Obsolete Requirements
« on: January 17, 2007, 09:13:56 am »
Can anyone suggest the best way to map a requirement to another that it has superceded.

I have tried using the trace connector but it does not show up in the relationship matrix (RM).  I've also created a relationship in the RM but that does not show up on the diagram!!!

Any ideas or recommendations?

Thanks in advance

Cliff

What EA version/build - both actions work fine for me on 6.5/802?

Don't forget «trace» are Dependencies so don't appear by default.

Thanks for the response.

I'm using 802 as well. What do you mean by Don't forget «trace» are Dependencies so don't appear by default.

I'm quite new to EA so forgive the question if it is daft. ;D

You need to set up the Relationship Matrix so it displays exactly what you need.

In this case, you set the Source and Relationship Types to "Requirement" and the Link Type to Dependency.

Also, the browser buttons need to point to the appropriate part of the model.

Once you have this settings, you may save it as a Matrix Profile.

1. Setup the Matrix
2. Right-click in the heading section
3. Profiles > Save as a New Profile
4. See in Resources Pane

Whenever you need this matrix again, just open it from Resources - Matrix Profile.
