How Do Requirements Fit in a Model-Driven Environment?

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 11 May 2011 – To find out how requirements fit in a model-driven environment, sign up for this free webinar featuring software industry veteran Stephen Denman. “Are Models the New Requirements? The Role of Requirements in a Model-Based Engineering Design Process,” will be held on 18 May at 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT/17:00 GMT. Click here to register.

Engineering organizations today are looking to streamline and improve the process of communicating requirements between departments and with OEMs and suppliers. Models are quickly replacing requirements documentation to accomplish this. Using models as a communication vehicle can help speed development, reduce complexity, and reduce the risk of miscommunication and misunderstanding in the development process.

But it can be a challenge to condense thousands of requirements into a model. And since requirements can change throughout the lifecycle, it takes effort to manage changes to models, especially when the velocity of change is high.

As an industry and solutions marketing specialist with MKS Software, Denman is responsible for creating the go-to-market strategy and sales enablement materials for solutions built on MKS Integrity, a systems and software lifecycle management product for high-velocity engineering.

With more than 25 years of industry experience, Denman has a particular focus on embedded software development for aerospace and defense. During 13 years at Sandia National Laboratories, he was involved in nuclear weapons engineering and the development of CAD/CAM/CAE automation for weapon development and the production lifecycle. He later served as program manager for Sandia's FAA enterprise systems for aviation safety program.

At Rational Software and IBM, he spent seven years as a consultant and field engineer, delivering process and tools consulting around lifecycle disciplines including requirements, design, testing, and change and configuration management. He also spent six years running a consulting company, where he focused on large-scale deployment of systems and software lifecycle management processes and tools. Denman holds a BS and MS in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University.

The webinar will be moderated by Chris Ruoff, IEEE Computer Society senior manager for sales and channel development.
