Methods and tools for efficient requirements management

Requirements need to be managed efficiently and reliably over the entire lifecycle of a project and that of the resulting product. Such management begins with structuring requirements within a repository, continues with the use of attributes, setting the right priorities and version and change management, and in the end also involves tracking changes.

In this training, you will learn which methods and tools you can use to achieve efficient requirements management.
