REQIF11 — Associate RelationGroup to source specification and target specification

  • Key: REQIF11-1
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15435
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: ProSTEP iViP Association ( Bertil Muth [X] (Inactive))
  • Summary:

    In the RFC, a "RelationGroup" element is associated to "specRelations".

    However, in contrast to prior versions of the Requirements Interchange Format,
    the ReqIF RFC does not account for the fact that grouped relations should either link
    requirements of two specifications (e.g. Customer Requirements Specification and
    System Requirements Specification) or requirements within one specification.

    Thus, two associations should be added to "RelationGroup", called "sourceSpecification" and
    "targetSpecification" to point out the specifications in which the
    source "SpecObject" elements and the target "SpecObject" elements connected by
    the "specRelations" are located.

    Note that having these associations in place would also greatly increase performance of ReqIF tool

    An additional constraint should be added to the RelationGroup section that defines that the "specObject" elements
    connected by the "specRelations" must be referenced by a (SpecHierarchy element) of the respective specification.
