My work as a functional consultant involves many things. One important task is to gather the right requirements the users ask for to be included into a particular system. These gathered requirements will be the basis for the development and tests. That’s where other documents are created i.e. system design specifications, UAT scripts and etc. As usual, the requirements will change at some point. Thus, the documents must be updated to reflect the changes. So imagine when there are repeated changes in the requirements, then you would need to locate and update the sentences and repeat the same for other documents that were already generated. That’s a loooot of time and effort needed!
So the story goes … Our new PM has introduced a software that he loves to use. This software allows a functional person to list out the requirements and generate the system requirements document with just a click of a button. This software also lets you generate test scripts easily. To do so, you would need to add the test scenarios. For any change, all you need to do is go back to the particular use case, update it, and click to generate the new version for the requirements document. Easy! Then, click again to generate a new version for the test document. Pretty interesting, huh?
Want to have a go at it, you can download a trial version from here.
Now, the tough part is to learn how to use it! Wish me luck!
