The RWG won two awards during the IW2023: Product of the Year (for the Needs and Requirements Manual and associated Guides), and Outreach. Thank you INCOSE!
We are grateful for those that participated in our RWG pre-IW virtual sessions earlier this week, the guest speakers were excellent and they brought some great content to our members. If you would like to see any of this event, please see the recordings at our YouTube channel, and the slides are at the new RWG iNet site for IW2023 (replaces the old Connect site). A big Thank You to the presenters, we appreciate your involvement and content!
The RWG meetings at IW2023 were held Sunday and Monday, 1 pm – 5:30 pm, at the Pier 4 conference room, and on Zoom. The topic was"2023 updates to the Guide to Writing Requirements".
RWG co-chair Lou Wheatcraft went over the concepts from the Needs and Requirements Manual and the current Guide to Writing Requirements. The rules and characteristics of well formed needs and requirements were discussed with the meeting attendees, prompting active discussion and questions which helped the WG as input into the next version of the Guide. The TPP for the GtWR has been submitted, the inputs will be applied, and a full review of the content is planned in order for the revision to be released by IS2023.
Additionally, several topics for monthly presentations have been provided, allowing us to set up our working group meeting plans for 2023, starting in late February.
