Knowledge-Centric Systems Engineering (KCSE) Suite v18

The Knowledge-Centric Systems Engineering (KCSE) Suite v18.1 is the evolution of the Requirements Quality Suite (RQS) Version 15

KCSE Suite v18.1 is composed of these applications:

  • System Quality Analyzer(SQA) (formerly known as Requirements Quality Analyzer or RQA)
  • Rich Authoring Tool (RAT) (formerly known as Requirements Authoring Tool)
  • Rich Authoring Tool (RAT) plugins: DOORS, Integrity, Excel (new!), Word (new!) and Rhapsody (new!)
  • System Interoperability Manager (SIM) (new!). Including the following plugins:Traceability Manager (T+),Transformation Manager (R+), Reasoning Manager and Custom Manager
  • System Knowledge Manager (KM) (also known as Knowledge Manager)
  • System Knowledge Repository Server (SKR Server) (formerly known as Requirements Quality Suite Server or RQS Server)
  • System Knowledge Repository Batch Process (SKR Batch Process) (formerly known as Requirements Quality Suite Synchronizeror RQS Synchronizer)

System Knowledge Repository Server v18.1 (SKR Server) is the configuration tool for the KCSE Suite. Thus, its deployment and use is mandatory in every KCSE Suite installation

It manages:

  • The licensing configuration
  • The SKR configuration
  • The Email server configuration
  • The SKR Batch process configuration
  • Users
  • Default metric baselines or templates

It also can contains the SKR Batch Process in the same deployment machine to assess the quality in an off-line mode, but it can also be deployed in a different server than the SKR Server.

This folder contains installers for both deployment scenarios.

System Quality Analyzer v18.1 (SQA) is the tool to manage your specification quality rules.

SQA contains the possibility to enforce each company guide to write good requirements, models or any other engineering product in an automatic way by means of creating rules that are assessed each time the engineering work product is changed.

Main features:

  • Assesses and manages the quality of the system development life cycle
  • Based on the CCC paradigm: Correctness, Completeness and Consistency analysis
  • Is tailored according to you own quality policies
  • Connected to most SE management tools

Rich Authoring Tool (RAT) is the tool to help engineers to author their work products, such as requirements, models, etc.

RAT has two different visions:

  1. from the side of the list of work products generated in a work product source (requirement repository, models, etc) a stand-alone version to author and add more products to that source,
  2. from the side of each engineering application a RAT plugin to seamless integrate with the engineering workflows created on top of each engineering application. RAT includes connectors for the following applications:
    • DOORS (32 and 64 bits)
    • Integrity
    • Rhapsody (32 and 64 bits)
    • Excel (32 and 64 bits)
    • Word (32 and 64 bits)

Main features:

  • Assists you in the activity of writing requirements and other natural language text
  • Performs Correctness and Consistency analysis on the fly
  • Suggests terminology changes based on a central knowledge base
  • Fully integrated in your Requirements Management Tool and Modelling Tool

System Knowledge Manager (SKM) is the tool aimed to control all the linguistic processes behind SQA and RAT

Main features:

  • Manages terminology and knowledge of your system
  • Helps you in the creation of patterns
  • Provides methods for automatic generation of Ontologies
  • Manages knowledge evolution over time

The System Interoperability Manager (SIM) is the smartest way to improve the collaboration between your SE tools

Main features:

  • Connects to many different SE tools at the same time
  • Allows you to produce transformations and operations between the connected sources
  • Source and target elements can be traced in the T+ Manager plug-in

Knowledge Centric Systems Engineering Suite Ontology Backups (KCSE Ontology Backups)

Contains the out-of-the-box ontology backups to understand engineering requirements.

Holds backups for three different Database Management Systems:

  • Microsoft Access,
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • MySQL

Hold backups for the following languages:

  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Swedish
  • Italian

Holds applications to keep your KCSE ontology up-to-date

The famous Flexera License Management tool (Flex LM) is the licensing tool selected for the KCSE Suite, thus it's mandatory to be included in every deployment.

The Flex LM tool compulsory needs an application (daemon) for managing KCSE Suite licenses, this is the TRC daemon. it must be included in every KCSE deployment.

This folder contains versions of 32 bits and 64 bits for both the Flex LM tool and the TRC Daemon. The deployment must be coherent using equivalent versions of both tools.

Resources: manuals, files and templates.
