Module: Analysis

The BA uses the analysis module to organize all requirements and related information information (Stakeholders, Glossary, Solution, Theme, BA, etc.)

The user can generate an analysis automatically from the Project module using the option “Initiate Business Analysis” from the "more" menu.

Analysis Module

The module also allows generating a requirement tree for general requirements. These shortcut options are described in detail in the Q&A section below.

From the "more" dropdow menu the following options are available: Add Stakeholder, Add Critical Success Factor, Add Use Case, Add Theme, Add Glossary, Add Solution, Add Model, Add Business Analysts, Add Agile Requirement, Add Waaterfall Requirement, and Generate Standard Reports.

From the related modules tabs the user can access the following records associated to an analysis:Concerns, User Requirements, Gaps, SOW, Solutions, Themes, Use Cases, Stakeholders, Glossary, Model, CSF, and BA.

FAQs

Question Answer
How to add records associated to an analysis?

The modules Stakeholder, (CSF) Critical Success Factor, Use Case, Theme, Solution, Glossary, Model, and Business Analyst (BA) are related to the Analysis module. An analysis can contain >=0 stakeholders, solutions, BAs, etc.

To add an stakeholder to an analysis select the option "Add Stakeholder" from the "more" menu. The operation is identical to add records in the remaining related modules: Add Critical Success Factor, Add Use Case, Add Theme, Add Glossary, Add Solution, Add Model, and Add Business Analysts.

(Note: If the user adds any of these records from the list view in each module, he will have to assign the record to an analysis manually. The "Add..." options described above assign the record automatically.)

How do we use the option "add general requirement"?

The option "Add general requirement" creates two placeholders automatically:

Leverforce ConcerniterationLeverforce User Requirement

The BA can use these placeholders to skip right into the definition of a concern or of a user requirement without having to assign them to a use case and an activity. The BA can also skip these definitions and complete the subsequent requirement iterations:

Leverforce ConcerniterationLeverforce User ReuirmentiterationLeverforce GapsiterationLeverforce Statement of Work

Note: This option also generates a Use Case and an Activity placeholder. Until these placeholders are edited, users are not able to assign existing records to them. Nevertheless, users can add new records to them via the "more" option 

How do I export all increments or the statement of work as to a UML modelling tool? The user can download a UML compliant XMI file containing all increments or the statement of work related to the analysis. This XMI generates a use case for each requirement in any UML compliant modelling tool (Modelio, Sparks Enterprise Architect, etc.)

How and when  to generate the standard reports for an analysis?

If the analysis has been generated automatically by using the option "Initiate Business Analysis", all standard reports have been created already and the checkbox option Standard Report is set to "Yes". If the analysis has been generated manually (by adding an analysis to an existing project, for example, then the checkbox is set to no and the reports have to be generated manually by using the option "Generate Standard Reports" from the "more" dropdown menu
