Case Study on Requirements Management in Multidisciplinary Product Development
This paper reports about a case study on documentation and communication workflows that support requirements management in a company that is a global supplier for automotive and industrial engineering projects. The scientific motivation behind this case study was to explore how individual project managers cope with the generation of a validated set of requirements. Second, the case study was focussed on processes and tools that support a flexible documentation and communication of requirements. Requirements in this context were defined as qualitative and quantitative parameters (VDI 2221) that refer to the expected characteristics and properties of the products (Weber 2013).
