      Hi, I’m trying to understand where ReqIF Studio fits into the market. I’m familiar with IBM DOORS, esp it’s Gateway interface to Rhapsody.
      Is ReqIF Studio a replacement for DOORS? To replace DOORS would I need to add further packages?

      Hi Martin,

      There are three primary use cases:

      • Conducting ReqIF-based Reviews: If you receive ReqIF for review and similar activities, but don’t have a ReqIF-capable tool.
      • Debugging ReqIF: Many ReqIF implementations are buggy and/or are interoperable, as only a subset of ReqIF is supported. Having a fully compliant editor can really help (compare this to using a simple XML editor)
      • Basic RE: There are indeed some organizations that use ReqIF Studio for requirements engineering. This works for small specs and small teams

      In short, it is not intended as a DOORS replacement, which also explains the significant price difference. 🙂

      Ok, thanks for clearing that up. Any recommendation for DOORS replacements gratefully received! 😀
