Designers can directly comment and graphically annotate designs in the web-browser. In addition, designer can link tasks and use semantic links to trigger further actions from their model reviews.
SECollab allows project managers to federate designs from multiple tools within the same web-based environment. Examples of such data are requirement projects (e.g. from IBM DOORS), engineering models (UML, SysML, NAF, etc.).
Designs gathered on the SECollab platform are rendered and become fully navigable directly in the web-browser. Reviewers are able to view and browse them without the need for a tool license to open any of the supported formats.
SECollab exposes the individual elements of each design artifact and requirement document to enable full traceability across the entire set of engineering artifacts. By using OSLC semantics to describe the information coming from the engineering tools, any design or requirement element can be linked to any other element whether or not it originated in the same application.
Configuration management enables SECollab users to retain multiple versions of their designs, reviews, and more generally of their projects.
