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.
