Facilitate Requirements Validation with Features that Engage
Blueprint provides the features needed to engage stakeholders and confidently drive a set of requirements to final approval. Blueprint’s review dashboards help control large-scale requirements reviews among diverse groups of people to their conclusion. Rich requirements simulations keep stakeholders engaged and let them understand the true meaning of the requirements, the catalyst for better feedback. And automatically-generated requirements documents support existing company processes and provide the hard-copy artifacts which are often needed for official sign-off.
- Document Generation
Blueprint automatically generates Microsoft Word or Excel documents that conform to your corporate standards. Authors can quickly customize or create the document templates that are used for document generation and having a template for each stakeholder means you always have up-to-date requirements documents with just the information each individual needs.
- Requirements Simulation
Blueprint transforms textual and graphical requirements into a visual, engaging simulation. All types of requirements are brought into the simulation experience, and the user controls its execution along with the ability to enter comments at any point. Blueprint’s simulation replaces the need for stakeholders to manually assimilate a vision of the future application from disparate information, scattered in different files, documents, or tools.
- Informal Reviews
Blueprint lets you conduct informal reviews of live requirements artifacts. Users can select any combination of live artifacts from anywhere in the project for review by multiple stakeholders. Should the requirements change during the review, the reviewer can automatically update their content with the latest version. Blueprint’s informal reviews provide a fast and easy way to get informal feedback on a set of requirements from a group of people.
- Formal Reviews and Approvals
Blueprint lets you conduct formal reviews of baselined requirements artifacts. Users can select a baseline of requirements artifacts for review by a group of people, identify which requirements artifacts are for approval, and who among the group they’re seeking approval from. Blueprint’s formal reviews and approvals provide a controlled and efficient way to solicit and drive requirements approvals from a group of stakeholders.
- Review and Approval Progress Tracking
Blueprint lets you track review progress using a graphical dashboard. The dashboard lets users track review and approval progress of both the requirements artifacts and the individual progress of those performing the review/approval. Blueprint’s review and approval progress tracking provides the detailed tracking information necessary to confidently drive requirements approval consensus among a group of stakeholders.
