Gain Full End-to-End Traceability across Risk, Requirements and Tests
Simplify your requirements, risk, and testing management process throughout complex systems development with Visure's requirements traceability.
What it is and why it's important?
Simply put, traceability is the ability for any engineer to trace upstream or downstream any information regarding requirements. Across industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, supply chain, and software development, traceability ensures that final deliverables don’t stray too far away from original requirements.
The term itself is a blend of two words—trace and ability—and it underpins three critical business management processes: quality management (which enables organizations to hit quality targets/meet customer expectations), change management (which tracks changes to product during development), and risk management (which tracks and verifies vulnerabilities to product integrity).
Traceability is now more important than ever due to various government regulations and the increased pressure on organizations across industries to improve product quality and adhere to strict safety and security standards.
Traceability provides several important benefits that make it well worth the extra effort. By providing a complete, trustworthy record of all past activity, it helps investigate and troubleshoot issues during events such as recalls, allowing stakeholders to locate the source of the problem. The data generated by traceability can be used to improve critical business processes and address performance issues related to lead times, transportation costs, and inventory management, among other things.
Configure Traceability through Data Models
In order to gain end-to-end traceability and enforce traceability throughout the entire organization, we connect Visure through your Data Model.
This will enable your team to create anything in the Data Model and gain full traceability. This process is completely customized based on your specific needs, and once done you'll be able to trace any specific item, such as requirements, defects, tests, risks and even components from other projects to apply reusability on any of them.
Customize Centralize Your Requirements Traceability Process in one place.
Most global organizations come from managing and tracing their requirements manually, making it error and risk prone to easily manage risk and tests.
With Visure, you'll be able to create requirements directly from the tool or import and export them from MS Office Word and Excel.
Once requirements have been listed within the tool and the data models configured, you'll be able to create and customize your traceability process. Your traceability process can be customized between Visure and other bio-directional and automatic integrations, such as Jira or UML Modeling tools.
Within one single platform, you'll be able to gain traceability from source code to requirements and functionality, trace components across projects or change history and safety requirements created to mitigate specific high risk factors. (Just to name a few traceability cases.)
With Visure's modern requirements alm platform, you'll be able to access in real-time a traceability dashboard to see the percentage of items being or not being traced. This will allow you to enforce traceability at any level, from High-level customer requirements to software, hardware and mechanical requirements, and also risks and testings.
This end-to-end traceability results in speed to market, and lowering both validations and development costs.
Increase Productivity, Collaboration and Alignment
Create alignment between teams by centralizing, managing and tracing requirements, risk and testing in one single platform.
Productivity and collaboration increase is inevitable, especially when traceability can be performed at any level such as reusability of components & requirements, and standard compliance across projects.
Import Traceability from Tools Your Team Already Has in Place.
Do you have traceability already in place within Jira, legacy tools such as Doors, or manually within Excel?
If so, you can import them seamlessly to Visure by using or bio-directional and automatic integrations or through data exchange ReqIF.
Customize and Generate Reports for Compliance
End-to-end traceability is essential for complex systems development, but even more to achieve compliance stress-free and avoid project failures.
With Visure, you'll be able to customize your traceability and reporting process. This will allow you to generate reports that shows the traceability for each requirement, risk, tests and defects. Within the tool, you'll have access to an impact analysis view and traceability matrix generated, along with real time indicators in a traceability dashboard.
For stakeholder and compliance audits, you'll be able to export reports and any documentation in any types of format, such as PDF, MS Office, etc.
