The Extracting Constraint from Requirement functionality provides the ability to verify Requirements easier when trying to prove the assertion is true (or false). A glossary mechanism extracts the constraint directly from the Requirement text. If you want to create constraints and associate them with requirements automatically, you can use the extract Constraint from Requirement text functionality.

To extract Constraint value from Requirement text

  1. Use the Requirements term glossary in Requirement text.
  2. Create the satisfy relationship between the specific value of design element and requirement.
  3. Extract Constraint from Requirement text.

Creating the satisfy relationship

The specific value of the design element must satisfy the Requirement. As shown below, the distanceOnQuickCharge value of the Hight-voltage Battery Block satisfies the Quick change mode distance Requirement.

The Hight-voltage Battery Block satisfies the Quick change mode distance Requirement.

Extracting Constraint from Requirement

To extract a Constraint from a Requirement

  1. Right-click a value property in the compartment area of the design element shape.
  2. Select Tools > Extract Constraint From Requirement.
    The constraint is created automatically with a value and condition term defined in the Requirement.

In the example below, the text "at least 1500" of the Quick change mode distance Requirement is automatically parsed to "distanceOnQuickCharge >= 70" and solved as a constraint.

Creating the constraint directly from value property by using the Extract Constraint From Requirement command.

After selecting the Extract Constraint From Requirement command, the constraint {distanceOnQuickCharge >=70.0} is automatically created. It satisfies the requirement text "at least 70".
