Frequently asked questions about the use

Is the incrementing of the requirements version necessarily manual and decided by the writer?

The answer is yes: the version is managed manually by the editor.

That said:

  • REQCHECKER™ has a function to compare two versions of the repository which allows to list requirements whose content has changed and whose version has remained the same. For example, it allows you to perform a pre-delivery review to identify omissions by the editors.
  • The main reason for the existence of the version is the impact analysis: to identify downstream requirements that need to be reviewed when an upstream requirement has been modified. REQCHECKER™ proposes an automatic version to avoid the developer to perform the increment manually.
