Abstract:   A requirement is a condition or capability that must be met by a system, or system component, to satisfy a contract, standard, specification, or other formally imposed document.  Because a requirement is contractually binding, it is critical that the requirement be unambiguous, understandable, achievable, verifiable, and correctly written.  This seminar will provide a basic understanding of: the grammatical rules of writing a requirement, the characteristics of a “good” requirement, requirement categories, types of technical requirements, requirement verification methods, and personal lessons learned.  The seminar will also identify sources of desk top reference material for the design engineer.

Dan Walker earned his BS degree in Electrical Engineering from the California State University, Long Beach; his MS degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles; and his MS degree in Aerospace Engineering Sciences from the University of Colorado, Boulder.  He is currently retired after working for 32.5 years for six aerospace corporations: Sperry Flight Systems, Hughes Aircraft Company, E-Systems, Ball Aerospace and Technologies, Boeing Satellite Systems, and The Aerospace Corporation.  Dan spent the majority of his career developing instruments for satellite environmental remote sensing.
