The intelligent requirements analyser.

The #1 Tool for Software Requirements Analysis

One-click backlog analysis

automated requirements analysis - with ScopeMaster

ScopeMaster is requirements magic

Analysis at Scale

For product owners and business analysts

Discover what your requirements are really saying.  Avoid potential misinterpretations.

“ScopeMaster is a game changer, it’s awesome, and I continue to be blown away by what it does. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I wish I’d had ScopeMaster 22 years ago”

Ian Londesbrough, Software Development Professional

Insightful Visualisations

Detailed requirements quality assessment

Tests the requirements

Requirements Tested

For product owners and B.A.s

Every word of every requirement is examined and tested against over 350 static rules for requirements quality.  This is static requirements analysis.  ScopeMaster then performs dynamic tests on each requirement to cross reference it against all others in the set. This level of scrutiny is very time consuming to perform manually and will save considerable time in refining a requirements backlog. 

Auto-generated Functional Tests

For Testers and Test Managers

ScopeMaster interprets the user stories and generates essential functional tests (as pseudo code)  instantly to supercharge your DevOps performance.

Requirements Quality Assurance

Know your backlog quality

For Software Leaders and Test Managers

Discover the quality of your backlog.  ScopeMaster is a static analyser of software requirements, just like SonarQube or Codacy are for code.  Get your requirements into good shape before investing in coding.

Professional Software Sizing

For Software Leaders and Project Managers

Know the real functional size of your teams’ work in ISO standard functional size measurements.  Say goodbye to wasteful debates about story points or game-able estimates.  This is the key to answering the question “when will it be done?”

How it works

ScopeMaster® is an intelligent tool for software requirements analysis.  It reads requirements text and performs time-consuming analysis work for you. It parses, interprets, tests, cross-references and even estimates users stories. It finds potential problems such as: ambiguities, duplicates, omissions, inconsistencies and complexities.  ScopeMaster® makes transparent use of Artificial Intelligence (NLP) to accelerate analysis whilst ensuring consistent results.

Static Requirements Analysis

ScopeMaster analyses requirements in a similar way that sonarQube and others analyse code.

10x ROI in 2 months typically

ScopeMaster® will typically find, and help you fix, 30 – 60% of all requirements issues, many times faster than manual analysis. ScopeMaster® is also the first tool ever to automate functional sizing from requirements (both COSMIC Function Points and IFPUG FP). 

Works with your existing workflow

Built-in integration for popular tools such as Jira and Azure DevOps.  A REST API allows flexible integration with any tool.

Harry, Principal Software Consultant, UK

“This is ground-breaking, truly amazing”

Simon Clements, Bluefruit Software

“…incredibly useful and ridiculously fast”

Jeff, CEO , Software Quality Organisation, USA

“I would be shocked if this didn’t improve development team productivity by at least 10%”

Lonnie Franks, Project Assurance Expert

“…not only does it interpret the requirements but it actually writes the detail specifications, which can then be used as test cases”

Professor Alain Abran, University of Québec (Canada)

“Scopemaster doesn’t just help find the requirements defects but helps educate authors to prevent them in future!”

Lonnie Franks, Project Assurance Expert

“This is of great potential benefit for the requirements community as well as the sizing community.  I share your excitement.”

Professor Alain Abran, University of Québec (Canada)

“It is much harder to remove defects from requirements and design that it is from source code. Your tool does a great job!”

Capers Jones, Namcook Analytics LLC

“ScopeMaster is a really interesting tool that uses AI to help with software projects!”

Paul Boudreau, Author of Applying Artificial Intelligence to Project Management

“The main benefit (that I found with) ScopeMaster is fixing problems with minimal time and effort… and it was easy and fun to use.”

Lonnie Franks, Project Assurance Expert

“Unique and very impressive”

RF, BA lead at global charity

I think it’s amazing, it does so many things, it’s a great tool.
