Telelogic has shipped Doors 7.1, the latest version of its requirements management software, which features a toolkit to tailor the product to smaller companies.
Doors traces and analyses changes to information to ensure a project’s compliance to specified requirements and standards. While Doors has been favoured for defence and aerospace applications, new mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley have resulted in the product being deployed in more general business applications.
Included in Version 7.1 is a Test Tracking Toolkit for smaller companies. The toolkit provides a testing environment for fewer test cases than what has been the norm in Doors, with the kit providing for hundreds to approximately 1,000 cases. A test case is used to determine if software meets a particular requirement.
Also featured is document collaboration, in which documents can be compared side by side, with differences highlighted via a “redline” feature.
To boost productivity, multiple properties of each requirement can be produced inside of Doors, within a single view.
Doors 7.1 also adds platform support for Windows 2003 Server, and it can share requirements with tools such as Microsoft Excel. Pricing for Doors 7.1 is $2,200 for a node-locked implementation and $5,500 for a floating version.
