A time-saving guide for system engineers and requirements analysts.
We distilled the insights from our research into this one guide + checklist that we hope will help accelerate the requirements engineering phase of your medical device projects.
Requirements authoring is a tedious process. An inevitable effect of complex and tedious work is the possibility of introducing errors along the way. This is where the requirements review process comes in.
This guide describes ten requirements engineering (RE) best practices aerospace organizations can apply to help assure their avionic software complies with DO-178C. The accompanying checklist is meant to help those organizations embed these best practices, both within their RE process and in the minds of their engineers.
Requirement elicitation is more than simply asking “what are the most important features in product X?”. Stakeholders frequently have ideas, wants or needs floating in the back of their minds, but these may not be clear, even to themselves. So, it’s the job of requirements elicitor to draw these out of the stakeholders and help them articulate their vision, as well as their understanding of the end product.
It’s important to learn from our mistakes, but even more valuable to learn from the mistakes of others. In many cases, best practices develop from what industries or organizations learn from these mistakes. Without effective knowledge transfer, you risk the loss of important organizational knowledge and the associated competitive advantage.
The status quo of requirements specification in non-dedicated authoring tools is no longer an option due to increased complexity/cost of post-silicon validation, increasingly stringent standards compliance, and specification quality issues due to reuse and best practice negligence. Fortunately, there are now requirements authoring tools that solve all of these issues…
