Abstract:Purpose: The consequent alignment of organizations efforts on requirements towards customer satisfaction sets out the fundament for corporate success. To achieve this objective; the entire life cycle of a product (PLC – Product Life Cycle) has to be considered as relevant for product development. Within the PLC; requirements appear in different instances. Looking comprehensively at the product development process; it seems straightforward to document the information collected during the life cycles of different products and to make it accessible for future development projects.

Approach: This paper presents an approach to reasonably consider; document and link requirements with requirement-relevant instances in order to achieve an improvement to product development. This approach ensures the use of an up-to-date requirement set at each stage of the entire PLC by instantaneously taking upcoming information into account.

Originality/Value: Although the consequent structuring of requirement-relevant instances allows the selective allocation by relevance; all information is documented so that this provides advantages to subsequent projects. With the “reuse” of requirements; this information comes into focus again and the consequent and structured documentation offers the possibility to improve the initial requirement set and therefore to start with a better information base.

Findings: Employing a continuous consideration of requirements; today’s problems in product development may be resolved and the development process may be adjusted to future needs.
