Virtualisation and Simulation
Deployment of digital and virtual versions of products is becoming more and more common in development. Simulations and virtual and digital twins are becoming increasingly significant development stages. They support validation, verification during the development process; a vehicle for communication with stakeholders and other systems; and act as mock-ups or prototypes for eliciting requirements.
Models and Modelling
Requirements do not necessarily have to be captured in text. Getting away from mainly document-driven development and accepting models as a part of requirements specification in various areas of development: in which areas have you been successful in this? What were the obstacles that you had to overcome? What new type of cooperation between development disciplines is necessary in order to implement model-based systems engineering?
The Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0 and Blockchain are buzzwords that are increasingly used in the workplace. What influence are these digital transformation issues having on development and production? What techniques do you use for dealing with requirements in this respect? What are the new aspects that need to be considered in organisation and interaction with people?
Innovation and elicitation of requirements are closely linked. How does your company deal with innovation? How is innovation encouraged within teams, in order to react to ever shorter development cycles? How do you integrate trial-and-error? What encourages a constructive way of dealing with mistakes? What role do parallel development, the development of alternatives and selection play in your organisation? How do you combine innovation and dealing with requirements?
Variant Management and Product Life Cycle
In complex products artefacts in mechanics, mechatronics, electronics and software must interact well. They are suitably linked through requirements engineering. RE links product strategy and advance development, project initialization, development and construction, commissioning and production, maintenance and operations; as well as associated project, configuration, version, variant and change management. RE is therefore a significant component for product life cycle management. We are looking for presentations that examine RE in the areas of PDM, PLM and ALM.
New Work and Organisation in Development
Value-based leadership, New Work, Management 3.0, Beyond Budgeting: innovative management approaches are changing the world of knowledge workers. What is required of our leaders to manage this transition? What support do requirements engineers, business analysts and product owners need from management and the organisation, in order to still be successful in a complex world? How does the manager need to change so that agile development is possible in the organisation? How does the manager's daily work change? What happens to the manager?
People and Technology
People are normally only considered explicitly through their "role" in development. Customers and stakeholders are also people. How can people with their special qualities be explicitly taken into account? What techniques in Design Thinking, UX etc. have you used successfully?
Autonomous and automatic sub-systems are playing an ever bigger role, both in our products and in our development and production areas. What prerequisites are necessary to be able to deploy autonomous systems effectively? Which automatic processes do you use to support development and production in your organisation? Which RE and RM tasks can be automated?
Advancing new ideas together with enthusiasm and curiosity.
An interest in developing new products or approaches arouses enthusiasm and passion.
People with a burning passion for designing new things, and meeting the challenges associated with new and further developments, do so in teams.
Creating trust through commitment, focus, courage, openness and respect.
Successful teams for innovative products and approaches need an environment of trust. This is established through a commitment to working together towards an agreed common goal in a focussed, consistent and persistent manner. It also requires having the courage to go in new directions, talking openly about any awkward issues and showing respect for the experience and views of all those involved.
Based on agile values, principles and practices, and a value-oriented approach to requirements, we work together with our customers to enhance the development of their innovative and complex systems.
HOOD has been helping large organisations to improve the way they deal with requirements for over 25 years.
Rather than sticking dogmatically to set approaches or preaching about process models, we agree development practices with our clients pragmatically according to the company's particular situation and market, and avoid unnecessary expenditure.
A change of approach is not normally a technical issue. We get those people affected by the change onboard by designing the change process with them together.
Our core competencies are in agile transition and requirements engineering, including its various interfaces with systems and software engineering. For this we are able to draw on many years' experience in agile coaching, and sound expertise in requirements management.
