Papers: Full of Information, read in half an hour.

White papers and articles are great for reading something that's a little longer, and goes a little deeper.

Implementor Guide

The ReqIF Implementation Guide

ReqIF is a very powerful file format – almost too powerful: Interoperability between the various ReqIF implementations is problematic. To address this, Prostep iViP, a non-profit, organized an implementor forum to address this. This paper outlines the topics covered in the Implementor Guide.
ISO/IEC/IEEE 29148

White Paper: ISO 29148 Requirements Engineering

The ISO/EC/IEEE 29148 is the ISO standard on requirements engineering for software and systems engineering. You can purchase the standard from the ISO website. In this white paper, you find an overview of the standard and an idea of its content.
Introduction to ReqIF

Introduction to ReqIF

The primary sources of project risks and product problems are poor, missing, or changing requirements. Often, the underlying root cause is insufficient collaboration between business partners. This article provides insight into how to effectively collaborate in requirements engineering. We describe the Requirements Interchange Format (ReqIF) standard and technologies for seamless requirements development and management.
Introduction to Safety Standards

Introduction to Safety Standards

This article provides an overview of safety standards like IEC 61508, and describes how ReqIF can help to support the development of save systems.
Integrating Requirements and Formal Models

Integrating Requirements and Formal Models

Once requirements engineering and management are mastered, integrating them into your systems development process is the logical next step. This article describes how such an integration could look like, using the Event-B modeling language as an example.
