Teamcenter Requirements Management

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.

Connecting requirements across your product lifecycle

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.

Advantages

  • Speed time-to-market from any device
  • Remove IT overhead when deploying solutions for product development
  • Increase flexibility for a distributed team
  • Protect your data from disaster within an encrypted cloud environment

Features

  • Capture, manage and leverage disparate product requirements in the same single PLM environment that you use to manage your product definitions and product configurations.
  • Document import/export mechanism for requirements capture and generation using standard Wordand Excel import/export.
  • Automatic document parsing and requirements identification.
  • Connect product requirements and program constraints to fine-grain design elements created by other Teamcenter users.
  • Define program-related constraints, including cost and scheduling controls, as well as compliance-related metrics that pertain to performance, maintain-ability, reliability, manufacturability, usability and ergonomics.
  • Integration with project management so you can consider requirements in the context of the project plan, giving you visibility to their impact on resources, cost and schedules that includes feedback from test to requirements compliance.
  • Familiar user interface that looks and acts like Windows Explorer/Outlook.
  • Short learning curves facilitated by Microsoft Office integrations that support “live” viewing/editing through Microsoft Word and Excel.
  • Multi-user group environment that enables users to view and work on requirements concurrently in a controlled way.
  • Requirements versioning/variant support.
  • Requirements-based configuration management, change processes and approval cycles.
  • “Lock-out” protections that prohibit users from accessing or modifying a requirement when that requirement is already being accessed by someone else.
