ENOVIA: Requirements Management


Reduce product failures through customer co-creation and a requirements-driven development process.

Requirements Manager enables organizations to improve their overall global requirement management process by capturing the “voice of the customer” and translating it into user requirements that define new products. Requirements Manager provides companies with a central repository of customer needs and the product requirements that satisfy them.


Requirements Manager enables global development organizations to drive consistency in a shared environment when capturing customer, regulatory standards and market-driven requirements. Requirements can be defined and decomposed into a hierarchy, and fulfilled through the design, implementation and testing of final products to provide traceability throughout product development. The benefits of Requirements Manager are further extended when used with other ENOVIA® and CATIA® solutions to define complex products, including their functional and logical aspects. In addition, as requirements are linked to program and project management activities, full traceability is established throughout the entire development process ensuring that the products that are developed will meet original market goals.


Requirements Manager enables companies to improve efficiencies and effectiveness of their requirements management process by enabling the following:

  • Fully manage the requirements lifecycle from the initial authoring to fulfillment with a product launch
  • Maintain requirements traceability back to the original customer and marketing (source) documents
  • Improve configuration of requirements to reduce development costs and project schedule slippage by establishing baselines agreed to by all stakeholders.
  • Enhance sharing and communication of requirements to cross functional organizations resulting in less rework, missed objectives, and missed deadlines.
  • Support optimal design architecture definition by enabling trade-off analysis that balances functionality, performance, and cost.


  • Capture the voice of customers from any source
    capture and elicit the voice of your customers from any source by using either the standard office requirements capture tools or through Reqtify to plan new products with the greatest market impact. Users can also formalize unstructured ideas to create structured requirements through integrations with 3DSwym.

  • Maintain single source of requirements
    Single source for managing requirements enables improved change management, easier implementation tracking, better traceability and stronger impact analysis. Centralized repository also helps in managing history of change, record discussions and decisions behind changes and define requirements baselines.

  • Prioritize requirements based on value delivered
    Assess priorities of requirements and evaluate the difficulty of achieving the requirements enabling product managers to focus product features that deliver maximum value to customers. Requirements managed as independent and intelligent objects enable better decision making as compared to managing requirements as documents.

  • Model the systems, interactions, and their impact
    Complex products require an understanding beyond fit and form. Users can manage interactions between the various systems, track the impacted systems and functions due to changes in market needs and even identify the tests that have to be executed to validate the changes in the requirements.

  • Compliance to Market Regulations
    Maintain centralized repository of regulatory compliance requirements with predefined objectives that can be added to a product features or product variants to deliver market compliant products faster.



  • Meet standards and regulations by controlling the requirement management process.
  • Improve product quality and customer satisfaction with new products that are designed and developed to accurately reflect the voice of the customer.
  • Reduce development costs and rework by bridging the gaps between product requirements, design and launch.
  • Improve visibility, team communication and collaboration because teams are using a central repository and common tool to manage product requirements.
  • Improve overall traceability throughout the evolution of requirements.
