Some of the most difficult challenges facing automotive suppliers today are integrating complex systems engineering processes, promoting collaboration among multiple engineering disciplines and enabling the sharing of intellectual property among globally dispersed teams. Overcome these challenges and accelerate your success by automating your Requirements Management and Traceability.
To put it simply, Requirements Management and Traceability is the consistent, prioritised and monitored approach for administering and controlling the information that helps businesses develop the right product for the right market at the right time.
Here’s how to approach it…
Understand the challenge
The most difficult challenges are:
- Integrating complex systems engineering processes
- Promoting collaboration among multiple disciplines
- Sharing data among globally dispersed items
Process integration and traceability are key
Why? – Process integration eliminates communication barriers by creating a collaborative environment for sharing ideas and data. While traceability makes a big difference to project cycle times and costs.
Understand the importance of collaboration
Collaboration enables continuous improvement of products and business processes. When 61% of profit is generally generated through new ideas and concepts, you can understand why it’s good to talk.
Enjoy the benefits
In a nutshell, the benefits of requirements management include:
- Shorter cycle times
- Lower product and quality costs
- The ability to take advantage of tight window markets
