Overall Satisfaction with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation

DOORS is used in my organisation for the required handling of various products and across all the major departments. It is used for requirement tracking and tagging in Active Safety, Passive Safety, Driver Assistance and many more departments. It is used in majority of the departments in my organisation for tracking the requirements. There is a server-defined for DOORS itself where all the database lies.
Various access right is required to get to the documents. It majorly solves the issue of tracking the requirements. It is linked with several other tools so that the linking is done to know about the coverage status of a particular requirement.
  • Requirements tracking
  • Requirements Storage
  • Linking from higher level to lower level
  • Requirement Coverage
  • Detailed Information and attributes
  • Editing is really tough
  • More Robust feature
  • Detailed User Manual
  • Videos for each use case
  • A better UI/UX
  • Usage Easiness
  • Traceability
  • Sytem Analysis
  • Accessibility
  • Less Effort in maintaining requirements
  • Baselining is easier
  • Creating BOL for the product efficient
It is a cheaper option and more reliable. The customer support is better as IBM is a brand which everyone knows about. The functionalities and the features used are much more and better than any tools available out there in the requirement. The support for the tool is also pretty fast and customer centric for which it is a safer and viable option

For tracking the requirements and maintaining them, the tool is really good. If you want to maintain a product overview or a system requirement the tool is really helpful for the life cycle of the V model. The system requirements and software requirements can be maintained with a linkage that is very useful for traceability. But, when it comes to editing requirements the tool is not very competent. Excel could be used instead for editing and adding pictures [because] in the tool it is really difficult to do so.
