Energy Transformation – The Application of a Requirements Management Approach – ep. 2

By Blake Snodgrass

Follow us on:

In large projects, the number of individual requirements/specifications can be overwhelming when considered side-by-side with the design. It can easily lead to the design team accidentally skipping some of them as they already deal with large amounts of data. You can solve this challenge by integrating those requirements into the design tools to ensure that the product taking up your resources comes out as required.

In this second of four episodes, we again welcome John Nixon of Siemens Digital Industries Software and John Lusty, the Industry Lead for Energy & Utilities Industry Marketing at Siemens Digital Industries Software. They’ll share how a requirements management approach applies to large projects within the energy industry.

In this episode, you’ll learn about the challenge of significant amounts of complex data. You’ll also understand why it is essential to adopt a requirements management approach while working on large projects with many requirements. Lastly, you’ll hear about the benefits of integrating the requirements with the design tools.
