QVscribe is for you if you’re looking to reduce risk by implementing processes that effectively identify and eliminate requirements errors.

Poorly Written Requirements
Come with a High Cost

Companies will spend just over 40% of their new project development on unnecessary or poorly specified requirements and errors, accounting for 70% to 85% of rework costs.

A Tool That Benefits Your Whole Team

As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, we are in a new era that integrates communication with automated practices and traditional methods. This fusion can create a more effective and successful project development team by producing a higher level of requirement consistency.

QVscribe establishes measurable standards for authoring and reviewing requirements, automatically checking for quality and compliance. This repeatable process frees your most valuable team members to focus on intent, not syntax, and ultimately helps achieve organizational goals.

Automation Frees Time for Innovation

One challenge with a complex project is the increased risk that ambiguity, misinterpretation, and assumptions in the requirements can easily result in solutions that do not meet the end-user’s need or the initial intent. Starting a project with flawed requirements can easily result in time wasted working on a flawed design.

We created a software tool that ensures your engineering teams know exactly what they’re expected to deliver. QVscribe is not intended to replace reviews but instead decreases the amount of effort because the bulk of the editing and verifying is done by our software.

Why Should I Use QVscribe?

Save Time and Money

In each project there may be thousands of requirements and a multi-million-dollar budget – a simple error in specs can result in millions and months lost.

Establish a Clear, Repeatable Requirements Process

QVscribe helps engineering teams codify institutional knowledge into their requirements specification processes and ensure the testability of each requirement. The software can detect duplicate requirements, verify correctness, index the domain-specific terminology, and validate accurate measurement units are used consistently.

QVscribe’s software is built on accepted best practices for writing requirements, using Natural Language Processing and INCOSE rules to provide pertinent feedback in seconds. Our software applies industry standards, writing principles, and preferred structure, plus is customizable to your corporate guidelines.

See what our customers say

“Erroneous requirements contribute to 70 percent of errors found during a system development project in the aerospace industry today. Correct requirements are the need of the hour. QVscribe is an automated way of analyzing requirements for correctness. The quality metrics based on a user-defined library of words brings an early detection of errors which can improve quality upfront. QVscribe has an easy to use interface and automation that makes it a very handy tool for the engineer.”

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.
