taxes. That means there will definitely be some changes in the requirements every now and then as it is not possible to specify the exact necessities at the beginning itself.
Some of the reasons of why requirements change, include:
• Changing Needs
• Changing Priorities
• Immature Technology
Automating Your Change Management Process with Visure's Version Control
Once you configure your data model on how you want to trace requirements with each item, including, testing, defects, and risk, you will be able to define elements and components across all projects within the tool.
Per each element, every time a new modification has been made, it gets saved in real time, and automatically creates a new version. Each version will be documented and saved under a version history.
Suspect Links: The important capabilities of Change Management
Every time a new version has been created, it triggers the tool to automatically create suspect links which are traced to all of the elements which have been modified.
Suspect Links tell you that something has been change, which requires team members to verify what has been change and approve it. Within Visure, you can access a suspect link cleaner to easily track, review and approve each one.
Establish End-to-End Traceability and Control
Visure enables engineering teams to gain end-to-end traceability across multiple projects by centralizing risk, tests, and requirements in a single platform.
With Visure's change management feature, you can track changes on specific requirements items that have been reused across multiple projects or sections. This will allow you to easily flag modifications that have been made, and may impact directly some tests, defects and risk factors from one project to another.
Change management and analysis is a crucial step to successfully deliver projects within budget and deadlines without sacrificing compliance.
Make Better Decisions by Involving Team Members before Applying Change with Visure's Commenting Feature
With Visure's Commenting feature, you can now involve all stakeholders and team members in every discussion before applying any changes in projects.
This will result in higher quality decisions, and increase in collaboration and productivity across the organization regarding change in requirements by any kind.
In addition, Visure's Commenting feature enables teams to lower their number of changes across projects, resulting in a decrease in cycle times and development costs.
