Requirements management with EA

Technical standards are established as a kind of norm or general requirement with respect to the development of technical systems. Usually, technical standards are developed iteratively, where text documents are used as work products which are subject to continuous negotiations. In this talk the requirement-driven development process of the “Distributed Co-Simulation Protocol” (DCP) specification is retraced. The DCP is a standardized communication protocol on software application level. It can be used for the development of automotive advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) or hardware-in-the-loop testing. Unlike most other technical standards, the DCP specification was engineered on the foundation of written requirements, formulated by an inhomogeneous group of stakeholders. Enterprise Architect was used in the workflow of DCP developers to collect and manage these requirements.
