Aalto subproject 1

Analysis and validation of requirements as networks and enterprise search engine for product development


  • How to extract, analyse and link requirements automatically?
  • How to specify, validate, simulate and repurpose of conceptual models using proven and repeatable science, engineering, and other disciplinary?


Automatic requirements' extraction and analysis



Specification, validation, simulation and repurpose of conceptual models



Benefits and use cases

What’s in it for Stakeholders interested by requirements analysis?

  • Important gain of productivity
  • Spending time on added value tasks and not on requirement management

What’s in it for modelling and simulation& stakeholders?

  • An efficient support framework for the creation of conceptual models
  • Reusable modelling primitives
