QVscribe is for you if you’re a decision maker looking for a tool to empower your organization to increase your effectiveness with product development.

Poorly Written Requirements
Cost Time and Money

68% of companies suffer from poor requirements specification practices. They spend 50% more money and 40% more time to deliver products, resulting in a 60% cost premium on projects with poor requirements.

Use Your Team’s Time Effectively with a Consistent Process

How can you ensure that what you build is what you intended to build? It all starts with clearly articulated requirements.

QVscribe’s responsive analysis ensures compliance with best practices and industry standards. Our software automates the line-by-line checks for errors using Natural Language Processing and INCOSE rules, verifying the requirement is required, is a single thought, and does not use unacceptable vague language.

There are a limited number of employees in your organization who have instinctive institutional knowledge and understand the requirements and the systems being designed. If your best people are spending hours writing and reviewing requirements, it decreases productivity and engagement.

Better Requirements Lead to Higher ROI

Well-written requirements generate better ROI for your organization. They will accurately reflect the resources you need to complete a project while ensuring adequate budget, time, and support. Automation means you can get more done with your invaluable human resources, which is extremely important as you try to stay competitive, scale your organization, and integrate with new technology.

Why Should I Implement QVscribe?

Empower Your Team

Complex projects use QVscribe to collaborate across multiple teams to ensure those project requirements are clear, the terminology is consistent, and all teams have a shared understanding of project requirements and meaning. QVscribe’s terminology consistency analysis gives teams a library of all terms used, helping them correct potential issues before they affect other teams in the project. As projects evolve, teams use customized analysis reports to ensure proper recordkeeping and justification of revisions.

Optimize Your Requirements Process

QVscribe unifies the art and science of writing requirements. Our software encourages subject matter experts to validate their requirements writing expertise and then set standards within the tool to emulate those competencies. QVscribe will help your teams establish seamless workflows, effective writing, and optimize processes so they can focus their efforts on the later stages of product development and achieve what you intend to build.

By removing ambiguity and misinterpretation right from the outset, you can avoid the most common cause of project failure – poor requirements.

“QVscribe is helping Shell engineers write high-quality requirements to ensure clarity across our projects and supply chain, which significantly reduces the number of questions and clarifications from our suppliers and enables more efficient execution of projects.”

– James Haug, General Manager, System Engineering – Global Discipline Head of Quality, Engineering and Asset Support

How does QVscribe work?

Requirements are imperative statements that assert that something must be done, or that a project outcome holds a specific attribute. Imperative phrases such as “shall” or “must” are an essential ingredient to make it clear that a requirement is, well, required! QVscribe checks each requirement for the existence of an acceptable imperative, ensuring it is actionable.

We all strive to have effective requirements that are efficiently written for robust and powerful products. A quality requirement avoids using descriptive phrases that cannot be measured. QVscribe finds problematic phrases like these and provides guidance to help you and your team avoid misinterpretation, testing troubles, and rework.

Quality Analysis

QVscribe’s Quality Analysis is your expert requirements assistant. The analysis checks for compliance with standards such as the INCOSE Guide for Writing Requirements and ensures every detail is accounted for, including proper use of imperatives, clear language, and other industry best practices.

Natural Language Processing is used for the automatic detection of incomplete sentences and uses of passive voice. Using an active voice in your requirements makes it clear who, or what part of the system, is responsible for meeting requirements. Advances in our incomplete sentence logic make it easy to identify problematic requirements that are missing either a subject or a required action.

QVscribe gives you a comprehensive view of your document without leaving your requirements management tool. The dashboard view allows you to understand the progress and see any underlying warnings throughout the document.

null

Unit & Term Consistency

Automatic detection, enumeration, and classification of all measurement units and noun phrases help users verify their correct use and location in the requirements. Avoid costly errors by ensuring consistency across your document, regardless of how many authors have worked on it.

Since QVscribe lists your terms, you can find inconsistencies and opportunities to consolidate the information. For example, if you reference a “patient”, a “physician”, and a “user” in the same document, a reader may be left wondering whether the user of a specific feature is intended to be the patient or the physician. An automatically generated list makes it easy to see how different terms are used throughout the requirement set and improves overall consistency.

null

Similarity

QVscribe automatically identifies requirements that are similar. This feature makes it easy to spot missing information, duplicate requirements, and contradictions by showing you the probable suspects and highlighting the differences.

The user controls the matching threshold so they can right-size the results based on the total number of requirements and how deep they choose to go.

null

Customizable Configurations

QVscribe’s configurations adjust to suit your needs. By enabling or disabling different Problem Types and adding or removing specific terms from the default lists, your leaders can standardize the language used across your organization.

Configurations are automatically updated across all users, even when accessing QVscribe through different Requirement Management Tools.

null

Colour-Coded Error Detection

QVscribe gives a simple way to identify priorities and processes to correct requirement issues. It is an efficient and user-friendly way to author requirements on the go or to get an overview of an entire document’s quality.
