objectiF RM uses templates to create complex documents. There are templates available for whole documents like requirement specification documents, individual chapters and for presenting artifacts, diagrams, and table evaluations within a chapter. You can use the templates straight away, adapt them, combine them into a new document or supplement them with your own templates.
- Don’t worry about the cover sheet with project information, contents page, index of tables and graphics or the glossary of the document. That is all automatically generated by the chapter templates and updated when the document is generated. This saves valuable time.
- The templates that objectiF RM provides contain text marks to automatically add requirements, goals, stakeholders, use cases, test cases, etc., as well as evaluations and diagrams to the text. You can also set your own text marks. When generating a document, the text marks will be replaced with the current project content, so a generated document always reflects the current development state of your project. (Individually created texts, of course, remain the same when generating a chapter or a document.)
- Templates can be exchanged between projects. Templates ensure that documentation is structured the same in all projects.
- Templates can contain instructions for filling them out that guide the user when creating a document. This way the documents don’t require setup time and training.
The chapters of a document can be edited collaboratively. With a click of the mouse, a finished chapter can be generated into a document’s complete MS Word file.
