Introduces delegates to the basic concepts of using RPE with DOORS as the source material and builds skills in creating RPE templates. Some of the more advanced configuration and additional RPE features will also be discussed.

Day two - classroom or workshop based, discussion of topics arising from Day one and covers issues and problems experienced with the implementation of RPE within the project environment. Delegates are encouraged to bring along their own examples of project documentation.
