Abstract

In a complex system, interdependencies in various requirements, if overlooked, may lead to unexpected malfunction and/or violation of system integrity. The systems engineering support tool under development supports systems engineers in organizations responsible for the design, realization, and support of complex technologically intensive systems that experience difficulty in managing the interdependencies in systems requirements. This tool is to address the needs of systems engineers as they work with a range of stakeholders, each with their specific terminology, technical issues, and decision responsibilities. The physical and operational requirements are developed using a spiral model of successive evolutionary steps in system realization.
