When working with (standardized) specifications or requirements, the main difficulties with which people are confronted are:
- Specifications are locked in text documents or within one application
- It is time consuming to find and apply specifications
- Risk of loss in quality and rework due to copy-pasting between applications
By creating and publishing a Specifications Library on a Linked Data Platform, your standard set of requirements becomes available, applicable and reusable across all the applications within your application landscape. Once published as Linked Data, you could also link your standardized requirements to your Object Type Library – this drastically decreases time required to apply your specifications to their corresponding subjects. Next to your Object Type Library, you could also link to other published sets of requirement (i.e. ISO standards) – simplifying your requirement allocation process even further.
