Requirements Management 101 for Semiconductor Suppliers

Semiconductor engineers in the automotive industry understand the fundamental importance of requirements management (RM), but many critical stakeholders don’t. The challenge with this disparity comes when implementing RM in a modern development environment. From technical specs hundreds of pages long to coordinating cross-functional deliverables, the complications are abundant. Additionally, engineers face rapid advancements in algorithmic reasoning, semiconductor memory and sensor technologies, all of which further complicate things. Executives might not care about the details of functional specifications, but they do care about delivering what was promised to customers on time — and that’s the real value of RM.
