Are additional principles and requirements necessary for your organizations applications?

  2. When you look for new applications to meet your business needs _ requirements are defined, software is evaluated, software selected, software configuration begins. But what about the data, how is this managed?

  3. How does the architect get to know from within the Designer tool that he/she needs to start the design process, once the requirements are approved and assigned a Release in the Requirements tool?

  4. Critical Vendors _ How many servers do you have in use with installations of products from vendors with complex licensing requirements, and from those who conduct stringent compliance audits?

  5. In addition to national laws and regulations, such as environmental statutes, are there local laws or regulations that will affect projects and the functional requirements to implement them?

  6. Is the software and application development process based on an industry best practice and is information security included throughout the software development life cycle (SDLC) process?

  7. What are the inputs that support and enhance the design and development of RCM processes, the requirements analysis and the specification of RCM software in cloud computing environments?

  8. Has each task involved in the proposed rotation been reviewed with the Physical Job Analysis checklist to determine precise requirements and has a Job Rotation Worksheet been generated?

  9. What are your policies and procedures for maintaining development documents, including requirements, design and architecture documents, source code, binaries, and user documentation?

  10. Once functional safety requirements involve devices that are outside of the vehicle (other constituent systems of the SoS), how to ensure that these requirements will be guaranteed?

Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Requirements Management investments work better.

This Requirements Management All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
