Comprehensive ways to improve confidence per dollar in Requirements proofs.

ATI's Modern Requirements Verification Course

Share |


    Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

      This 2-day comprehensive course is designed for Verification Engineers, Test Engineers, Performance Analyst, Inspectors, Systems Engineers, Project Management, and Technical Managers. They will enhance their understanding of Requirements Verification and its overlap and synergy with Software Independent Verification & Validation, Models & Simulation Verification, Validation & Accreditation, Systems Engineers, and Project Management. The class will include lecture/discussion with real life DoD Space, Aviation, Communication, Signal Processing and Radar examples and have students apply these skills to Verification of Requirements.



      Mr. William "Bill" Fournier (CSEP) is a Chief Acquisition Systems Engineer with 35 years experience as a SETA Government Systems Engineer, and Professor of Engineering Management. He taught and built curriculum on DoD Systems Engineering and Program Management full time for over ten years at DSMC/DAU. Mr. Fournier has taught Systems Engineering at least part time for more than the last 18 years for organizations including SAIC, Honourcode, INCOSE, and ATI. Bill is a major contributor to Systems Engineering courses at DAU/DSMC, SAIC internal Systems Engineering courses (SE foundation course and SE for non SEs). SAIC Systems Engineering process, and INCOSE publications and symposium article reviews.

      Mr. Fournier is a SME and built and taught SE foundations, SE for non SE, ORSA for non ORSA, Configuration Management, Technical Reviews, INCOSE SE DoD Acquisition Extension exam preparation, and Requirements Verification courses. Bill is the lead instructor for Honoucode Systems Engineering Exam preparation course and has taught and help update NASA SE planning course. He has been working numerous DOD and IC weapon and IT systems. Bill has been an invited speaker for five different INCOSE chapters multiple times.

      Mr Fournier education includes the following: Five Doctoral-level courses at GWU & GMU a, MBA, Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville a , BS IE/OR with Honors, University of Massachusetts, at Amherst, Program Management Course, 20 weeks, DoD DSMC, and Product / Production Engineering course, 1 year, AMC.

    What you will learn:

    • How to target verification efforts for a specific system?
    • How do you plan a lead-time for verification?
    • How to optimize tradeoff of Verification methods.
    • What should be included in each level of Verification planning
    • How to decide the best process for Verification.
    • How to optimize the interface to Verification events.
    • How to balance the Verification closure process for rigor, risk, and completeness.

    From this course you will obtain the knowledge and ability to perform requirements verification and take advantage of the related areas to maximize confidence per dollar.

    Course Outline:

    1. Overview. This module includes a pre-assessment, and definitions of Verification terms such as, significance, processes, tools, approaches, tailoring, traces, rollups, and Requirements influence. Also the module includes references, lessons learned on overall Verification. It concludes with an exploration of the relationships of Requirements Verification to SW IV&V, M&S VV&A, Systems Engineering, and Project Management.
    2. Requirements Verification Methods. This module answers the question of why we use Verification Methods. It explores the tradeoff between Test, Analysis, Demonstration, and Inspection. The module also covers certification, lessons learned. It concludes with a practical exercise/case study on Verification methods selection.
    3. Requirements Verification Planning. This module discusses topics of the three levels, Verification Cross Reference Matrix / Requirements, Traceability Verification Matrix, and Verification Event Matrix. Also it includes detail planning, Configuration Management, Regression, Assessment, and lessons learned. The module contains a practical exercise on Verification planning.
    4. Requirements Verification Processes. This module includes process selection tradeoff factors. It covers Verification Logic Networks, Verification Summary Sheets, Test Information sheets, Verification Objectives, Certification Objectives, and other Verification processes. The practical exercise applies Verification process selection factors.
    5. Verification Events. This module includes event Types, risk, observer, data capture, and event planning. The practical exercise applies event-planning approaches to improve confidence per dollar.
    6. Verification Closure. This module includes selection of Processes, and use of forms, and data. The practical exercise applies verification closure lessons learned. The module concludes with a course post- Assessment
