Abstract: Systems Engineering processes are more than a set of instructions on how to practice our craft, they are enablers to ensure the overall effort of developing systems leads to positive outcomes. This presentation will provide methods to ensure the system design solutions are enabled by the requirements development process. Highlights from the INCOSE Needs and Requirements Manual (NRM) are provided, with examples, showing how the new Requirement Working Group products can be used to help with the design process, and lead to a system development effort that satisfies stakeholder expectations.
This presentation summarizes activities of the Requirements Working Group, accomplishments, 2022 plans and opportunities for involvement.
