Life Cycle Management
Application Life Cycle Management
Goda Software’s Doc Sheets provides solutions to the complicated problems of application lifecycle management. Doc Sheets allows requirement definition, design, testing, and project management. You can adapt to changing customer needs quickly, effectively, and without losing focus with Doc Sheets.
Doc Sheets is widely useful for:
- Software development
- Product development
- Workflow analysis
- Strategic planning
For every organization striving to reach CMM level 2 or simply trying to improve its business, requirements management is an indispensable project management control. Organized requirements help trace the evolution of the project throughout the development life cycle and into the maintenance phase.
You will find Doc Sheets an invaluable tool for managing requirements by establishing a common understanding among the project stakeholders about the requirements addressed by your project. The program provides team members with a clear statement of requirements and facilitates effective communication among stakeholders of the system.
Doc Sheets allows the classification of various requirements and enables speedy unique requirement identification through automatic requirement tag generation. It also allows user-defined requirement numbering. Users can share and trace requirements across projects and import requirements from existing documents from various formats (doc, HTML, and text). With just a few mouse clicks, you can generate an entire document from requirements in the database using Doc Sheets’s documents generation capability.
Doc Sheets tracks and avoids losing the requirements that are the driving force behind any project, thereby reducing project cost overruns and schedule delays attributed to poorly identified or un-addressed requirements. It also helps to detect requirement errors, which avoids unnecessary costs associated with implementing the wrong requirements.
Traceability & Change Management
As technology progresses, so does the customer’s expectation for bug-free, fully functional software and systems. This expectation for a requirements-exact product has given rise to a new understanding of the importance of software testing as a critical pre-release activity.
With Doc Sheets, users can easily link test cases to user and system requirements. Doc Sheets’s powerful Traceability feature allows the user to identify the impact of requirement changes on test cases quickly. You can generate data on and examine the impact of change on lower-level requirements succeeding changes in higher-level requirements. You can run different traceability reports, which allow you to evaluate the change from different perspectives; business, application, and global. You can effectively validate your systems.
Customization to Your Needs
Generally speaking, our best work is usually accomplished when we can work according to our own preferences and needs. That vision is incorporated into every version of Doc Sheets.
For example, this tool enables users to specify attributes and customize views, which is useful for defining artifacts. Doc Sheets provides a standard template that defines views for requirements, user stories, backlog, test cases, bugs, issues, releases, and more. The template can be customized and saved as a new template for reusing across projects. There are no restrictions on configuration.
With Doc Sheets, users may also define custom prefixes for artifacts. For example, You can use REQ as a prefix for requirements and TST for test cases.
In addition, users may customize all reports and documents per business and reporting needs and save all customized settings while controlling access with customizable user groups.
Project Control and Collaboration
it is important to work in a secure environment; Doc Sheets allows project managers to control user access (and set read/write/no-access privileges) to different objects. Access control prevents any unauthorized persons from accessing the program and make changes that may hinder its success.
Doc Sheets is scalable and affordable and can be easily deployed to global and locally dispersed teams. Multiple users can work on the same or different projects concurrently without conflict.
Whether you use an Agile or non-Agile process, with Doc Sheets, you can manage releases along with other project artifacts. You can also share requirements among different releases. Doc Sheets’s release management provides estimation and tasks management that allows clients to deliver products on time and budget.
Doc Sheets’s integrated functions enable a seamless flow of development, testing, releases, and systems maintenance. Moreover, it’s easy to assess the impact of requirements and other artifact changes on releases.
Release managers can schedule and manage releases effectively and efficiently, with information about all project-related artifacts at their fingertips.
Manage Change Automatically
Manage change effectively by using integrated change and configuration management tools that include user access control, automatic history tracking, artifact locking, artifact deactivation, and the automatic creation of project baselines that support incremental development.
