Requirements Management
With unrivalled levels of control

Messy Requirements

How do you capture and manage the system and project requirements in your projects?

Do you feel the frustration of requirements changing later in your projects and you spend time, effort and money chasing the impacts and costs of such changes?


Start Now!
Succesfully loading requirements

Cradle's fully bi-directional, multi-level requirements management capability allows you to automatically load requirements from source documents, keeping the structure and hierarchy of those requirements and fully manage every requirement at every stage of the project lifecycle.


Start Now!
Gain full control of all your data

Cradle uses transitive links which enable you to see what each requirement is directly and indirectly linked to within all levels of your project hierarchy and uniquely which items each requirement is not linked to. You can see quickly which tests are not linked to any requirement without the very time consuming effort of manually tracing your way down every branch of your project hierarchy to ensure full compliance with your project's requirements.


Start Now!
  • What is full lifecycle traceability?

    Traceability of all requirements at any level of the project hierarchy at all times upwards and downwards. You can see how requirements are being satisfied at every moment in your project lifecycle.

  • How can this benefit my business?

    You are always in control. No matter how complex the project demands, no matter how many late changes are introduced, YOU can see how they impact on the project's requirements from every direction in the project hierarchy. This can save a huge amount of time in discovering what are and are NOT linked to those requirements.
  • How much does this cost?

    The way Cradle utilises licence management allows more people to use the software for fewer licences with sharing between concurrent users.

  • Can I try it for free?

    Yes, simply fill in the form at the top of this page, to automatically generate a 14 day temporary licence and download Cradle.

Full Lifecycle Traceability

Cradle achieves full lifecycle traceability, through transitive links between items which allows you to trace every requirement through its links to every other item in the project, of every type, which it is directly AND indirectly related to, and back.


Start Now!
Multi-Level Requirements

Cradle can utilise requirements at every level within the project hierarchy to ensure that all the items within the project hierarchy can be traced back to and satisfies the initial, or amended requirements giving you full confidence and control.


Start Now!
Bi-directional Control

Transitive links control the flow of data in both directions in the project hierarchy to ensure that you are always in control of all the essential data. You know, in detail, at every stage, how every part of your project satisfies the requirements of the project.


Start Now!
Graphical Hierarchies

Cradle gives you the ability to view and manipulate cross references in dynamic Hierarchy Diagrams, with full control over which information and relationships are shown, and which attributes of requirements and other items are displayed.


Start Now!
Extra Functionality

Cradle includes a substantial amount of free software in the Cradle-PDM module - including Document Loader and a full CM system.

These components ARE necessary for you to do proper RM and V&V but they are NOT in our competitors and so would be an extra cost to you to create a system to try to match ours.
