DOORS Next Generation is different
Example project: Modern requirements templates
Migration does not only mean ‚migrate as is‘. On the contrary! The technological opportunities of the new environment must be utilized in order to modernize your development processes. In a pilot project we have migrated an existing requirement specification template of DOORS Classic to DOORS Next Generation. We have developed a modern template technique that utilizes the artifact orientation of DOORS Next Generation. For example, we propose an artifact module type ‚vehicle function‘. Then, each vehicle function instance is maintained in a single module. Via traceability, specification documents now are ‚only‘ containers, which have incoming trace-links from the artifact instances. This promotes the reuse of specification artifacts in various specifications. In order to improve the applicability of our specification-brick-technique, we are developing a plugin which extends DNG.
