Free ticketed event
Requirements play a critical role in engineering design projects and much time is spent eliciting and documenting them. However, much use of requirements is observed while evaluating concepts, especially by novice designers. Thus, it becomes necessary to enhance the use of requirements and incorporate requirements throughout the design process. Thus, this workshop begins to incorporate requirements by using them as a tool for monitoring project health. The workshop is mainly intended for new and experienced capstone instructors, instructors involved in teaching design-related classes, and capstone students. Through this workshop, the participants will:
1) Learn the concept of requirements completeness based on a case study.
2) Learn the concept of requirements specificity based on a case study.
3) Learn the concept of requirement tracing, tracking the functional and non-functional requirement from start to conclusion of the project.
4) Participate in hands-on activities to apply these concepts.
At the end of the workshop, the attendees will:
• Be able to measure "completeness" and "specificity" of requirements.
• Be able to use concepts of "completeness" and "specificity" of requirements for monitoring project health.
