IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS former IBM Rational DOORS profits very much from the mighty market position it had till today. It had been the most favored requirement engineering tools suite with the highest investments in the infrastructure concerning hardware, software, and knowledge sources. It was embedded in knowledge sources of test stands, hardware labs, and knowledge database servers. It allowed for some of the highest profit changes and made the fame with it. But the paradigms of requirements engineering change. If not were superseded by completely different approaches for the target solution worlds. The foremost position in the selling tables is unstable if changes are not solved or coped with by the strategist at IBM and their customers. Since the highly successful alternative suits are already at the market, and some are from IBM already the lifecycle for IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS is at the later highs. But the suite is still at the very top and very popular. There are still many problems unsolved and many wishes at the customers to make the use more comfortable and efficient at the overall level. If the time of setting up the software package is passed the adoption get more extended and complicated. There is a lot of work at the stage around and the expertise will be required for a long time from now.

Teamcenter is growing very well in active workspace as a web-based client, but again, when I'm coming from the manufacturing point of view or a Build of Processes point of view, the software easy plan still needs to improve in a way. Of course, I think they're improving it also in a good way, but it's still not yet matured so from today onwards I can simply ask my users from product resistant to using the plan and push it further. I think there we have to improve more.

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
IBM
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.

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 is a more robust and faster application, with better search capability and easier customization. There is a reason you find companies using CATIA as their CAD software with Teamcenter as their PLM application! I don't know anyone who can name a company using NX with Enovia as their PLM!

Scalability

Teamcenter exhibits commendable scalability, meriting an 8 out of 10. Its architecture accommodates our expanding material science firm seamlessly. With modular expansions and flexible configurations, it adapts well to increased data volumes and user growth. However, while robust, occasional complexities arise during extensive scaling, hindering a perfect score but substantiating a high ranking for its scalability.

IBM
  • IBM Rational DOORS is already succeeded by different IBM toolset for the task that proved to perform highly profitable.
  • Not all parts are under development. It might run out of date sooner or later by design.
  • IBM Rational DOORS has most installation in truncated format so it is in need of full fledged installation for development at the customer.

Teamcenter Screenshots

Screenshot of Active Workspace, the User Interface (UI) to drive Teamcenter. With no install required, it is a visual UI to navigate through products and processes, with tooltips to guide users along the way.Screenshot of BOM configuration, in Teamcenter. With flexibility in how a BOM is managed and defined, it can provide an up-to-date source of information that eliminates the need for standalone spreadsheets and systems. Teamcenter X provides a flexible BOM management strategy that enables a single, accurate product definition for all who interact with the BOM.Screenshot of Teamcenter X search and analytics capabilities provides a streamlined product lifecycle management (PLM) search experience to help quickly find data. Teamcenter X visually presents search results in logical groups so users can drill down through product structures and relationships.Screenshot of Product design intent can be communicated, and product data visualized, in their entirety using 2D and 3D visualization and markup capabilities. The user can also visualize and interrogate Product Manufacturing Information (PMI).Screenshot of documents are managed in conjunction with product development, with integrated PDF for viewing and markup.
