Concept Development and Requirements Analysis (SIN 871-2)

Scope: DTB Integrated Product Development or systems engineering methodology is customized to provide all necessary design concept development and requirements analysis studies. The phases problem identification studies; requirements analysis; evaluation of alternative approaches; and conceptual design analysis are viewed from the technical, cost and schedule standpoints, resulting in preliminary specification development and conceptual design. In addition, DTB can perform assessment studies supporting privatization (OMB A-76 Studies) and/or evaluate outsourcing opportunities.

Concept Development and Requirement Analysis

Objectives: Concept Development and Requirements Analysis studies are efforts to organize and evaluate available data to provide a greater understanding of the individual study area. Studies and analysis, using systems engineering methodologies lead to critical examination of the subject, resulting in conclusions and recommendations that provide a firm basis for program planning and decision making. The objectives of the study are to (1) define its purpose and scope, (2) gather information, (3) synthesize solutions, (4) perform tradeoff and alternative analysis, and (5) document the results. The final result could be an individual study analysis and recommendations (such as problem identification) or a complete program defining a new conceptual design.
