VISIONEER GmbH is a start-up company and official Technology Partner of Polarion that intends to take new steps in smart requirement engineering and has developed new tools to improve current system- and requirement- architecture/engineering.
The founder Gerhard Schilling has invented a method for object-oriented requirement engineering and smart interface requirement handling, that enables automatic generation and synchronization of textual specifications out of a model. VISIONEER’s engineering team has wide automotive experiences in multiple engineering functions and are specialists for SE, RE and Architecture.
For this purpose, a new model language RML (Requirement Modelling Language) was developed, that is integrated in the VISIONEER Tool and enables OO-RE, a smart interface handling and a proof of completeness, unambiguity and consistency of requirement specifications.
Based on this ability, a new role in the V-Model is created: The Requirement Architect, who is creating a model for the requirement specification structure based on the system architecture structures. It has turned out that this process is the missing link between system architecture and requirement engineering to reach the “Single-Source-of-Truth”, which is currently unreached, is gained for all working products of the V-Modell.
Any System Architecture Model created with the tool Capella can be imported and used as base for the derived Requirement Architecture and merged with System Kit Elements for Embedded Systems to generate complete specification structures including all expected contents.
Through Capellas capability of system/subsystem synchronization, it is thus secured, that any structural change in the system model (OEM) is automatically performed in all derived subsystem working products (TIER1) , e.g. Requirement- or Test- Specifications, SW Design,..
Together with to RE tool developer and Technology Partner Polarion, a Tool Chain is built that covers all Work Products of the V-Modell and enables an interdisciplinary "Model Based Development".
Visioneer applied for two patents:
- published PCT: WO 2018/206146 "Method for Computer aided, automated verification of requirements"
- (not yet published): "Method for the creation of requirements to describe technical processes"
