Requirements Authoring Tool (RAT) is an assistant helping authors during the demanding process of authoring requirements. It is also the perfect assistant for System Engineers or Business Analysts while they are writing their requirements. RAT uses a set of agreed upon patterns and leads you, step by step, suggesting the next term of your requirement always ensuring the right grammar.

Once a pattern has been selected, RAT shows its structure and an example of use. The author only has to select the right terms, with the right semantics, thus ensuring that the right grammar has been followed, and that the proper information has been provided (including all the needed details).

RAT implements an IntelliSense way of writing. This technique, as experienced within the well-known © Microsoft Visual Studio, provides an accurate way of creating requirements while writing is also speeded up.

 Quality "on the fly"

All the quality information currently reported by RQA is also generated, «on the fly»  by RAT, thus reducing even more the time needed for V&V, peer-review, double checking…  In other words, «Right the first time».
Among other metrics, the quality information reported by RAT includes the detection of inconsistences, coupling requirements, ambiguous requirements, non-atomic requirements, use of the wrong verb tense, mode or voice, consistent use of measurement units…
