(www.siemens.com/mobility)The task on hand for Method Park Software AG was to make qualified contributions during the setting up of a requirement management system in the Mobility Division and to give on-site support to the people with responsibility. A special challenge was to establish a system of requirement management in five business units operating in different business segments (high-speed trains, traffic guidance systems, locomotives, baggage conveyor systems, etc.), with 25,000 employees at various locations in various regions. This is why the development of the requirement management methods and processes in the business units had to be organized extremely flexibly and at the same time comply with the guidelines which were valid division-wide.
