Abstract: ReqIF roundtrip in the supply chain for shared documents between OEM, Tier1, and Tier2 stays the biggest challenge when using different RM tools and addons by the stakeholders. Not only the formatting issues but also loss of information may be a consequence of an unsuccessful roundtrip process. Based on continuous Lessons Learned a major focus is necessary on the set-up of each new customer project for smooth exchange of the development documentation.
