CARES – Computer-Aided Requirements Engineering Software is a cloud-based requirements engineering (RE) tool allowing Swiss administrations to create WTO-conform procurement documents towards their business processes.

With CARES, authorities will be able to:

  • Document and model their business processes (BP) as recommended by Swiss E-Government standards
  • Use the BP represented in BPMN as a basis for Requirements Engineering (RE)
  • Enrich the process documentation in case BPMN would not be sufficient for RE
  • Generate a complete requirements report that can be published as a request for proposal

The institute will create a software providing a methodology that will allow public authorities to do RE and to submit their WTO-conform requirements specifications via a portal. The developed software will be sufficiently generic to allow private companies or other organizations to do their RE towards their business processes in conformance with the WTO regulations.
