Optimize Development Costs and Cycle Times with Reusability
Optimize your resources, time and money by reusing components from any item within Visure, including requirements & standard compliances across multiple projects.
Define & Create Reusable Components to Enforce Traceability between Multiple Projects
Reusability is defined as the capability to reuse item components, including requirements, standards, tests and any other item within the Visure from current or past projects across multiple current or new ones.
Visure's requirements components represent groups of elements and the relationships between them, including requirements, services, tests, use cases, and guidelines.
This represents from simple non functional requirements like usability or performance, to complex product features like interfaces or standards, norms and laws that all the projects in a company need to comply with.
This is a must have feature for organizations carrying projects that belong to a family of products that share a common set of features, or variants of them.
Reuse Components within One Project in a single platform.
Visure Requirements ALM platform supports the different reuse modes allowing you to easily reuse requirement components across the same project and deal with all the notifications and propagation of updates.
• Copy and Paste: Most widely used technique. There are multiple variants of this method, such as copying and pasting in read-only mode.
• Copy and Link: An advanced evolution of the copy and paste is to be able to keep a reference from the pasted requirement to the original one. This is a much more powerful option, as it will allow us to create a branch (a diverging version with the same unique identifier) from the original requirement, but still receive updates if the original requirement is modified. This will allow your team to keep working on our own branch, or merge to the original one at any point in time.
This is an extremely efficient way of performing a change and populating it to all the ongoing projects in the company, and specially useful to deal with product variants and branches.
• Link: This mode allows to display a representation of a set of requirements from another project in read-only mode. Any changes made to the original requirements are automatically populated to the rest of the projects reusing them. This mode is specially useful when dealing with standards and norms, in which projects need not to modify them, but need to make sure they keep up to date.
• Share: This mode allows projects to share the ownership of a set of requirements, being requirements editable and automatically available to all the projects at the same time.
Optimizing Real-time Modifications Across Multiple Projects with Change Management
With Visure, traceability is supported when a Requirements Component has been modified in the Data Base, flagging all other projects that were using the modified component and may have been impacted by a specific change in the component.
This process allows your team to carefully check the change and create suspect links within the reusable components. With the Requirements Reusability feature, your process for optimizing resources and managing change across projects gets simplified.
