Assign an analysis category to a project document or a covering link between documents. For example, you can specify that a project document is a specification document, that a covering document describes the solution for the specification, and that the covering link between the documents specifies the implementation relationship between the documents.

Assigning a Category to a Document

Complete the following steps to assign a category to a project document.

  1. Select a document on the Project pane of the Configuration dialog box.
  2. On the Details tab, select the Category variable from the Variable pull-down menu.
  3. Select one of the following categories from the Value pull-down menu:
    • Requirements
    • Specification
    • Design
    • Tests
    • Coding
  4. Click OK to apply the changes to the project and close the Configuration dialog box.

You can also assign a category to a folder you add to the project on the Project pane. The category you assign to a folder also applies to any document the folder contains and for which you have not already assigned a category. If the folder contains a document for which you have already assigned a category, the document retains its category even if you assign a different category to the folder.

Use the Overall Quality pane of the Management view to review the coverage of requirements for each document category in the project. When you select a categorized document in the Management view, the Information pane lists the type and category of the document.

Assigning a Category to a Link

Complete the following steps to assign a category to a link.

  1. Select a covering link between two documents on the Project Configuration pane of the Project pane.
  2. Click the Covers tab.
  3. Select one of the following categories from the Category pull-down menu:
    • Satisfy
    • Validate
    • Implements
  4. Click OK to apply the changes to the project and close the Configuration dialog box.

The category name appears on a link on the Project Overview pane of the Management view.

Unassigning a Category

To unassign a category from a document or folder, select the blank option from the Value pull-down menu on the Details tab of the Project pane. To unassign a category from a link, select the blank option from the Category pull-down menu on the Covers tab.
