System requirements engineering is a key feature of complex systems engineering. This book proposes a method inspired by the best practices of system engineering standards: it favors a model-based systems engineering approach using the system modeling language SysML.
System Requirements Engineering is divided into two parts. Part 1 defines the context, definitions and main concepts of requirements engineering as well as relevant activities, before giving the proposed method, comprised of eight steps. Each step involves a discussion of the desired goal and how to achieve it using SysML.
Part 2, with the use of detailed examples, illustrates the methods used by treating a case study to define the needs of the stakeholders and the system requirements. Finally, the use of the SysML supported requirements engineering method is discussed in conjunction with the Harmony, Arcadia and CESAM engineering methods.
