- World’s Leading Requirements Management Software Enhances
Course Content for Institute of Systems Science -
MALMÖ, Sweden – July 27, 2004 – Telelogic (Stockholm Exchange: TLOG), the
leading global provider of solutions for advanced systems and software development,
today announced that the company has donated its sophisticated DOORS® software, the
world’s most popular and proven requirements management (RM) tool, to the National
University of Singapore’s Institute of System’s Science (ISS). The gift of software
license fees and consulting services to the university is worth over US $640,000.
Under the one-year agreement, ISS will receive 50 concurrent seats of Telelogic DOORS
for teaching purposes to enhance content and institute best RM practices for its advanced
courses in Software Requirements Engineering. In addition, students would be expected
to use DOORS for requirements managements in their respective independent graduate
level engineering projects.
“Telelogic’s robust approach to requirements engineering and management was perfectly
suited to underscore our course contents,” said Dr. Pallab Saha, software engineering
specialist at the National University of Singapore – Institute of Systems Science.
“Incorporating DOORS into the curriculum also allows students take back their
experience with a world class RM tool and introduce best practices for requirements
managements into their respective organizations upon graduation.
“Telelogic personnel helped us understand the tool through a formal presentation and they
also made an attempt to understand our unique needs,” he added. “This allowed us to
understand how we could use DOORS to enhance our course content and how it would fit
into the overall course structure and software engineering practices that we teach.”
According to Dr. Saha, the Institute of Systems Science was initially attracted to the
requirements management framework of DOORS and its integration with leading
software engineering tools. As ISS currently covers the unified process as the

development methodology, it felt a comprehensive RM tool such as this would best
illustrate the traceability between requirements and design. The institute would also link
requirements to the validation and verification phases to complete the development cycle.
“The concepts and curriculum being taught at the National University of Singapore’s
prestigious Institute of Systems Science underscore the importance of requirementsdriven
development and innovation,” said Anders Lidbeck, president and CEO of
Telelogic. “It is with the greatest pleasure that Telelogic makes this contribution to the
education of today’s software engineering students and to the future they will create.”

About Telelogic DOORS
As the world's leading requirements management tool, Telelogic DOORS 7.0 captures,
links, traces, analyzes, and manages information to ensure a project’s compliance with
specified requirements and standards. Introduced in the summer of 2003, DOORS 7.0
revolutionizes systems and software projects with Dynamic Requirements Management,
the practice of effectively managing an evolving set of requirements within a complex
incremental development project.
DOORS 7.0 features: Intelligent Traceability to ensure that all product teams are using
the right requirements for the increment or version they are working on; Proactive
Suspect Links to ensure that each team member automatically knows about changes made
by another; and Enterprise Change Proposal System to enable users to submit, review and
