Joint the next Requirements Working Group Meeting!
December Exchange Cafe
Date and Time: pending
Presenter: Lou Wheatcraft, RWG Co-Chair
Title: Poorly Formed Requirements Assessment - Using the characteristics and rules defined in the INCOSE Guide to Writing Requirements (GtWR) to define well-formed design input requirements (Continued)
Abstract: This is the first of three presentations where the rules contained in the GtWR are applied to a set of poorly formed requirements, assessing the defects (violations of the rules), and providing an improved version
of each requirement that is well-formed per the rules in the GtWR. The set of system level design input requirements being defined is for a Lid Installation Robot (LIR) whose function (intended use) is to install lids on jars. Given the
number and types of requirements included in the overall set of LIR requirements, follow-on presentations will pick up where this session ends, continuing with the set of requirements. Each session will address different types of requirements
that should be included in a complete set of design input requirements.
While presentations have been made concerning an overview of the GtWR and a more in-depth presentation on the rules for writing well-formed need and requirement statements, there is a demand for live, interactive series of presentations, where the rules
are applied to requirements for an actual case study and attendees have the opportunity to be actively involved. Learning is enhanced when theory is applied to an actual real-world system to be developed. The intent is for this to be an interactive activity where attendees are first asked to identify defects, discuss the presenter’s identified defects, and then discuss the presenter’s improved version of the defective requirements.
This will be a great learning experience for attendees – the devil is in the details and until you can apply the rules to a real case study it will be difficult to be proficient in defining well-formed requirements. To get the most from this series of presentations, while not mandatory, attendees are encouraged to first view the generic presentation on the rules defined in the GtWR.
