Requirements Management When Introducing New Mechatronic Sub-systems - Managing the Knowledge Gaps
Paper in proceeding, 2010

This paper describes an empirical study of a driveline development project, featuring a new mechatronic sub-system, aiming to investigate the effect of knowledge gaps regarding the new sub-system on the development process. Findings indicate that knowledge gaps regarding interfaces and suppliers of the new sub-system and a lack of appropriate processes, methods and IT-tools have negatively affected requirements management. A set of recommendations on likely knowledge gaps when introducing new mechatronic sub-systems and how to bridge them prior to development project initiation are presented.
