Requirements Engineering

Engineering Satisfaction!

Every company works differently. From the markets it addresses and the products it offers via its internal processes and organizational structures to the skills and preferences of its individual employees – no company is like any other one. It therefore often makes little sense to introduce a standardized, textbook-like requirements process or more profound training in universal requirements engineering concepts.

We at Fraunhofer IESE therefore believe that processes, methods, techniques, and tools should always be oriented towards the individual circumstances of an organization. This is why we collaborate with our customers to jointly develop customized solutions for requirements engineering and management that match the individual needs and challenges in the best possible way. Due to our proximity to research, we also take into account state-of-the-art technology trends such as Smart Ecosystems, Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Digitalization, Crowdsourcing, etc.

In the past 20 years, we have been able to prove the significant added value of this customized approach in the form of increases in efficiency and quality in numerous projects with renowned customers from a variety of different industries.
