Live Requirements Traceability
Jama Connect® is the recognized leading software to manage requirements with Live Traceability™ through the systems development process for proven reduction in cycle time and improved product quality.
Live requirements traceability is the ability for any engineer at any time to see the most up to date and complete upstream and downstream information for any requirement—no matter the stage of systems development or how many siloed tools and teams it spans. This enables the engineering process to be managed through data, and its performance improved in real time.
Live Traceability of system requirements is required by industry standards to ensure product safety and forms the foundation for digital engineering and model-based systems engineering. It delivers significant productivity improvements, and dramatically reduces the risk of product delays, cost overruns, defects, rework, and recalls resulting in faster time to market.
Top quartile benchmarked outperformed bottom-quartile counterparts by 2.5x
Top quartile performers outperformed bottom-quartile counterparts by nearly 2X.
Jama Software® is the first to measure traceability thanks to our clients’ participation in a benchmarking dataset of over 40,000 complex product development projects spanning aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, industrial, medical device, semiconductor, space systems, and more.
All of this is made possible by our core product, Jama Connect®, which enables the largest community of engineers using requirements management SaaS (Software as a Service) in the world.
In this Requirements Traceability Benchmark, we examine how traceability is measured, and the business practices that separate top-quartile performers from the rest. This is the first large scale, empirical research to confirm that higher levels of traceability correlate to cycle time and quality improvements.
Jama Connect enables the delivery of high-quality products, faster, by improving the systems development process through unified requirements management and live requirements traceability across the V model (or any product development process you utilize such as Waterfall, Agile, etc.).
Products have become smarter. They have more requirements and interdependencies, and there are more of them than ever. As a result, the product development process has become a matter of managing complexity. This paper discusses five tips that will help you produce the kind of traceability that allows teams to manage complexities more effectively and efficiently across the entire product development process.
The Requirements Traceability Alliance addresses the fundamental problem facing systems engineering organizations today – how to comply with Live Traceability across requirements that span siloed engineering disciplines and disparate tools.
