ReqSuite® Requirements Manager (RM)

You can use the workflow modeler to monitor and visualize the states in which your requirements are located. Left-click on “Create workflow” (plus symbol) to create a new workflow. In addition, you can edit it (pen symbol) or delete it (trash can symbol) (see Figure 1).

Figure 1. Manage Workflows
  • States: By clicking on “Add…” you can define a state in the created workflow, this can optionally be defined as a defined start or end state via checkboxes. It is also possible to use checkboxes to protect elements in this state from being written to and exported, and to prevent them from being included in a baseline.
  • Transitions: You can assign transitions or dependencies to the states. By left-clicking on “New transition…” you can create a new state that must always have a source and target state. Previously defined start and end states are highlighted separately in the displayed state table. With a left click on Workflow Preview, the created states are displayed visually with their respective dependencies and can be freely moved and displayed (see Figure 2).
