Requirements Flowdown

Requirements Management

Requirements Flowdown

An effective methodology is needed for managing the laborious and challenging task of identifying, documenting, structuring, and managing customer requirements and voice of customer. Before developing and launching any new product, Requirements Flowdown (RFD) software helps you achieve this with ease. The functions, requirements, and characteristics can be managed effectively right from the system, subsystem, all the way to the component levels.

RFD uses two robust systems, where data is structured by part families called the Production Item, and by the Bill of Material (BOM) which includes the Voice of Customer (VOC). RFD uses the V-Model to establish traceability of requirements within the system, subsystem, component, and Hardware & Software.
