ReqSuite® Requirements Manager (RM)

Project configurations form the foundation for working on projects and their contents, because they define the relationship between content categories and provide the basis for generating work instructions for the systematic processing of work steps by responsible users in ReqSuite®.

The modeling and specification of individual project configurations is done primarily with the help of the ReqSuite® configuration designer (short Designer) integrated in the WebApp, which is supplemented by the use of MS Word® for the definition of document templates. The Designer itself is invoked from the project template management according to the administration function “Develop project template details” and looks exemplary as shown in Figure 1. In the main display area of the designer two views can be toggled between via correspondingly named tabs, one for the development of “categories” along with help structures and one for the definition and visualization of “relations” between these categories.

The entire configuration design process includes not only the introductory modeling of content types and help structures, followed by model refinement and definition of content templates, but also the final document definition required for the composition.

Note: To minimize the general risk of error when using ReqSuite®, no special characters should be used throughout the configuration process, especially when defining names and identifiers.
