The Berlin-based software manufacturer microTOOL releases Version 6.3 of objectiF RPM, a software application for integrated requirements and project management. The new release primarily brings features for more traceability and standardization. Now, not only artifacts, but also entire projects and project templates can be versioned, compared and restored. When creating revisions, it is also possible to individually define which parts of a project are combined to form a baseline. The revisions of entire projects are used for quality assurance and are useful for audits.
The software also offers functions for multi-project management and project portfolio management, especially for Lean Portfolio Management (LPM). LPM is characterized by an agile, iterative approach, collaboration in self-organized teams, lean management and implementation of the strategy in so-called value streams. Budgets and resources can be assigned to these value streams. objectiF RPM supports LPM by allowing you to create value streams, to which you can assign projects or portfolios, as well as costs and employees. These value streams are used to evaluate the continuous value creation of an organization.
SysML block diagrams are available in objectiF RPM for visualizing system functions and system architecture. System building blocks describe a system as a collection of parts which play a certain role in a specific context. Starting with version 6.3 of objectiF RPM, regions can be created to better group blocks, interfaces and other block diagram elements. The contents of these regions are then combined on the product level in so-called packages.
