Create Summary is a feature available in the ValiAssistant. It takes a selected requirement or requirements, analyzes the requirement text, and creates a summary document in the Analysis module. This contains an overview paragraph based on the content of the requirements as well as lists out the main performance parameters. Additionally, this text can then be manipulated and edited in the analysis module. This feature accelerates the process of creating a performance document requirements, saving time and reducing the need for manual work to extract this information.
Here how it looks like:
Currently, the Create Summary feature can be accessed through the ValiAssistant from 2 different locations, while in the Requirements Module. Additionally, depending on where you access it, you will receive different behaviour:
If Create Summary is started from the top bar button, the currently selected Specification or Section will be processed
If Create Summary is started from the requirements table quick action button, the currently selected requirement(s) will be processed
If Create Summary is started from the connections graph quick action button, the currently selected requirement(s) will be processed
Steps to Improve
Create Summary is composed by 2 main stages: “Pre-loading” and “Confirmation”. These stages are detailed bellow.
1 - Pre-loading
After triggering Create Summary, the user is informed of exactly how many requirements will be processed by the summary creation process and decide if they want to continue.
2 - Confirmation
If there are no errors with the requirements, you will see this page signifying that the summary was successfully created. You can then access the document easily using the link provided.
