Requirements Engineering Management Training, A Hands-on Requirements Clinic and Workshop

Requirements Engineering Management Training

Requirements Engineering Management Training

A requirement is a capability to which a project outcome (product or service) should conform.

Requirements management is the process of documenting, analyzing, tracing, prioritizing and agreeing on requirements and then controlling change and communicating to relevant stakeholders.

This is a continuous process throughout a project.

The purpose of requirements management is to ensure that an organization documents, verifies, and meets the needs and expectations of its customers and internal or external stakeholders.

Requirements management normally begins with the analysis and elicitation of the objectives and constraints of the organization, then proceeds to include supporting planning for requirements, integrating requirements and the organization for working with them (attributes for requirements), as well as relationships with other information delivering against requirements, and changes for these.

Another important aspect of requirements management involves communication between the project team members and stakeholders, and adjustment to requirements changes throughout the course of the project.

To prevent one class of requirements from overriding another, constant communication among members of the development team is critical.

Additionally, traceability is a key factor. Traceability is used in managing requirements to report back fulfillment of company and stakeholder interests in terms of compliance, completeness, coverage and consistency.

Traceabilities also support change management as part of requirements management in understanding the impacts of changes through requirements or other related elements and facilitating introducing these changes.

Requirements Engineering Management Course Specifics

Requirements Engineering Management Training teaches participants recommended best practices on how to work with processes and techniques to collect, write, validate, organize, manage and maintain complex systems and System of Systems (SoS) requirements.

Requirements Engineering Management Training brings together the best ideas, insights and best practices from several approaches. All the students work with real case studies from relevant industries.

Requirements Engineering Management Training presents guidelines and a set of recommended best practices on how to analyze, collect, write, validate, verify and organize requirements. During the hands-on workshop, we show you the best ideas from several approaches, organize them into a coherent whole, and describe and illustrate them with real life examples that make their benefits clear.

Tonex can also tailor this course to better fit your organization’s needs.
