Teamcenter® software’s requirements management capabilities provide your enterprise with a systematic and repeatable solution for defining, capturing, engineering, managing and leveraging product requirements. By allowing you to understand each product in terms of its evolving customer requirements and compliance issues, Teamcenter enables you to build in the voice of the customer and continuously verify conformance to requirements throughout the product lifecycle – thereby facilitating requirements-driven design, systems engineering, design-to-cost and other highly valued business initiatives.
Teamcenter enables you to capture and organize your product requirements in a shared environment that allows team members to collect, view and edit requirements from geographically dispersed and widely diverse sources using mobile devices and interfaces they’re already familiar with. Teamcenter provides “live” Microsoft Office integrations that support viewing/editing through Microsoft Word and Excel – essentially elevating standalone Office applications to multi-user applications connected to an enterprise application. The Teamcenter environment ensures that the entitled users in your enterprise are working from the same set of requirements and product assumptions – while protecting the integrity of your requirements from unauthorized access.
Teamcenter software’s ability to digitally connect your requirements, program constraints and design elements is especially crucial when your enterprise is making time-critical design decisions. Because requirements are digitally connected across all product structures such as logical, physical, manufacturing and more, Teamcenter allows you to incorporate product requirements directly into the workflow-driven processes that drive your engineering, procurement, program executionmanagement, change management, total quality and service/support initiatives.
By enabling you to understand and evaluate product requirements across every stage in your product lifecycle, Teamcenter allows you to:
- Understand what your target markets and customer wants in terms of documented expectations, preferences, standards and regulations from diverse sources.
- Supplement these requirements with quantifiable constraints that determine the success of your take-to-market programs in terms of their cost and delivery schedules, as well as their ability to satisfy established performance, ergonomic, safety, usability, reliability, maintainability, recycling/disposal and other compliance related metrics.
- Connect these requirements and constraints to fine-grain design elements that trace across the configurations and continually validate the product as it evolves across its various lifecycle states.
- Establish closed loop processes that feed information to product developers and program managers when new requirements arise, when your program constraints are in danger of being violated or when review teams need to understand the requirements related impact of proposed design changes.
