Many development departments would like to be able to hand over complete packages, such as requirements engineering, to a partner and thus gain capacity or pick up speed, as licensing issues are no longer such an issue.
Most requirements engineering tools offer an easy way to export and import content via ReqIF. This offers the chance to pass on entire specifications, functionalities or smaller groupings of requirements. Requirments engineering can thus take place in any IT environment. The processed work packages can then be returned to the project-specific tool environment in their entirety or at defined milestones.
