Update Reference Requirement Links from Imported File
After importing requirement links from a file, update links to reference requirements for the model. When you convert the links to reference requirement links, the links are contained in the model in an SLREQX file to make full use of Requirements Toolbox™ functionality.
Import Requirement Links from Word File
Before running the code, follow these steps to prepare your workspace.
Note: Importing or linking requirements from an imported file is only supported on Windows. A web-based Microsoft® Office file stored in SharePoint or OneDrive will not work. Save this file and supporting files in a local folder to continue.
1. Open the Microsoft Word file
Functional_Requirements.docx with the requirements listed. Highlight the requirement to link. For example, highlight these lines.
1.1.2 Flight Computer ID: 25 Description: Aircraft shall provide a flight computer to autonomously conduct safe flight operations from launch to recovery
2. Open the
model = systemcomposer.openModel("reqImportExample");
3. In the model, select the
FlightComputer component to which to link the requirement. Right-click the
FlightComputer component and select Requirements > Link to Selection in Word. Keep the Word file
Functional_Requirements.docx open for the next steps.
Before requirement links are integrated within the model, the links depend on the source document, the Word file
Functional_Requirements.docx. To view the requirement links, open the Requirements Perspective from the bottom-right corner of the
reqImportExample.slx model palette.
Update Links to Reference Requirements
Use these steps to update requirement links to integrate with and be referenced from within the model.
1. Export the
reqImportExample.slx model and save to an external file:
exportedSet = systemcomposer.exportModel("reqImportExample"); SaveToExcel("exportedModel",exportedSet);
2. Use the external file
exportedModel.xls to import requirement links into another model:
structModel = ImportModelFromExcel("exportedModel.xls","Components","Ports", ... "Connections","PortInterfaces","RequirementLinks"); structModel.readTableFromExcel systemcomposer.importModel("reqNewExample",structModel.Components, ... structModel.Ports,structModel.Connections,structModel.Interfaces,structModel.RequirementLinks);
3. To integrate the requirement links to the new model
reqNewExample.slx, update references within the model.
4. Open the Requirements Perspective from the bottom right corner of the model palette to view the new
Flight Computer requirement on the
FlightComputer component by setting View to Requirements.
This requirement is saved in a requirement set
Functional_Requirements.slreqx and used directly in the requirement link. Change the View to Links to view the requirement link.
