Requirements Management


Aras VPLM with Requirements Management combines advanced requirements management functionality with enterprise PLM, providing companies that run Autodesk Vault with powerful capabilities that are easy to use for systems engineering, systems planning, development and realization.

  • Users can identify, associate, track and trace different types of requirements - including physical, functional, logical and performance requirements - and validate that the system or product satisfies the original intent
  • Global enterprises get the advanced capabilities they need to meet complex customer demands, drive product quality and minimize risks, making it an ideal solution for users of DOORS, SLATE and MKS Integrity who need to take their requirements management to the next level.
  • Enables the creation of a single, multi-discipline requirements hierarchy that enables the organization of requirements by traditional discipline or other groupings without losing their place in the overall hierarchy
  • Links requirements to specifications, parts, Bills of Material, test plans and other PLM items at different phases of the lifecycle becoming part of the overall configuration.
  • Change management workflow assures requirements stay in sync as the system or product evolves over the life cycle.
