Aerospace Tech Week 2022: Jeff Price’s Presentation
Aerospace and defense is an industry where there is no space for mistakes or defects. Safety, quality, and reliability are the most essential elements here. Hence, Airborne systems must be made using the right tools keeping in mind the regulations and compliances that must be followed.
Aerospace requirements engineering is a process that helps identify and define the needs of a customer or stakeholder for a product or service. It also helps to establish what should be delivered, how it will be delivered, and who will be responsible for each step of the process. Requirements management is essential for aerospace projects, as it can help prevent problems and ensure that all stakeholders are on the same page. When it comes to requirements management for aerospace projects, there are various challenges a team faces.
The Aerospace Tech Week Americas, now in its fourth year, will take place every autumn/fall from 8-9th November 2022 in Atlanta, USA. The American Aerospace Tech Week will be an open opportunity for professionals from all over Europe, North, Central, and South America
The biennial events give a look at the most recent aviation technology breakthroughs (air-to-ground and nose-to-tail), IoT, big data, airline e-enablement, flight operation software, fuel efficiency, weather data, MRO software, digital transformation, AI, M2M, regulatory, policy, technical SES and next-generation challenges for avionics, plus the testing systems that are used in the design, construction, and maintenance of all commercial and military aircraft (both hardware and software).
As we all know, COVID-19 effect on the world is dramatic, and the IoT sector has not been immune. The economic repercussions are certainly the most apparent, but there are also changes in organizational behavior, employee availability and hiring, working configurations, social interactions, and corporate positioning that can’t be denied.
Henceforth, Jeff Price, Regional Sales Director at Visure Solutions, will be thoroughly talking about “How COVID-19 has changed the Requirements Engineering Process among embedded companies” in his presentation during the event.
COVID-19 affected people all over the world in ways we could not even imagine before. There will be references to a “before” and an “after” COVID-19 period, and certain paradigms shifted for the rest of our lives. It has had a huge impact on how people and businesses worked, and some companies found it hard to transition to a remote working or Work-From-Home-friendly environment. In some cases, it had to be done in less than a week.
At Visure Solutions, Inc., since we are well known for our expertise in Requirements Management and Traceability, we wanted to understand the impacts of COVID-19 were in the Requirements Engineering processes of industrial and avionics companies. According to several studies and feedback from our customers, the impact was quite mixed. For some companies, it had a huge impact. Typically, it was those companies that were not prepared at all to successfully brainstorm, elicit, manage and trace requirements, and avoid common pitfalls for teams accustomed to working in classic office environments but who now needed to work remotely.
On the other hand, COVID-19 had little impact on the Requirements Engineering process of other companies, such as those that had already put in place a structured process using techniques like asynchronous working, task management, and automation. Those companies who were successful quickly found ways to adapt their processes, some by learning from the experience of some other teams using collaboration and discussion techniques, role-based access, and information sharing to overcome these challenges.
This presentation will show several methods to Visure customers and other companies applied for minimizing the impact of COVID-19 on their Requirements Engineering process, and even to improve it during the lockdown periods.
