Requirements Analysis and Systems Engineering

Although this happens informally in smaller, less complex projects, for larger or safety critical equipment, detailed analysis of the system requirements in the planning stages of the program is warranted and provides significant benefit to the project by reducing development time, cost, and agency approval risk. When warranted, a detailed analysis of the system, user and business requirements is performed and formally captured to be used as inputs into the product design and verification phases of the project.

Issues such as product performance, reliability, safety considerations, development and manufacturing logistics, coordination of different teams, interoperability with other parts of the system are all considered to ensure that all aspects of the project or system are considered, and integrated into a whole.
