We help organisations overcome challenges by enabling teams capture and manage system requirements effectively.
Our consultancy and support services focus on the role that systems engineering plays within an organisation and how this can be developed and improved to achieve wider commercial objectives. Central to our services is our team of specialists. We have some of the UK’s most recognised technical specialists who offer years of industry experience and unrivalled knowledge of systems engineering processes and tools.
We deliver our services by embedding ourselves within development teams or an off-site call out basis.

The complexity of implementing systems engineering in an organisation should not be underestimated. It requires the introduction of new working practices, new processes, new tools - and underpinning all of this - cultural change. While the technical aspects do take time, it is
the winning over of people’s hearts and minds that requires leadership, persistence, training and coaching over a considerable period.
Our systems engineers have considerable experience of guiding organisations through the process of introducing systems engineering. The typical starting point for most organisations is to address the requirements management parts of their engineering processes. Requirements management is widely regarded as the aspect of systems engineering that underpins most of the other processes; a properly organised approach to requirements management provides the structures around which the systems engineering process can operate.
Broadly speaking, an organisation is making the following cultural change:
Typically, the requirements management approach is implemented in seven stages:

Effective requirements capture and management is the cornerstone of any systems engineering project. With so much to manage from standards conformance to test cases, it’s easy to see why many systems engineering professionals have difficulty establishing clear
and accurate protocols at the early stages of the systems development life cycle.
Moreover, in times of austerity, more and more companies are looking to use sound requirements management practices to address inefficiencies.
Our team includes some of the leading specialists in requirements management who can also provide expert advice and consultancy on how best to transform processes. We also offer a service whereby we can work alongside your development teams to capture and manage requirements for you.
