IBM Rational Method Composer features
Configure processes based on operational objectives
IBM® Rational® Method Composer allows you to combine multiple plug-ins to create a process configuration for your environment. Process Builder lets you create a method configuration based on operational objectives. You can browse, preview and select without knowing the details of the design and structure of the method library and its content. The Configuration editor helps you select a base method; apply plug-ins and other components; configure views; and publish your customized process.
Create content that conforms to processes
This software enables you to manage, author, evolve, measure and deploy effective processes tailored to your project needs. It provides forms-based editors for creating content that conforms to the OMG Systems and Software Process Meta-mode (SPEM 2.0). These editors process pasted HTML and Microsoft Word documentation to ensure consistent formatting of the end product.
Capture and maintain practices
This software ships with a predefined set of questions for selecting content based on operational objectives. The Authoring perspective provides re-use mechanisms to help you tailor content without changing the original content and supports multiple variants of a process with common content synchronized across variants. The Tailoring perspective provides project managers and team leads the views and functions required to customize a process while hiding information only required for authoring.
Get consistent results using proven best practices
IBM Rational Method Composer lets you use RSS feeds to generate process information for subscribers in multiple standard formats. You can export IBM Rational Team Concert™ work item templates based on Rational Method Composer work breakdown structures. The templates can create release plans, iterations plans or an ad hoc set of tasks that are repeated frequently. You can also export Microsoft Project templates based on Rational Method Composer work breakdown structures.
