Requirements Quality Suite (RQS v15)

The Requirements Quality Suite (RQS) is the product suite offered by The REUSE Company to assess, control and manage the quality of requirements. According to the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), systems engineering «focuses on defining customer needs and requirements functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements». Requirements represent pure and valuable knowledge about our systems. 

RQS has defined an innovative requirements quality process that supports different activities including requirements authoring, quality metrics based on Correctness, Completeness and Consistency, quality evolution, etc.



Requirements Quality Suite (RQS)


The Requirements Quality Suite includes all the products around requirements quality:

  • RQA - Requirements Quality Management
  • RAT - Requirements Authoring
  • KM - Knowledge Management
  • RQS Server

Requirements Quality Suite’s goal is to efficiently manage the quality of both requirements and knowledge as real assets for the organization. Within the Requirements Quality Process, RQS suggests several new roles, such as the System Knowledge Base Architect, or the System Knowledge Repository Manager. The suite includes a set of tools to support these roles, and defines a PDCA cycle to provide methodological support to the process.

RQS Server is the tool to set up the Requirements Quality environment, to manage the "out-of-the-shelf" quality baselines and it is in charge of the off-line quality assessment process.
