A little while ago, I posted about Real Configuration Management for Requirements, but I didn’t go in to any detail about HOW it should, or could be used. Requirements engineers/managers are not typically working with configuration management at this level on a daily basis, so I have set out a very basic flow here. First of all, you need to know that this post describes working with an open Beta release of DOORS Next Generation, and all manner of changes can occur before this functionality is ever released.
I set up an empty project as described in my previous post to work through the basic exercise shown in the image here. One Variant, with one Version, and two Engineers working on the problem. I thought it best to start simple and find out how this might actually work for real. If I lose you in the description then come back to this diagram for reference.
