When a new project is started the majority of the time business needs (or requirements) are captured and defined through text. Rational DOORS Next Generation provides a complete Web based environment for documenting rich text project information providing your team all the typical controls that you would expect in a word processor but with the added benefit of a shared team experience. Rational DOORS Next Generation gives your team members a great way to capture their information using standard templates and a project wide glossary to help unify development teams around a common vocabulary.
Features – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Features to drive your project forward
Capture and Organize Requirements – Overview – Rational Doors Next Generation: Business needs come in many different forms, formats and language. Bringing them all together in a single place, removing redundancy, and connecting interrelated content is the first step to requirements definition and management. Rational DOORS Next Generation is IBM’s next generation Web based team environment to capture your business needs, diagrams, use cases, design, storyboards, and other critical project information that will help drive your business.
Collaboration and Review – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Each stakeholder in a project may be interested in different information (e.g. defect backlog, current tasks, or release schedule). Rational DOORS Next Generation allows you to create custom a dashboard with multiple pages, each displaying a customizable view, of a given project, to quickly investigate the desired information at any time. Each page contains custom viewlets, each with a specific purpose.
Visually Define – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Do you or your employees spend too much time wondering if all necessary business requirements were considered in order to complete a task? Are you sure you didn’t miss anything? It can be difficult to keep every team member on the same page with the complex and ever-evolving business processes that are necessary for fast-moving companies to stay ahead of the competition.
Baseline and Audit History – Rational DOORS Next Generation: As a new project is started and progresses forward many of requirements you define and capture will change, be added to, or sometimes removed through the course of development. Rational DOORS Next Generation provides the functionality to help track requirements information change so that you can understand what has taken place throughout that process.
Reports – Rational DOORS Next Generation: The requirement metrics provide an analytics view of the data. They represent processed data and are based on the operational data available from the repository, which is loaded into the data warehouse and then aggregated into measures based on some interpretation. Measures can be counts or sums of numeric data, such as the sum of all weight points of test case execution records. They allow the user to evaluate, report on and to improve the project performance.
Capture Administration – Rational DOORS Next Generation: IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation shares administration services with all applications that are on the same Jazz Team Server. Those applications provide capabilities for the activities that span a project’s lifecycle, such as quality management and change and configuration management. Because administration services are shared with the applications on one Jazz Team Server, teams save time and effort. The shared administration services include services for projects areas, users, and licensing.
Traceability – Rational DOORS Next Generation: Capturing your stakeholder and user requirements in Rational DOORS Next Generation is only the first step in realizing your project. As your project progresses and evolves, these initial requirements give rise to other requirements which elaborate, satisfy, and verify them. The result is a web of interdependent artifacts and relationships which represent the nature of the dependencies between these artifacts. Navigating and understanding this web of information is critical to the success of your project.

First published by the Design Manager Team on Jazz.net
Build basis: Rhapsody Design Manager 6.0.3
The Rational Rhapsody Simulink and Documentation domains are not supported in this technical preview. You cannot report on data from these domains.
The rich hover feature does not work for Design Management (DM) artifacts. When you hover over a DM artifact in a report, no additional information is provided.
When you generate data from a Rational Rhapsody Design Manager project, and you use the Enable Global Index (LQE) for project resources from all conf
In Report Builder, configuration managed projects are shown in the Limit the scope section only if the data source is Lifecycle Query Engine(LQE) scoped by a configuration.

Getting started with reporting by using Lifecycle Query Engine data sources in version 6.0.3: You can use the Report Builder in the Jazz Reporting Service to create and run reports about artifacts across projects or versioned data in configurations. Using indexed data from the Lifecycle Query Engine (LQE) data sources, you can, for example: Create a multi-project report that shows test cases, the requirements that they validate, and related defects. You can include designs from Design Manager by editing the SPARQL query in the Advanced section of Report Builder. Run this report, scoping the results by choosing a configuration (stream or baseline). Learn how to set up your environment and understand some of the limitations when you use either the LQE or LQE using Configurations data source. Consider the limitations described here before you use LQE data sources for production reports. If you are interested only in document-style reports, you can export Report Builder reports as Rational Publishing Engine templates to make document authoring easier. [Read more at Jazz.net...]

Looking for information to help you prepare for the migration of your existing Rhapsody projects to another version? If so, then you may want to first review the relevant migration issue sections in the Migr
When reviewing the document, it is best to go through the lists in ascending product version order. For example, if you have Rational Rhapsody 220.127.116.11 and are migrating to version 8.0.3, review the migration issues for 18.104.22.168 on the 7.6 tab and then all the migration issues on the 8.0 tab up to and including version 8.0.3.
Getting started with components in the RM and QM applications - In IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation (RM application) and IBM Rational Quality Manager (QM application), in projects that are enabled for configuration management, you can now create components to manage versions of data at a finer granularity than whole project areas. You might see components referred to as "fine-grained components." Instead of working with all the artifacts from the project in one stream (for example, a physical piece called a Handheld Meter Reader), you can create a component to represent a smaller collection of artifacts (for example, a smaller physical piece such as a Sensor in the handheld meter reader). Components are supported only in projects that have configuration management capabilities enabled.
Note: This feature is a technology preview and is not supported for use in a production environment. You should read and understand the key limitations that are listed in the
