Format: This live presentation will also be webcast! Please check back closer to the presentation date for the Zoom link.
IF you were asked to develop your system’s requirements model or architecture model, you’d probably have a fair idea how to start and what those models would look like. What about your system’s verification model? The right side of the lifecycle V-model tends to get short shrift when it comes to developing models more descriptive than meer traceability matrices. Charley Patton, CSEP, will discuss the concept and present examples of a Requirements Verification Architecture Model (RVAM) as practiced on his current program with Northrop Grumman. A complete RVAM brings together requirements, architecture entities, and verification cases in a suite of diagrams that provide an important development team coordination tool.
Presenter: Mr. Charley Patton, Northrop-Grumman Corporation (NGC)
Charley Patton, CSEP, is a systems engineering lead for Northrop Grumman, which he joined in 2004. He has a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Colorado, Boulder, an M.S. in Business Management from SDSU, and several certificates, including a Systems Engineering certificate from UCSD and a Model-Based Systems Engineering certificate from Caltech. Mr. Patton transitioned from software engineering to systems engineering the old-fashioned way – his boss directed him to derive the system requirements because he was the most experienced member of the project team. From this first excursion into systems engineering, he learned increasingly disciplined methods for determining and documenting requirements and architectures; planned and executed system test and deployment activities; eventually joined the ranks of functional management leading a group of mostly software, integration, and test engineers; and even managed a hardware development team for a year. Today he splits his time performing systems engineering lead functions, responding to proposals, executing technical systems engineering tasks, and trying to get his dachshund to understand the value of properly documented ConOps.
