Cross-project Requirements Management and Issue Tracking with in-STEP BLUE
In 2011, PLATH began to implement in-STEP BLUE as an extension for an ERP-based project management solution. Focal point of the first phase was Requirements Management and Issue Tracking for approximately 25 concurrent projects. In addition, processes for Risk Management, Lesson Learned, and Configuration Management were introduced. Further expansion is planned for the future.
Projects realized by PLATH include product development in electronics hardware and software, as well as projects for customer integration and customer-specific solutions. Furthermore, all requirements arising from client offerings are managed by in-STEP BLUE.
The main challenge for the introduction was to create a solution that integrates different approaches arising from individual needs of management, customers, and employees.
