Flexible Specification & Document Generation
Automatic Document Import
You can automatically import existing documents into Doc Sheets while keeping the layout of the content.
Automatic Document Generation
Automatically generate specification documents with a table of contents (TOC).
Use any Specification Method
Doc Sheets supports both Agile and non-Agile methods of requirements specification. User stories, use cases, and hierarchical requirements lists can be used to specify systems. You can create detailed or derived requirements specifications with an unlimited depth of parent-child relationships. The hierarchical structure is automatically reflected in the document output.
Users can define their own prefixes for the identification of different requirements types. For example, functional requirements might use FR as a prefix, whereas user requirements might use UR.
Project stakeholders can easily collaborate on requirements specifications without geographical location constraints. It is easy to navigate requirements using the hierarchies or advanced reusable filters and searches with text keywords and IDs.
Doc Sheets allows an unlimited number of user-defined attributes (like priority, status) with properties to implement required fields, audit attribute changes, track the reason for forced attribute value changes, and flag records as suspects when the attribute value changes.
Any requirement in Doc Sheets can be attached to files or documents, which can be stored and shared with team members in a fully featured document/file management system.
Users can easily create list reports by using custom filters, drag-and-drop grouping, and multi-column sorting. The reports may be exported or printed in customizable PDF formats.
Doc Sheets allows users to view subsets of requirements using customizable, reusable filters. In addition, multi-column sorting, drag-and-drop grouping may be used for analysis and reporting. The requirements lists can be displayed in a grid can also be exported to Excel.
Because requirements interact with every other phase of the software and systems development process, tracing the relationships between requirements and other project components is essential for effective requirements engineering and project success.
Doc Sheets provides total lifecycle traceability of requirements from inception to system maintenance. Requirements can be linked in any arbitrary fashion to other items (requirements, test scripts, test steps, etc.); files (documents, code fragments, etc.); or diagrams. For example, user requirements can be linked to functional requirements and, in turn, to test steps. The impact of requirements changes can be readily assessed on the overall system.
Doc Sheets is the only tool on the market to provide the following unique traceability features:
- Multi-level / bi-directional traceability (forward and backward traceability).
- Link types for managing relationships.
- Direct and indirect impact-of-change reporting.
- Matrix view for complete filtering and analysis for generating trace and gap reports.
- Exporting/ printing for gap, impact, and trace analysis reports.
Doc Sheets includes graphs and grid summary calculations for requirements metrics. Requirements can also be exported as Excel files for further analysis.
Multi-Project and Multi-Product Support
Doc Sheets’ project tree structure is completely flexible for concurrently managing requirements for single or multiple products. We can also use multiple projects for multiple products. Users may switch between multiple projects using a single user name and password.
Interface with Other Tools
Doc Sheets provides powerful export and import utilities for round trip data exchange with various files, tools, and databases. For instance, users can use JIRA, XML, XLS, Text (tab, comma, etc.), or HTML formats to import and export data automatically from various tools. Doc Sheets also allows direct import of data from Excel spreadsheets.
Requirements Changes and Baselines
Doc Sheets automatically maintains all versions of entered requirements and changes, making it easy to revert to any version of a particular requirement with a single click. The change management feature also allows users to generate a requirements change-history report.
Built-in baselining enables users to put requirements into multiple baselines, and for baselining project artifacts that include requirements, design elements, repository files, and diagrams. Different baseline comparisons reports can also be generated.
Requirements change requests can also be managed within Doc Sheets’ integrated framework. Change requests can be converted to requirements with an approval process. Users may readily assess the impact of a change request on the system with traceability tools.
Reuse a customized requirements structure across projects by creating templates. This greatly increases consistency, while reducing set-up time and creates a consistent, standard approach for all software/systems development projects.
Requirements may be captured in a fully configurable interface (that includes grid and tree views) or by using spreadsheets.
Access Control and Security
Doc Sheets makes it easy to provide limited access to external staff, contractors, clients, or vendors. For example, you can provide read-only access to functional requirements and read/ write user requirements.
Doc Sheets also provides built-in encryption for secure data transfer that locks down proprietary data. Other security features include automatic password resetting and enforcing minimum password length.
An integrated framework enables smooth flow of requirements to releases. Traceability tools enable ready-assess to evaluate the impact of requirements changes on releases.
Doc Sheets is equally and fully effective for software and systems development projects – and it can be used with any lifecycle process, such as Scrum, V-model, Agile, Waterfall, or Hybrid. Doc Sheets provides flexible, unique, and unmatched advanced requirements management features at a fraction of the cost of other development tools.
Effective Project Control
Doc Sheets effectively tracks requirements to control and manage projects. When a project is not in control, risk identification and management becomes increasingly difficult and can lead to schedule and budget overruns. Effective tracking ensures projects progress to meet schedule, cost, and quality goals.
As requirements evolve throughout the system’s life, these may require changes in nature, scope, and content to become more consistent, precise, and clear. Requirements’ connections to other system artifacts also evolve over time and must be traceable.
Technical and Other Benefits
Doc Sheets can be deployed very easily for local and globally dispersed teams.
An included enterprise-embedded database requires virtually zero administration and configuration.
Furthermore, Doc Sheets provides flexible, unique, and unmatched advanced requirements and
lifecycle management features – at a fraction of the cost of other development tools.
