Engineering Requirements Manager
Summary of Role
Reporting to the Systems Design Authority, you will be required to execute and advise the engineering community on the Requirements Management (RM) Policy.
The Requirements Management Specialist provides assistance to Engineering on complex technical data in support of new and existing programmes. Maintaining an accurate history of the evolution of the system requirement set; ensuring all supporting information is linked and readily accessible. You will review documents to verify completeness and accuracy of data, resolving discrepancies with originators while aligning with customer and company policies and procedures.
Work with the Lead Systems Engineer to select an appropriate lifecycle to produce a Requirement Management Plan and associated data model.
Responsible for setup and administration of the DOORS database against the Requirement Management Plan, for e.g. define attributes and DOORS schema.
Liaise closely with the Configuration and Data Management (CMDM) Team to ensure the requirements baseline is kept under Configuration Change Control as required by the programme.
Assess the change impact to requirements and highlight risks to the programme.
Define the process to trace verification requirements back to system requirements and vice versa, in-line with the integration and verification plan for a complex system to prepare evidence for Customer acceptance and Certification.
Specify bespoke views and reports as required by Engineering and Programme Management e.g. Key Performance Indicators, Metrics.
Participate in process improvement activities and communicate Requirement Management policies and procedures to all project stakeholders.
Ensure that the requirements of all lifecycle stages are addressed at the correct point in the System design and consideration should be given to the design attributes such as manufacturability, testability, reliability, maintainability, safety, security, flexibility, interoperability, capability growth, disposal ,cost, natural variations etc.
Decompose higher-level functions to lower-levels and trace the allocation of requirements to those functions, and understand the need for functional models.
Ensure the overall coherence and cohesion of the “evolving” design of a system is maintained, in a verifiable manner, throughout the lifecycle, whilst complying with the Certification requirements.
Experience in delivering System Engineering activities on complex military or equivalent systems.
Understand what a system is, its context within its environment, its boundaries and interfaces across the System lifecycle.
Understand the principles of architectural design and its role within the System lifecycle.
Recognise the scope and limitations of models and simulations, including definition, implementation and analysis to show how a particular object or phenomenon will behave.
Analytical thinking: To become familiar with domains that may be unknown, you must have the ability to understand and analyse complicated problems and relationships.
Bachelor’s Degree in an Engineering or Science based subject.
Certified to INCOSE or IREB professional standards.
Familiar with working in an Integrated Product Team (IPT) participating in essential acquisition and development activities in a cross-functional team.
Familiar with the UK MoD Knowledge in Defence (KiD) Requirements and Acquisition Framework.
Experience with Certification & Airworthiness standards.
Skilled in creating bespoke views and reports using DXL scripts.
