What do you like best?

DOORS Next has a wonderful interface and looks good....however, many of the features that we had in DOORS Classic are missing. It is great to see, via the hovering, the information from another tier. The management of attributes and views is really good. Traceability via various link types is terrific. Some reuse of requirements has been beneficially to management of requirement specifications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

DOORS Next is being features that have been standard in DOORS Classic. Things like layout DXL, the ability to combine information into an attribute, links across multiple tiers of requirements, etc are missing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Requirements development and management is the NUMBER ONE problem with programs....being able to do this successfully is CRITICAL to program success. Having a tool to manage, develop, and handle change management will greatly enhance our success and profitability. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

DOORS and DNG provide the capability to interact with other MBSE tools such as Rhapsody, and RQM to name a few, which allows a comprehensive solution to requirements management and product design. Each tool has its benefits and its drawbacks, however both tools are well supported.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

DNG can improve on its usability, for example in DOORS it is easy to look at a hierachy tree, where in DNG it is not obvious, if its there ( i have not seen this). The ability to import and export is a bit clunky and when needing to make large scale changes this capability falls short, in contrast this is quite easy in DOORS, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the web client interface and its association with other web applications on the Jazz platform. I like the flexibility in adding more applications via OSLC. Traceability with other applications is also a big benefit. Going further all data being stored in a relational database and be referenced many times rather than copied is a huge benefit over classic DOORS. Add in the ability to configuration manage your requirements using GCM facilitate requirements reuse by reference across my entire product line. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

DNG has some hard constraints like not being able to move projects/component from server to server .... one must be near perfect in the partitioning of data. Linking constraints are an all or nothing proposition. Configuration of change constraints must be set every time you create a stream. The type system also has hard constraints that cannot be violated otherwise you will corrupt the type system (duplicates). Type system must be identical to clone and copy, otherwise you incurr data loss. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automotive electrical architecture and electronic component development. Benefit is specifying what we want the product to do, link it to test cases in RQM to verify it and reuse these assets across our entire product line. Quality goes up, cost go down when we do reuse.

What do you like best?

DNG provides the capability to add custom attributes for tracking and reporting on requirement metadata. I especially like that I can trace my requirements to User Stories in Workflow Management and Test Cases in Test Management to manage my large scale software development project. This traceability allows me to provide detailed reports to my customer that demonstrate that requirements have been implemented and fully tested. The interface is easy to use (for creating requirements) and the views allow me to query requirements by user defined attributes. You can easily generate a requirements document from DNG using the "module" feature. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is really no downside other than the licensing costs if you have a small project. I believe the cost are worth the full lifecycle capability of the full IBM ELM tool suite. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
