Title: Requirements Efficiency: External Questionnaire Results.

Abstract

Efficiency in requirements engineering and management (REM) for complex hardware systems is desirable to reduce program impacts, such as schedule and budget. Sandia National Labs (SNL) investigated external state-of-the-practice REM to capture insights, recommendations, and best practices from external entities on several REM topics. Twenty-one at-will participants contributed responses to closed- and open-ended questions. The results were synthesized and are provided herein. The results help SNL and others to understand where its practices are current; what trends, approaches, or processes in REM might be beneficial if implemented or introduced; what challenges might be avoided; where efficiencies might be realized; and which practices are still maturing or evolving in industry and academia, so that SNL can stay abreast of these developments. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors thank all those who participated in this questionnaire. We appreciated the time spent assisting us and enjoyed the lively conversations.
