INCOSE-LA Chapter Speaker Meeting: Help! My requirements are a Hot Mess! New INCOSE Guides Can Help

Register here! (Remote participation available. Contact info at this link)

Topic: Help! My requirements are a Hot Mess! New INCOSE Guides Can Help

Abstract: Can your requirements situation be described as a “Hot Mess at Best”?

Have you ever wondered if there had to be an easier way to develop, manage, and verify requirements for your technical project?

Do you have a well-functioning team, but the potential for more efficiency at reduced cost is there – even if everyone simply used all the systems engineering terms the same way?

Several new guides from INCOSE will help solve these problems – and help your team become more efficient.  Guides are designed to define a comprehensive vocabulary, lay out a step-by-step process, and present examples and implementation guides for the entire requirements, validation, and verification  lifecycle.

Raymond will introduce the Needs and Requirements Lifecycle Manual, and the two practitioner-level guides to support it:  the Guide to Needs and Requirements and the Guide to Verification and Validation.  All 3 documents, along with a revision to the established Guide to Writing Requirements, are scheduled for release at the INCOSE International Workshop in January 2022. 

Speaker: Raymond Wolfgang brings his unique requirements and V&V expertise to a host of national systems in his role as a Systems and Qualification Engineer at Sandia National Laboratories. He has worked with customers to identify needs for an operational software key management system, deployed several process improvement initiatives in requirements management, and currently leads an effort to complete a large program’s use case portfolio.

Before Sandia, while working for the US Navy, Raymond managed the installation process for a critical ship-board technology refresh. His current push is to use MBSE to save projects time and money, increase quality, and reduce risk through more efficient and thorough requirements analysis. His INCOSE papers are available upon request, as are several open reports from his employer. A graduate of both Purdue and Penn State Universities in the United States, he is originally from Philadelphia, PA. 

When: August July 10, 2021 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM PST

Cost: Free
