This presentation presents the business case for the introduction of effective requirements management to support major projects and complex system developments. There is strong evidence to support the case that reducing requirement errors and omission may be the single most effective action that project managers and developers of complex systems can take to improve project outcomes and assist in the ultimate goal of delivering quality systems, on-time and within budget. This session highlights some of the empirical evidence and demonstrates that an investment in more effect requirements management, particularly at the outset and throughout the project lifecycle will produce substantial and quantifiable rewards.

Paul Hewitt’s Bio

“Senior manager with an established background in systems engineering and requirements management, initially developing air traffic control and police command and control communications systems. Then took up the post of engineering manager at Siemens Plessey Systems (now Selex Communications) working on a number of complex military communications command and control projects, leading project teams, studies and managing bids for multi-million pound government contracts. This led to a move into the software tools sector providing systems engineering consulting support and training for complex through life systems engineering tools supporting many major projects in aerospace, defence, railway infrastructure, telecoms and medical devices. For the last 15-years I have had senior management roles within Telelogic, IBM, Serena Software and now Visure Solutions promoting a portfolio of software tools supporting application lifecycle management covering business processes for requirements management, configuration management, through to the release of software applications into the IT production environment.”
