How can quality system breakdown structures be produced?


Quality system breakdown structures are created by quality design. Quality design occurs as a result of:

  • having a good definition and understanding of the problem
  • applying deep knowledge of relevant technologies
  • applying a degree of creativity commensurate with the novelty, complexity and importance of the problem/solution, to conceive how the technology knowledge can be best applied to create a quality solution
  • using a “divide and conquer” strategy to balance risk due to complexity against definite engineering overhead, trading system breakdown structure depth against system breakdown structure bredth, to achieve an optimum
  • employing sound design principles without qualification,  and sound design processes selectively, commensurate with the novelty, complexity and importance of the problem/solution.

How to achieve the above fills books, including some not yet written!

Requirements Analysis & Specification Writing
Las Vegas, NV

13 - 17 November, 2017

Requirements Analysis and Specification Writing are sciences practiced by many, mastered by surprisingly few. And yet, the payoff from achieving excellence in these areas is large. The two aspects, Requirements Analysis and Specification Writing, are treated as separate but related topics, each in a course of three and two days duration.
