Requirements Quality Analyzer (RQA v15)

Requirements Quality Analyzer

A SMARTer way to manage requirements quality

The Requirements Quality Analyzer tool (RQA) allows you to define, measure, manage and improve the quality of the requirements' specifications.

 Requirements Quality Analyzer (RQA)


The Requirements Quality Analyzer(RQA) uses a wide set of metrics (based on Correctness, Consistency and Completeness) in order to assess the quality of requirement specifications. While individual metrics are suitable to assess the quality of individual requirements (Correctness), global ones can assess the quality of a complete specification (Completeness, Consistency and Correctness).

RQA improved reporting

RQA version 15 includes a whole set of new reports suitable for different roles within the organization. Thus, on the one hand the new reporting system covers the overall quality of a project or module; while on the other hand it covers the details that deal with the quality of a given individual requirement.

The new reporting system includes a very valuable tool for Quality Control teams: reports can be automatically generated and sent to the requirements author (or project manager) just by providing an e-mail account in the setup process.

Semantic Capabilities

RQA is based on natural language processing and semantic techniques, thus allowing for a comprehension of the real meaning of the requirements as opposed to just that of the isolated keywords.

Benefits of the tool:

Quality: The quality of your projects will boost by analyzing all of the agreed upon best practices, rules, checklists, policies… None of them will be overlook.

Time: Reduce the time of the overall RM process by automating the verification activities. Share a common quality vision all along the supply chain. .

Money: Save money by automating peer-reviewing and V&V processes. Furthermore, the most important way of cutting costs is achieved by reducing rework caused by flaws in requirements.
