Product development and writing requirements

I do use the tool for entering/writing records and files including test plans/STDs and other more. I also use it for test execution and traceability matrix generate.

Pros

As one that was involved in writing requirements to the development team per our intended use: Traceability matrix is the most complicated module in the SW and it is just done properly and in a correct way. The navigation within the tool is also easy and reasonable.

Cons

there is no such thing in Polarion organization by 'Folders' or 'Tree', everything is done by searching and it is enough not to give the right name or it was forgotten, you will easy get lost.

Pros

Nice markiting slides. Its hard to find any pro.

Cons

Still doesn't work even after spending a fortune for consultants. Very slow Crashes frequently Its is necesarry to manipulate .xml files to get trivial task done. No admistration tools. Outdated user interface. Supports blames the browser however no major browser works flawless with polarion. Distracts people from getting their job done.

Polarion ALM with cusomization

I am using Polarion tool for requirements management for the complete product line. This is one of the best tools I have used till now.

Pros

1. It is a web based tool. So, there is no issue with the speed. 2. user friendly - word document look alike interface for writing the requirements. 3. Trace-ability - Very easy to make the trace-ability between different levels of requirements. 4. Review process - This tool can also help in the independent review of the requirements. 5. Customization - This tool can be customized according to the project or organization needs.

Cons

1. Training - end users need lot of training to use this tool which is bit expensive. 2. The document needs to be saved as and when the requirements are written on the interface document. There is no auto-save option.
