We are offering a Requirements' Engineering Course using our new MS4 Me Requirement's Modeling and Simulation Platform.
Translating stakeholder needs into requirements is difficult. It requires a clear understanding of the problem and clear communication of the time, material and multiple resource constraints to designers, developers and implementers. Good requirements'engineering is not an event, but a process that requires negotiation and revision until the stakeholders' vision is aligned with the reality of what actually can be done with the available resources.
MS4 Me is a requirements' engineering modeling and simulation platform that allows you to convert stakeholders' words, intent and meaning into a design that can be visualized in terms of material, resources and timing. The model can be built and simulated in real-time allowing you to negotiate requirements with your stakeholders in the most efficient manner yet possible.
MS4 Me is easy to use and only takes a few hours of training to get started, but is extremely powerful and scales to any size project. The same tool can be used by managers then architects/designers and ultimately engineers and technicians who can drill down to the finest and most sophisticated mathematical detail. The same platform that collects the requirements can execute the simulation on a laptop, and then be exteneded to a cluster, grid or a massively parallel super computer. Simple, Powerful ??Elegant.
We will be offering several courses per year. If this course does not fit your schedule, please let us know if you are interested and will let you know when the next course will be offered.
Requirements Engineering With MS4 Me Columbia, MD

The course covers the basics of systems concepts and discrete event systems specification (DEVS), a computational basis for system theory. It demonstrates the application of DEVS to "virtual build and test" requirements engineering in complex information-intensive systems development. The DEVSME Requirements Engineering Environment leverages the power of the DEVS modeling and simulation methodology. A particular focus is the application of model-based data engineering in today's data rich ??and information challenged ??system environments.
Bernard P. Zeigler is chief scientist for RTSync, Zeigler has been chief architect for simulation-based automated testing of net-centric IT systems with DoD's Joint Interoperability Test Command as well as for automated model composition for the Department of Homeland Security. He is internationally known for his foundational text Theory of Modeling and Simulation, second edition (Academic Press, 2000), He was named Fellow of the IEEE in recognition of his contributions to the theory of discrete event simulation.
Phillip Hammonds is a senior scientist for RTSync, He co-authored (with Professor Zeigler). the 2007 book, "Modeling & Simulation-Based Data Engineering: Introducing Pragmatics into Ontologies for Net-Centric Information Exchange". Elsevier Press. He has worked as a technical director and program manager for several large DoD contractors where skilled requirements and data engineering were critical to project success.
