Nelson Engineering uses a robust interdisciplinary approach to evaluate four requirements definition aspects: business, budget, technical, and schedule.
Business – the business case, contracts involved, stakeholder constraints, industry standards, policies, trends, and funding sources.
Budget – securing funds and cost phasing.
Technical – system requirements, concept selection, architecture selection, definition, integration, verification, and validation.
Schedule – implementation targets, resource availability, and performance.
A critical component of requirements management involves developing and maintaining project documentation from conception through activation and turnover. Nelson Engineering developed requirements describe the project scope, justification, estimated cost and schedule, and risk assessment scores. Requirements analysis and verification matrices ensure design traceability and enable transparent, non-confrontational requirements change management with the client.
