Requirements are one of the most critical aspects of modern systems development and also one of the least understood. This tutorial will present a comprehensive overview of industry best practices for requirements development, covering elicitation, analysis, validation, specification, allocation, and verification. An introduction to model-based techniques for developing requirements will also be provided. Attendees will leave with a thorough understanding of techniques and tools for handling common requirements challenges.

Please Note

A paper test for INCOSE Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) and Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) will be offered after the tutorial at 2pm. Contact us if you would like to participate in the test.
