Features and benefits of IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation Version 4.0.1: Part 2. The rich client and importing requirements

This second video of two explores the Rational DOORS Next Generation rich client, one of the two clients licensed with Rational DOORS. The focus is on the requirements management features from the perspective of complex systems engineering, in particular the ability of the rich client to open multiple modules when managing a hierarchy of requirement document levels and their associated traceability.

Demo details

This second of two related videos explores the IBM® Rational® DOORS® Next Generation rich client, one of the two clients licensed with DOORS. Although its Rational Jazz™ architecture is shared with IBM® Rational® Requirements Composer, this video explores the requirements management features from the perspective of complex systems engineering, in particular the ability of the rich client to open multiple modules when managing a hierarchy of requirement document levels and their associated traceability. Narrator and IBM Senior Applications Engineer Fraser Chadburn starts by using the import wizard to create a module based on an external document. He touches on the use of roles to control user permissions, conveying artifacts types through a project template, and further use of glossary terms to improve clarity of requirement definitions. After showing how to import the requirements, he switches to the rich client to highlight how it is similar to the Rational DOORS Version 9 client. He demonstrates several features, including opening multiple modules in different windows and the use of drag and drop in the rich client to establish traceability. To highlight how all requirement artifacts have unique URLs, he then generates basic documents from the data, which include navigable URLs and the comments about the rationales for decisions.
