The complexity of entering tenders for large high-speed train projects required Talgo to have a Requirements Management tool , which would allow the company to maintain accurate traceability of each of the product development processes.
The IBM Doors tool implementation process took approximately 3 months to complete. “ Although the initial acceptance and performance process took time to mature. However, the renewal of the product development process and the implementation of clear rules in the two years after the initial rollout contributed a lot of value. A value that continues to bear fruit today ”explains Talgo Project Coordinator José María Buendía.
One of the main challenges to be solved was to link the initial customer requirements with the final design responses. Capturing, tracking, analyzing and managing changes in the real-time requirements of each of the processes that make up the construction of a high-speed train was another challenge to be solved. And finally, it was necessary to find a tool that met the standards established by the industry and by Talgo’s clients.
Itera proposed the implementation of IBM Doors that met the needs and expectations of customers. The highly customizable nature of the tool as well as the ability to capture, track, analyze and manage changes in requirements allowed Talgo to position itself as a world benchmark in the railway industry.
“Itera Process was the company that offered us the best implementation deadlines and methodology”
