Requirements Management for UML/SysML engineers
Reqtify requirements engineering tool integrated with ARTiSAN Studio

Cheltenham, UK and Paris, France – March 14, 2006. ARTiSAN Software Tools, a global leader for UML
2 and SysML-based real-time systems and software modeling tools, and TNI-Software, a leader in system
design tools for the embedded software industry, have announced the availability of a unique, proven and
easy-to-use solution for engineers who need to manage SysML requirements or implement a process that
mixes UML/SysML and textual requirements. The solution is based on the integration of Reqtify, TNI-
Software's requirements traceability product and ARTiSAN Studio, ARTiSAN’s integrated suite of
UML/SysML tools. This integrated solution will be distributed and supported by ARTiSAN Software Tools.

Marc Frouin, CEO of TNI-Software, stated: “Model-based approaches are now widely deployed in the
embedded software industry. As a consequence, engineers are looking for an innovative approach to
requirements management for mixed environments that combine requirements modeling as defined in
SysML, textual requirements, and model-based implementations. They expect requirements capture,
traceability, impact analysis and report generation to be seamlessly and flexibly integrated within their
authoring environment. The integration of Reqtify and ARTiSAN Studio provides an innovative, industry-
proven solution to the problem”.

SysML provides an industry-standard method for representing textual requirements inside a UML model.
Often requirements originate in the modeling phase of a project. The ability to work with requirements “at the
coalface'” increases an organization’s ability to define the right requirements earlier in the lifecycle by
associating them with design elements in a rich UML/SysML modeling context.

With its repository-based architecture, ARTiSAN Studio is a perfect environment for both the communication
of requirements in context and enhanced, team-based collaboration. In conjunction with Reqtify, it delivers
the bridging technology for importing and exporting requirements to and from external sources, including files
such as Microsoft Word and Excel and databases such as Telelogic DOORS and IBM Rational RequisitePro.

In addition, Reqtify can act as a “broker” in support of a full “V” model by allowing engineers to link
requirements to test tools such as Mercury TestDirector and IPL Cantata++ or trace to other tools such as
MathWorks’ Simulink.

“It is inherently easier to represent a textual requirement in a UML model than it is to represent a model in an
external Requirements Management (RM) tool,” said Jeremy Goulding President and CEO of ARTiSAN
Software Tools. “The ability to drag requirements on to diagrams and browse their relationships to other
model elements is something our users have been crying out for. The SysML Requirements Profile in
ARTiSAN Studio 6.1, together with Reqtify, gives our users the best of both worlds by allowing them to mix
well-established processes based on textual requirements with emerging diagrammatic modeling techniques.
SysML will soon be standardized and, in partnership with TNI-Software, we are delivering significant
productivity advances to the synchronization and analysis of requirements traceability within the UML/SysML
