Examples and How To

Migrating Requirements Management Interface Data to Simulink® Requirements™

This example demonstrates the basic steps to update Requirements Management Interface (RMI) links to the format used by the new Simulink Requirements interface.

Configure RMI for Interaction with Microsoft Office Applications and IBM Rational DOORS Software

Configure the RMI to communicate with third-party applications that support requirements documents.

Specify Storage for Requirements Links

By default, the Requirements Management Interface (RMI) stores requirements links in a separate.req file.

Save Requirements Links in External Storage

The Requirements Management Interface (RMI) stores externally stored requirements links in a file whose name is based on the model file.

Load Requirements Links from External Storage

Load requirements links from an external .req file.

Move Internally Stored Requirements Links to External Storage

If you have a model with requirements links that are stored with the model, you can move those links to an external file.

Move Externally Stored Requirements Links to the Model File

If you have a model with requirements links that are stored in an external file, you can move those links to the model file.


Overview of the Requirements Management Interface (RMI)

Explains how to use the RMI to manage links to requirements documents

Requirements Traceability Links

Learn about the uses and characteristics of requirements traceability links.

Selection-Based Linking

Use selection-based linking to create links from a model object to another model object or to an object in a requirements document.

Requirements Link Storage

Learn how external requirements storage works.

External Storage

The first time you create links to requirements in a Simulink® model, the RMI uses your designated storage preference.

Guidelines for External Storage of Requirements Links

Follow these guidelines when storing requirements links in an external file.

Supported Requirements Document Types

The Requirements Management Interface (RMI) supports linking with objects, requirements documents, and locations within documents.

Supported Model Objects for Requirements Linking

Model objects for which you can create requirements links.

Requirements Settings

Manage your Requirements Management Interface (RMI) preferences in the Requirements Settings dialog box.
