Intelligent Automation

QVscribe harnesses Natural Language Processing to automatically apply the best requirements analysis tactics by leading industry experts. Automated requirements analysis empowers engineering teams to build faster by identifying errors where they matter most - in the requirements.

QVscribe is a lightweight pragmatic solution that can drive requirements quality improvement.

Quality Analysis

Your assistant for rapidly reviewing requirements in accordance with best practices. QVscribe’s analysis empowers teams with a foundation for confident & on-time project development.

QVscribe checks each requirement for missing or improper use of imperatives, helping you ensure every requirement has a single correct and actionable imperative.

Optional Language

Catch optional language that indicates a constraint “can” or “should” be implemented. Removing unintended optional language improves implementation scope, reducing risk and increasing control.

Weak, Vague, and Subjective Words

Detect slang and ambiguities using our library of vague words. Are there certain words you believe should never make it into a requirements document? Easily enforce clarity for you and your team by configuring the library to include problematic wording for detection.

Data-driven Quality Indicators

QVscribe’s default quality analysis checks for 7 quality indicators: imperatives, negative imperatives, vague wording, optional language, continuances, directives, and universal quantifiers. Each analyzed requirement is given a quality score, identifying the requirements to focus on improving first.

Quality Warnings

Some rules are made to be broken. QVscribe warns you of common quality issues that may be intentional without impacting the requirement's score – giving you the flexibility to determine which requirements truly need attention.

Universal Quantifiers

Words or phrases that generalize a quantity or quality should be used carefully to improve the verifiability of a requirement. QVscribe flags universal quantifiers without impacting the quality score as a warning that the requirement may be unverifiable or untestable unless restated.

Passive Voice

The use of passive voice often introduces two sources of errors. First, passive verbs such as "enhanced" and "strengthened" are notoriously ambiguous. Second, passive voice often describes a constraint on implementation rather than a proper requirement. QVscribe flags passive voice to help ensure you're not describing what must be done to the system, but rather what needs to be done by the system.

Incomplete Sentences

Incomplete sentences can cause a lot of trouble in requirements when critical details of who must do something or what must be done is missing. QVscribe shows a warning when it detects incomplete sentences – bringing attention to the sentences that need more information without affecting the quality score of the requirement.

Unit & Term Consistency

Highlighting Potentially Inconsistent Units & Terminology

Using both imperial and metric systems of units within one document has resulted in some of the most catastrophic project failures ever seen. QVscribe rapidly detects and displays units and terminology to help you verify consistency throughout all requirements. Ensuring that no terminology or units conflicts lead to delays or rework.


Did you know?

According to NASA, the cost to fix errors rises exponentially with each successive phase of the project life-cycle, resulting in up to a 1,000 cost premium for addressing requirement errors at the operations stage. JM Stecklein, Error Cost Escalation Through the Project Life Cycle, NASA, 2004

Fast, Efficient

Requirements Similarity Analysis

Eliminate Redundant and Contradictory Requirements.

Ensuring no two requirements are redundant or contradictory used to entail significant manual effort and cross-checking. Now, QVscribe automatically analyzes each requirement against all others to assess similarity — helping you spot requirements that either need to be updated or deleted.

Enterprise & Team Configurations

Enterprise teams require the very best tools available, and with every new release, QVscribe delivers new capabilities that enhance collaboration and management throughout the requirements engineering process.
