Northridge wanted to improve the granularity of functional requirements without an increase in the work required to generate them. The company adopted Storyboarding for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System, a solution from Microsoft Visual Studio Industry Partner stpsoft that runs within Microsoft Office Visio software. Storyboarding enables software development teams to visually define and capture requirements through user-interface and workflow storyboarding - and upload that information into Visual Studio Team System Team Foundation Server as "Work items." Analysts and project managers can create comprehensive functional specifications in one-quarter of the time that it would otherwise take, with an increased level of detail resulting in 25 to 35 percent greater productivity for developers, project managers, and quality-assurance personnel throughout the application lifecycle.
