Jama Connect is being evaluated as a potential tool to do requirements verification and sell-off. For now, we will be evaluating it for one of our programs. Jama Connect has the potential to upgrade our current process to review and sell-off requirements via email to using a centralized web based tool.
Our hope is that Jama Connect will allow our engineers to focus on the requirements technical content rather than on the process. Much time is consumed in tracking and statusing so we hope that will be a fall-out from using Jama Connect.
Given our current process, Jama Connect presents some clear improvements. Obviously, it's ability to scale to large programs will be key. At the same time, having a centralized repository for documents, comments, etc., will allow for a rich integration of products and the ability to quickly perform an impact analysis. Most importantly, Jama Connect will need to pull from other tools that are currently in use to integrate itself into the process.
