Brian Berenbach, Siemens Corporate Research
Tutorial number: 53
Requirements elicitation and management has become ever more important as products become more complex and time to market is shortened. Outsourcing has added a new dimension to requirements management, exacerbating problems associated with transitioning from analysis to design. This one day survey course will provide an introduction to requirements engineering from the perspective of project and product management: how it impacts project managers, quality assurance personnel, requirements analysts, developers and testers. Topics covered will include product line requirements, feature modeling, CMMI compliant requirements management and requirements analysis processes (both UML and text based). Business analysts who are interested in using UML for modeling will also find the course interesting. No formal knowledge of programming is required.
Beginner: No prior knowledge of requirements engineering processes or software development is required. Any business or software professional will be able to follow the material.
