Many times the same Requirements are used for multiple Projects. Atlas provides the ability to reuse requirements by defining them once centrally, and connecting (synchronizing) them with other Projects.
Agile teams move quickly, incrementally adding new capability sprint after sprint. The agile delivery team is dependent on requirement information to assure priorities / expectations are clearly understood upfront.When the project milestone planning (content, priority, purpose, and timing) side is not ready, the delivery team is left to make assumptions to fill in the gaps. This practice can lead to misaligned expectations and rework. Those on the business side need to align their milestone planning with the delivery team's sprints.Atlas Requirement Date Planning enables Atlas users to define specific definition dates for features, and measure / track against those timeframes. By defining and tracking the project milestones, Atlas users can align their work with the delivery team, assuring business needs are available when requested by engineering.
The Date Type User Defined Attribute type allows Administrators to create any date value for their projects.
A new Diagram Requirement Type allows you to create diagrams instead of text descriptions for your Requirements. The Diagram Requirement Type is designated with a tree icon in the Requirement Tree.
