System Verification, Validation and Qualification.

System Definition.
Depending on the customer requirements the system definition is performed in various levels of detail and formality.
  • User Requirement Analysis
    Translate the user requirements into a set of quantifiable functional requirements that can be translated into design requirements.

  • Functional Analysis
    Defining the system in ever increasing levels of detail in terms of performance, sequences, hardware etc. The output defines the system in terms of operational use, interfaces, software, support etc.

  • Requirements Allocation
    Decomposing the system requirements until a level is reached where a specific hardware item or software routine can fulfill the functional and performance requirements.

  • Trade Studies
    Exploring different solutions to best satisfy the system requirements in terms of performance, cost, schedule, reliability etc.

  • System Synthesis
    Transforming system requirements into physical reality through interface control documents, computer simulation, system block diagrams, schematic diagrams etc.
