Quickly and seamlessly connect complex requirements across hardware and software teams that use differing methodologies.
Unlock Information Stored in Overwhelming MRDs and PRDs
Working fast is difficult when your team is wrestling with marketing requirements documents (MRDs) or product requirements documents (PRDs) that are hundreds of pages long and immediately out of date. All the while, decisions and changes remain locked up in diverging email chains.
Using Jama Connect™ as your requirements system of record, you can achieve and maintain alignment with real-time updates across hardware and software teams in a single location.
Manage change seamlessly
View requirements on an atomic level and ensure everyone is working from the most recent version. See how items are connected and get a clear picture of the impact of change.
Conduct reviews in Jama Connect
Simplify the review and approval process by capturing key stakeholder feedback from within Jama Connect. Initiate reviews on a document or group of items, or even single items.
Connect users to individual items
Focus only on the requirements you’re connected to, not the contents of some document that’s hundreds of pages long. Collaborate in real-time and respond quickly to changes without having to search through lengthy PRDs.
Requirements Traceability and Embedded Systems
As hardware and software continue to converge and lines blur, traceability is increasingly critical to avoiding overlooked software or system requirements that lead to painful hardware redesign and costly overruns.
Break Down Silos and Blend Methodologies
The rise of the Internet of Things is bringing together hardware, firmware and software development. Combined methodologies such as Agile and Waterfall are also breaking the traditional document-based product development workflow.
Jama Connect allows for different item types with different fields and workflows, enabling teams to work in their own space and follow their own methods, all while retaining a central repository for product development. Jama Analyze™ gives you a unified view of team progress and areas of delivery risk.
Ensure data is connected correctly
Use Jama Connect to define and standardize relationships. Prevent users from connecting incorrect data and help maintain project structure.
Customize your workflows
Map workflows to adapt to your organization’s business needs. Configure items in different ways to accommodate the methods your teams like best.
Verify and validate in real-time
Manage traceability of the test cases you use for verification and validation and execute test plans that directly associate with requirements.
Combine Jama Analyze with Jama Connect’s powerful ability to help teams avoid potential defects that can cause rework and missed targets. Quickly configure clean, clear dashboards to view patterns of risk across projects and time.
Avoid expensive rework in the product development process by trending requirement additions, updates and deletions in Jama Analyze across each Jama Connect project—and across other technologies important to your development process.
Evaluate quality risks
Jama Analyze enables you to evaluate potential quality risks by looking at the percentage of items in Jama Connect that are missing coverage across your relationship model. Identify critical opportunities to adjust process and improve outcomes by trending and combining the data sourced by your teams and the technologies you use most.
