The May 2016 INCOSE Colorado Front Chapter (CFR) meeting will be held on Thursday May 26, 2016, at 6:30 PM at the Terumo BCT Facility in Lakewood, CO. This is a rescheduled event that was canceled in March due to weather. Light refreshments will be provided. RSVP to Lonnie VanZandt ([email protected]).


Kristina Fuerst and Casey Medina will present a discussion based on two papers published at IS2015. The papers cover requirements development and the "V" model in the context of medical devices. The processes and procedures described are applicable across industries and describe a structured, requirements engineering process for individuals, corporate cultures, and industries that are not familiar with requirements engineering best practices. These processes were implemented by the authors in the product development process of a medical device manufacturer and are presented as an example of the implementation of the requirements engineering process using a sample project.
