Requirements Collaboration Network

The End-to-End Solution for Integrated Requirements Management in the Value Chain

Requirements Collaboration Network

Cesonia’s Requirements Collaboration Network enables the simple, fast and secure exchange of requirements and digital specifications while being able to collaborate in real-time across the entire supply chain.

The planning, coordination, and tracking of projects and collaboration in complex and distributed supply chains has always been an organizational challenge. This also applies to requirements management as one of the first steps in product development. While a few years ago a single system, “DOORS Classic” from IBM, was used throughout the industry, the emergence of similar systems has increased massively in the recent past. Inefficient as well as lengthy and manual processes along the supply chain are also extremely error-prone, resulting, among other things, in non-transparent cooperation.

Cesonia allows processes to be optimized by integrating various requirements management systems and merging them across company boundaries. This applies in particular to the cooperation between purchasing and development and ultimately external development partners. The current process, on the other hand, consists of a large number of manual process steps and is therefore not only extremely error-prone but also inefficient, slow, and susceptible to information security gaps. It lacks transparency and traceability.
