Systems Engineering

Is the art and science of developing an operable system capable of meeting requirements within often opposed constraints. Systems engineering is a holistic, integrative discipline, wherein the contributions of structural engineers, electrical engineers, mechanism designers, power engineers, human factors engineers, and many more disciplines are evaluated and balanced, one against another, to produce a coherent whole that is not dominated by the perspective of a single discipline.

Requirements Engineering workshops or presentations customized to your organization can also be organized upon request. Please contact us.

It’s no secret that poorly understood user requirements and uncontrolled scope lead to many project failures. Many organizations are improving the methods they use to gather, analyze, document, and manage their requirements. Project teams traditionally document their requirements in a structured requirements specification written in natural language. However, document-based specs have some limitations:

  •     It’s difficult to keep current
  •     It’s hard to communicate changes to the affected team members
  •     It’s difficult to store supplementary information about each requirement
  •     It’s hard to define links between functional requirements and corresponding use cases, designs, code, tests, and project tasks.

A commercial requirements management tool that stores requirements and related information in a multi-user database provides a more robust solution. These tools provide functions to manipulate and view the database contents, import and export requirements, define links between requirements, and connect requirements to other software development tools.

DOORS is a sophisticated product that can manage requirements on large products. But a tool won’t help you gather the right requirements for your project, and they don’t replace a defined process for managing your project’s requirements. A tool is not a process in itself, but it supports and enables an established process.
