Workshop: What is ‘asked for’ and what is ‘needed’ are not the same. What is your choice?
Ger Schoeber (Grouplead systems engineering Lightyear)
10:30 - 12:00 hours
This workshop will be delivered in Dutch. If there's someone present who doesn't speak Dutch, the presenters will switch to English.
Have you ever received requirements that do not reflect the actual customer needs?
It should be fast, easy to use, high throughput, a brilliant list of features, and many more. And after extensive phases of years of designing, engineering, integrating, verifying, validating, etc, it turns out that it might be hard to manufacture, hard to service, or it lacks scalability.
How to prevent this?
If you recognise this and are interested in learning and experiencing a very practical tool/method to deal with this, then I’d would like to welcome you in this workshop!
