Reducing the Cost of Requirements Engineering

Thursday, 26th November 2020 | 21:00 – 22:00 CET

Requirements Engineering

Requirements Engineering (RE) is central to the successful development of complex systems. Therefore, it has high visibility and management support. This is good because they advocate for RE activities…and bad, as simple metrics can be misleading. It can result in the creation of additional requirements becoming an objective when the goal should be to reduce the total number of requirements and associated costs.

Through a case study from a recent industry project, we will present a guideline for measuring the cost of RE, provide practical solutions for reducing the number and associated costs of requirements.

We will also address the human factors that play a role in RE and re-introduce successful technical solutions that have been replaced by mainstream methodologies in RE.

In this presentation, we will discuss:


The REAL costs associated with Requirements

The importance of people and management issues in Requirements


The value of reusing Requirements across domains

The promise of semantic MBSE for automated Requirements generation

Who Should Attend?

Marco Di Maio


Marco is professor of Systems Engineering at Ingolstadt University. Before that, he was the managing director of Projectglobe Ltd.; a boutique consultancy firm specialising in MBSE and IM to support complex and complicated innovation-driven engineering projects. Major customers are the fusion research community and 3D laser welding and robotics.
Marco holds a PhD in Nuclear Engineering and a Masters in Operational Research. In his role as research fellow at Europe’s largest fusion laboratory, JET near Oxford, he designed new complex diagnostics, one of which earned him a worldwide patent. He then worked for the automotive industry managing innovative product development projects for the emerging markets of Eastern Europe and Russia before co-founding Projectglobe with the purpose to devise novel methodologies, frameworks and tools that combine MBSE with IM to enable effective innovation and product development.

Together with ThyssenKrupp Marine Services, Projectglobe have devised Model-Driven Engineering, a semantic MBSE methodology with a strong data-driven philosophy. All engineering items are objects in a semantic reference model from which the individual artefacts are generated automatically in the correct format for SE teams and domain experts alike. MDE is an active system, supporting the whole product life cycle. In a recent collaboration with RWTH Aachen MDE was extended to include their “Experimentable” Digital Twins providing a closed-loop development framework and platform.
