Be Amazed by What ReqIF Studio Can Do

The best way to learn about a software is by looking at some real-world data. Therefore, we provide you here with a a great example.

The ReqIFz Archive found here is based on a public standard document, it is part of the ERTMS Subset-26, a standard for train control systems. You don't need to understand the technical details, but it is full of stuff that we need for a good demo: Lots of requirements, figures, traces and the like.

The ReqIF model was generated from a Word document, which is also included in the archive. The converter was developed by the publicly funded openETCS project. The rest of Subset-26 has been made available by the author of the converter, Moritz Dorka.
