Manual ‘ V’ Cradle


When it comes to managing your requirements  and designs there really is no contest between a manual based system and a tool based system.  A cross referenced and baselined design in Cradle is your ultimate goal.


A manual based system at worst is a set of paper requirements, managed in folders with paper-clips and sticky notes. An electronic system may include a number of word processor documents, drawings and spreadsheets. These have very limited, or manually updated meta data to describe how they interlink.

RM tool

A Requirements Management and Systems Engineering software tool brings these elements together in one place and provides the meta data and traceability that binds them together into a successful project.
