Aras announced the availability of next-generation requirements management embedded in Aras VPLM for Autodesk Vault.
Aras VPLM with Requirements Management combines advanced requirements management functionality with enterprise PLM, providing companies that run Autodesk Vault with new capabilities for systems engineering, systems planning, development and realization, the company says. Users can identify, associate, track and trace different types of requirements (including physical, functional, logical and performance requirements) and validate that the system or product satisfies the original intent.
"With the increasing complexity of all types of products the way to ensure accuracy is to put all your requirements in a single system and actively link those requirements to the actual product development process," said Peter Schroer, president of Aras. "Aras VPLM with Requirements Management gives companies that run Autodesk software the advanced functionality they want along with the scalability, security and flexibility they really need, in a single solution that works across the enterprise."
Users can make anything a requirement, including files, e-mails, scanned images, URL links, pictures, videos, as well as existing PLM items, such as parts, materials, drawings and CAD models. Trace Matrix Verification provides traceability of requirements to verify that systems, subsystems and interfaces satisfy all requirements, from high-level conceptual down to the detailed component-level.
