Find Inconsistencies

Find Inconsistencies is a feature available in ValiAssistant. It takes a set of requirements, analyzes the requirement text, and identifies inconsistencies or duplications between requirements. These inconsistencies and duplicates can then be edited in the pop-up before exiting the page. This feature automates the process of revising the consistency between requirements, saving time and eliminating the risk of human error from this tedious process.

Here’s how it looks like:


Currently, the Find Inconsistencies feature can be accessed through the ValiAssistant from 1 location, while in the Requirements Module.

Location: ValiAssistant action button at the top bar - Brings you to the ValiAssistant menu

If Find Inconsistencies is started from the top bar button, the Specification or Section that is currently selected will be processed


Steps to Find Inconsistencies

Find Inconsistencies is composed by three main stages: “Pre-loading”, “Review and Edit” and “Confirmation”. These stages are detailed bellow.

1 - Pre-loading

After triggering Find Inconsistencies, the user is informed of exactly how many requirements will be checked by the find inconsistency process and decide if they want to continue.


2 -Review and Edit

At this stage the ValiAssistant has highlighted inconsistencies between 2 or several requirements. These inconsistencies are grouped into categories defined the AI integration such as:

  1. Duplicate - where the requriement texts has the same or similar content

  2. Incompatible values - where the requirement text has values that are contradictory in some way.

You can now review the sets of requriements that have been highlighted and edit the text fields accordingly. You cannot delete requirements in this page.

For any changes made, tick the check box on the left of each requirement and press Continue to finalize the edits or cancel to terminate the process.

At this stage the ValiAssistant has suggested  to the selected requirements. You can now compare the new and old requirements and edit the text fields of these new requirements.

You must now also select via the check box on the right which requirements you wish to improve, those that do not have their box ticked will be discarded.

Press Continue to finalize the improvement of these requirements or cancel to terminate the process.

3 - Confirmation

If there are no errors with the requirement modifications, you will see this page signifying that the requirements were successfully updated.
