The basics

       Extremely easy to use; no pop-up screens nor multiple tabs to maintain your requirements, it’s just as easy and fast as working in MS-Excel.

       Edit the requirement or attributes directly in the tree-grid;

       Edit / view all requirement’s detail in the side panel;

       Auto-versioning of requirements on change; logging of usernames on change; calculated stability based on change frequency;

       Minimum best set of essential attributes,
so that you can manage but not drown in detail.

       Various views to re-group columns, so you can focus just on attributes, or just on change, or entry, etc.

       Requirements grouping, but no hierarchical requirements (requirements are not hierarchical; they are linked in many-to-many relationships).

       In fact you manage Items, i.e. any traceable identifiers, such as a Requirement, UseCase, Change Request, To Be Resolved, or any other type you may have.

Sets - for baseline & incremental management

       Sets - establish sets of requirements to track build versions, test iterations, product releases, or any other.

       Sets are “fluid” till locked.

       You can assemble sets with only a few clicks at group level, minimising effort to assemble sets while allowing requirements to be moved in and out of groupings until you lock the set.

       You can click Sets on / off for easy viewing / comparison

Linking - to manage Item relationships

       Linking – innovative screen layout maximises overview when linking requirements to any other traceable Item.

       Three levels of linkages – showstopper, regular, implicit

Traceability between artefacts and requirements

       Traceability – if a file changes, which requirements are suspect; which other files are affected?

       Through links - which associated requirements could be suspect, and in which files are those?

       Picking a file(s) – which requirements are in the file(s)? Through linkages, which requirements are linked and in which files are those?

       Automatic file change detection to automatically catalogue whether any tags have become suspect as a result of changes in your work.

       Rate of change reporting between Sets - showing how many requirements remain stable, are new, deleted or changed between base-line versions.

Re-use, Enterprise Architecture, Program support

       Supports project hierarchies, for example enterprise architecture requirements can be assigned (copied or linked) to individual projects.

       Assigned requirements are treated as baselines and will not automatically update in the target project. This ensures each project can remain in control of its time-line, and adopt changes (including budget changes!) under strict change control.

Usage design

       Client server model, the MS-SQLserver 2005/2008 database can be located anywhere (we’ve tested it from Wellington accessing our database in Sydney - 2,500 kms / 1,500 miles away - without any noticeable performance issues).

       Share your requirements across geographic locations

       Multi-user, of course.

       Loosely-coupled design, allows you to use as much or as little traceability / tagging functionality as you choose, and doesn’t whinge if things are incomplete.

       Provides a small-footprint requirements browser window which floats on-top of your work window so that you can keep typing in your Word document or code file, but still see the requirements descriptions without needing a second screen.


       Non-invasive tagging - ensures that MS-Word doesn’t die on you when your document is 30 pages and you have a range of requirements to trace (unlike some of the big name tools). This design also means you can exchange files to other external parties such as vendors, without difficulty of re-integrating return documents.

       Non-invasive tagging – ensures you can repair your legacy code by gradually adding ScopeTracker’s textual requirement tags to source code & test script files

       Ideal for tagging configuration data / xml files to trace back to requirements and via requirement to requirements linkages tracing to functionally related aspects in other files.

       Import and export of MS-Excel requirements worksheets.
