“Since I am convinced that successful software development is based on a well-founded requirements analysis, I like to use the special possibilities of objectiF RPM, especially in this area. In the part-time diploma course in computer science and business informatics (an offer from the company mediaproject Dresden in cooperation with the West Saxon University of Applied Sciences in Zwickau), it is important to show students, based on their practical experience, that requirements for SW systems can be modeled and documented effectively and efficiently during the development process using suitable methods – certainly beyond the possibilities of the usual modeling languages (UML or SysML). In addition to the context diagram as an introduction to the project, I particularly appreciate the goal diagram, with which I can point the students’ attention to the important question “Why actually should this particular requirement be realized and what consequences does this have under certain circumstances?”

“The uncomplicated cooperation with microTOOL always inspires me!”

“My cooperation with microTOOL GmbH goes back a long way. For my areas of research and study, current microTOOL products such as in-STEP RED and objectiF RM are of particular interest, mainly because of their integration of project management, requirements management and requirements modeling. My students profit from this cooperation in their daily work, in project work and in preparing term papers and theses.”

Prof. Dr. Margret Stanierowski

Software Engineering, Modeling and Requirements Engineering, University of Applied Sciences Berlin

“I have been using in-STEP BLUE in the Master’s Program “Project Management” for 6 years now, and I am pleased to provide my students with a powerful tool that prepares them for future professional challenges.”
