Users can identify the reciprocal impacts among requirements, related information that are linked in complex ways
Fujitsu has introduced, as a cloud service, a suite of tools to help generate a structure of requirements, evaluating the maturity of requirements and examining the impact of requirements using the Tri-shaping methodology.
Tri-shaping is the requirements definition methodology systematised for building ICT systems and it ensure that requirements definitions accurately reflect the needs of stakeholders while improving quality without having to make excessive revisions during ICT systems development.
The new cloud service will support systems engineers of the Fujitsu Group applying the Tri-shaping methodology and enable them to build ICT systems that accurately reflect high-quality requirements definitions.
With the new service, it is possible to generate a structure of requirements that maintain the consistency of the relationships among stakeholders while visually representing the relationships among the needs of stakeholders and the new service enables users to evaluate and record the extent to which each requirement has been finalised using indexes from multiple angles.
In addition, the cloud service enables users to identify the reciprocal impacts among requirements and related information that are linked in complex ways, such as stakeholders, preconditions and non-functional requirements.
Fujitsu’s as a cloud service includes a variety of features, such as guidance necessary for the work process and automatic checks on work status, that facilitate the adoption of Tri-shaping requirements definition methodology and it enables users to monitor progress on requirements definitions from multiple angles and provides a variety of alerts, such as delays or a decline in quality, to prompt users to address the problem.
It also has features to help analyse the cause of the problem and consider measures to recover process delays and it has features to evaluate how firm the requirements are or how effective the investment will be in particular requirements.
