A Model-Based Approach to Requirements Analysis for Complex Products in Engineering Design

Research output: ThesisDissertationCollection of Articles

Abstract

The requirements analysis process has been identified as a core design activity for a successful product development. However, the process continues to pose significant challenges. It is challenging for many companies, because requirements are typically managed either manually using documents, or in special-purpose systems that are disconnected from the rest of the product design data. There is the lack of a collaborative attribute and the requirements analysis process is not defined with the precision and uniformity with computer-based tools as in, for instance, software engineering. Engineering design projects has become multifaceted and product complexity has increased and this demand more rigorous and formalized design practices. Modeling as well as simulation is indispensable when designing complex products.
