Link your requirements to your system architecture!
DEx SysML Bridge
Marry your traditional requirements management in Rational® DOORS® with SysML system models in Sparx Enterprise Architect™ (EA). The Syntell DEx SysML Bridge tool with its two way synchronization makes your DOORS requirements and requirements traceability available in both tools. This provides an integrated way of working that allows extended traceability between requirements and modelling through multiple system levels.
User and system requirements with verification data and traceability are typically best handled in a requirements management tool. Modelling (e.g. use case/scenario modelling, architectural modelling etc.) is on the other hand best handled in a UML/SysML tool. To really leverage the benefits of these tools, data in the different tools need to be connected.
The DEx SysML Bridge is a DOORS addon that provides two way synchronization of requirements structures between DOORS and Enterprise Architect. The DEx SysML Bridge connects DOORS and EA in real time; allowing DOORS and EA to work together as a single tool.
A configurable mapping specification allows you to control how attributes in DOORS are mapped onto attributes or tagged values in EA. The mapping of a specific attribute can be two ways or restricted to one of the directions. The mapping specification also allows you to specify the conditions e.g. for what constitutes a requirement, a block or a chapter heading in DOORS. You can also easily navigate in real time between objects in DOORS and EA.
Based on the defined mapping, the DEx SysML Bridge provides two way transfer and synchronization as follows:
- Packet structures in EA are kept in sync with chapter structures in DOORS.
- Elements in EA are kept in sync with corresponding objects in DOORS. Almost any kind of element in EA can be transferred, e.g. SysML Requirements, SysML Blocks, Actions etc.
- Relations in EA are kept in sync with traceability links in DOORS. Almost any type of relation in EA can be transferred, e.g. <<deriveReq>> relations between Requirements or <<satisfy>> relations between SysML Blocks and Requirements.
- Diagrams can be transferred from EA to DOORS.
