Moving From A Paper-based RTM To ComplianceQuest Requirements Traceability And Product Risk Solution

Requirement Traceability Matrix (RTM) is vital for managing and tracking project requirements. While a paper-based system is widely used for various data management tasks, relying solely on it can pose significant limitations in effectively managing complex projects. It can serve as a basic tracking tool for requirement traceability, but it falls short in meeting the demands of modern project management. As projects grow in size and complexity, maintaining and updating a paper-based RTM becomes increasingly tedious and error-prone.

Additionally, these outdated methods lack built-in collaboration features, making it difficult for multiple team members to work simultaneously on the RTM, leading to version control issues. With this method of creating RTM, organizations will have limited functionalities that affect analysis and reporting capabilities, limiting the ability to derive meaningful insights from the data. Paper-based RTMs lack real-time integration with other project management tools, impeding seamless synchronization and reducing overall efficiency.

Organizations should consider adopting specialized requirement management tools that offer real-time collaboration, advanced analysis capabilities, seamless integration, and scalability to mitigate these challenges.
