Reaching clarity in definition before the system is physically realized can often be a challenge. As a concept moves farther away from the abstract, source requirements can come from unexpected places and can even reside in the minds of several different individuals who might not even realize they are legitimate stakeholders. The system definition process should work closely with stakeholders to map use-cases, capture the right system requirements, and achieve design consensus. The identification process should consider product impacts on Production, Deployment, Operations, and Support, and should be compliant with applicable laws, industry standards, and business constraints. Realtime helps our customers navigate those challenges with experienced designers who know how to avoid pitfalls.
“Designing with the end in mind” starts with synthesizing an architectural solution in terms of the requirements that are robust and verifiable. The resulting design should be the basis for verifying the realized system and for devising an assembly and verification strategy. Realtime engineers’ architecture design process identifies and explores those implementation strategies at a level of detail that match the system’s technical and commercial requirements, risks, and budget.
