Software Development Management Tool?
I am researching tools that could help my development team be more productive. Right now we push a lot of paper around. We are looking for a tool that comes as close to simulating our process: a document covering a project module and a list needed changes and enhancements, a document covering each list item from the first document and a test sheet for the list items. (I hope this conveys my thinking).
I don't mean to rain on your process, but why documents? These are software developers. A bug tracking system is what you sound like you should be after.

Can you more clearly define what "affordable" means? How much are you looking to spend?
Hmmm...I guess the only way to get developers to work on somethning is to call it a bug.."programming is debugging a blank page/empty file" and all that. What if there were requirements, tasks, issues(bugs), all linked to a release and each other with attachments as needed. All issues and tasks would roll up to requirements and then to releases.

Try installing a wiki, such as TWiki (http://www.twiki.org).
Try a company called Telelogic. They started in systems engineering - defining requirementes...linking requirements to configuration and version managment and then tools for code generation and generation of test scripts.
Thanks for the Telelogic tip. That may be what I was looking for.
Try iNotion from I-Logix ( www.ilogix.com ) . I am not sure what your needs are but since yu are not looking for bug tracking only, but also for documents management (and couplin documents with bugs ?) and maybe project lifecycle mngmnt, this may be the right solution for you.
