IBM Rational DOORS

It is quite powerful and robust as a tool for all of our requirements. It is also compatible with HP ALM, our formal test management tool so that we are able to export comprehensive trace matrices for reporting purposes. However, it is a clunky, difficult, and extremely slow tool that is not well adapted to agile software development.

Teamcenter

Well suited for:
  • Enterprise companies who want to enforce a specific workflow to get products from concept to production;
  • Companies who have a large workforce that do not talk to each other in person but communicate product data between departments in the form of datapacks.
Not Well Suited for:
  • Companies and individuals who have very few products of which many are very simple. The cost is just not justified for these.
  • Companies without an IT department to manage the Teamcenter software (it is a lot of work and requires a full-time administrator).

  • Auto tracking of all changes made to an object
  • Ability to create a toolkit to generate documents straight from DOORS
  • Linking between DOORS modules using DXL

  • Teamcenter tracks & creates revisions pretty well, but that is after much customization we've done to it.
  • Quite a bit of search power, although very complicated and challenging to use the search features.
  • A database that can be integrated with ERP systems, but that does require much code writing and an SOA system.
  • Document security -- not sure if these features are out-of-the-box or customizations, but this capability is highly valuable to protect IP.

Cons

IBM Rational DOORS

  • The program can seem overwhelming because it is very complex. Maybe a beginner, intermediate and advanced mode?
  • The software has some dependencies on other software that make it easy to break at times.
  • Setting up the software was a nightmare. It has too many components, and once the connection between them is set you cannot make changes easily.

Teamcenter

  • Within the NX CAD package, there are often various little bugs and glitches that we come across in daily use. We generally submit incident reports to Siemens on these.
  • In general, the Teamcenter software package lacks ease of use, general users within the department require frequent intervention and help from higher users for seemingly simple tasks.

At the moment we are required by contract to continue to use the IBM DOORS software for our current client. Given that it can be expensive, if we were to use it after our current client's needs were met, we would have to secure other projects in order to justify the continued use of the software.

Because of our current customer needs, we will most likely maintain use of Siemens PLM products for some time. Aside from the initial software cost, we pay for yearly maintenance. Maintaining our yearly maintenance licensing with Siemens, we receive access to all of the latest software releases, as well as premier technical support

Usability

The UI is terrible and not intuitive. Users need training in order to complete tasks. Much like SAP, it's not the clearest tool. The tracing feature is especially complicated because you must write the scripts yourself. There is a learning curve. Also, even the setup, installation, and logging in each time takes a considerable amount of time.

As previously mentioned, due to the intense amount of features and modules present in the software, the usability of the software suffers greatly. Many of the features are not used in our context, and many of the modules are not purchased, but the options are still present on the interface leading to a lot of clutter, much of which is never used. The interfaces suffer from a lack of design and tend to feel like a conglomerate of Windows 98 elements.

Internal to our company we have several experts who have extended DOORS functionality to include some great features. And these folks are well regarded by IBM as DOORS experts in the industry.

I have never personally dealt with Siemens customer support, but the consultants who did the initial setup of Siemens PLM (Teamcenter) did a really great job in answering all of our support queries in record time. Many of the queries were directed back to Siemens and answers were given via the consultants; this process never took more than 24 hours and usually solved the problems we had.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Rational DOORS

Requisite Pro (and Rational Requirements Composer, it's successor) is more simple and focused on requirements. Is like a part of DOORS and can be suitable to smaller projects. IT people on the other hand prefer agile tools like JIRA. Of course if the project is big enough, DOORS is a good option to consider.

Teamcenter

Siemens PLM software is a complete packgage that fully inegrates PLM, CAD, CAE, and CAM. It drove effciency, innovation, and workflows within my organization. Each individual piece of software is either the leader in its own area of functionality or comparable to the competition that I have used previously.

It's a very robust and mature tool. The only thing that would make it better is the have a version embrace the cloud, which I'm sure is underway, but it's complicated, so it will take more time. But when it's done, look out. It will be near-perfect!

Return on Investment

IBM Rational DOORS

  • If you can setup DOORS to your project, you will experience lower costs.
  • Also, less rework in the project, which means lower times to achieve your milestones.
  • Finally, the cost of setting up a related project is considerably lower, and the estimates obtained in the process are much more precise.

Teamcenter

  • Decreased time to process ECNs with electronic workflow and notifications
  • Ability to track status of ECNs has given us a better overview of the health of our process and resource constraints
  • Version control for released items going through revision has reduced risk of manufacturing the wrong revision
