For overseas delegates who wish to attend the event please note that BCS do not issue invitation letters.
A major contributory factor to project development disasters is inadequate understanding of what the system is intended to do. This creates ambiguities and misunderstandings and makes verification pointless. Reliable systems need a clear set of requirements and then have to be able to measure how the system as implemented conforms to those requirements.
For many mission critical applications, the requirements of the application need to be mapped against the demands of a safety standard. For non-critical systems they need to be mapped against profit and loss.
Chris will be looking at requirements generally but will also review some of the methods available that help ease the tasks of defining requirements for projects in general. Unless your software is a hobby can you afford not see this presentation?
