I am working as Rational DOORS Support since 2014 . We have a huge DOORS database around 2Tb which is also mirrored in order to increase the tasks on it like reporting ,DXL develop , Requirements Management and Test Management. Also in relation with Customers we use different exchange methods: Reqif, XLS,DSF, PDF ,XML files , so a large number of possibilities for information's and communications exchanges.

We use DOORS for aerospace applications. I'm a systems engineer and we are customers of IBM.

We use it to manage requirements. For the defense projects, we basically do a waterfall design methodology. So, we input the customer's requirements at the top level, and we flow down through all of the design requirements and the testing requirements. We keep it all managed through DOORS.

The primary use for the product is requirements management. That is essentially prioritizing and planning product delivery.

We had a large number of requirements coming in as a federal contractor and we put them in DOORS. We did exports from that to map those requirements to what we were doing and the architecture that we were building. We did that in MagicDraw, which we attempted to integrate with DOORS.

My primary use case is for the development and management of requirements, traceability of requirements up and down the architecture chain, and verification.

I am a consultant and this is one of the solutions that my company uses to help our clients. Rational DOORS is used to help our customers with system engineering. I use it to design complex systems like trains and cars. DOORS is used to collect all of the requirements for these big systems and then we try to organize the requirements. We make sure that the system functions in compliance with the requirements.

Our primary use case of this solution is mainly to manage all of the requirements, from the user requirements to the system requirements to the sub-system requirements. Also to manage traceability, the baseline, and the different baselines of the requirement.

I use DOORS for capturing a system requirement and subsystem requirement. I also use it for recording a system of architecture.
