Cradle‐RM Pro can manage data for all of your project phases. Cradle can capture data from external documents or tools and track changes to these sources; build new sets of requirements, functions, components, interfaces, tests or verifications and link them to the source data and each other.; check the quality of textual statements and data structures; prove information integrity with traceability and coverage analyses; raise customers’ confidence with proof that your work satisfies its source data, complies fully with its constraints, and will meet customers’ needs; easily track your progress with metrics and KPIs and link your WBS and actual progress to project planning tools.
External documents can be loaded into hierarchies of items. Every requirement, regulation or other item in Cradle is linked to its origin in a document. Changes in new document versions are automatically found and the database updated. You can prove the integrity of your source data to customers with a full range of coverage analyses of their documents.
Cradle tracks all edits to every requirement, test case, verification and all other information that you want it to hold. Edits can be reversed selectively or by group. Change logs are immediately available. All information can be checked for quality using user-defined rules that analyse the text and item structures. Generate documents such as a URD, SRD, IRS, SDS and SSDSs to match your or your client’s required formats with user defined templates and full traceability of which items were published in each document issue. You define how information is viewed and reported in any number of views, shown as nested tables, trees, matrices, pivot tables, and as diagrams.
Cradle is simple to customise and use. You do not need to learn a scripting language or become a programmer to tailor it to your process. After every change to your schema, Cradle will automatically update collections of queries, views and other definitions that make you productive immediately.
Cradle‐RM Pro is one of the Cradle product range. The full, multi user, product is Cradle Enterprise.
