We will be presenting a research paper showing how to configure JIRA to conduct real requirements and tests management activities foe engineering projects of all kinds (software, hardware, industrial, production, electronics, embedded, IOT, etc.). The conference is held in Montreal. Presentation is on Thursday the 26th of April (see the complete conference program here).
The paper we present describes an industrial case study using Atlassian JIRA® and third party plugins (eazyBI, Impact) for requirements management in the field of transit systems. The solution presented shows efficiency in supporting the management of requirements, traceability and the systems engineering processes globally using the JIRA environment . The results we have gathered for our customers comprehend sets of metrics obtained for traceability. We have demonstrated 20% time reduction for management of requirements, leading to better project control and better requirements coverage, as well as 10% reduction of “after-the-fact” errors. Several indirect benefits are presented, such as time and costs savings following reduction of errors, time saved by having requirements more easily accessible to developers, integrators and testers (through JIRA) and much better project value and quality control.
