Move Past Spreadsheets with a Modern Requirements Tool

Still using outdated technology to capture and manage your requirements? Move past spreadsheets and use a modern requirements management tool. Innoslate is a straightforward and convenient requirements tool. In this one-hour webinar, learn how you can manage requirements for complex systems and products. Using tools like Word and Excel causes errors late in the lifecycle. Innoslate makes it easier to keep your projects accurate, reduce your risks with quality analysis, and collaborate with your entire team.

What will be covered?

  • Capture requirements using the automated parse
  • Analyze the quality of your requirements, create baselines, reports, and diagrams
  • Develop traceability throughout the entire project lifecycle

What is PLM and Why It's Important

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) has many definitions, but do they really look at all the needs across the lifecycle? Are the commonly listed domains (Systems Engineering, Program Management, Product Design, Process Management for Manufacturing and Product Data Management) enough? This webinar helps define PLM in more depth and applies model-based systems engineering (MBSE) techniques and tools to show how to improve your PLM practice. It will include a demonstration of how Innoslate meets and exceeds the requirements for a PLM tool.

What will be covered?

  • What is PLM?
  • How Can MBSE Help?
  • How Can I Improve My PLM Practices?

Innoslate's Ontology

Everyone talks about "data-centricity," but what does that mean in practical terms. It means that you have to have a well defined ontology that can capture the information needed to describe the architecture or system you work with or want to create. An ontology is simply the taxonomy of entity classes (bins of information) and how those classes are related to each other. In this webinar, we discuss a relatively new ontology, the Lifecycle Modeling Language (LML). LML provides the basis for Innoslate's database schema. In this webinar, we discuss each entity class and why it was developed. Dr. Steven Dam, who is the Secretary of the LML Steering Committee, presents the details of the language and how it relates to other ontologies/languages, such as the DoDAF MetaModel 2.0 and SysML. He will also discuss the ways to visualize this information to enhance understanding of the information and how to use that information to make decisions about the architecture or system.

What will be covered?

  • Innoslate's Underlying Ontology
  • Other Languages such as SysML and the DoDAF 2.0
  • Visualize Innoslate's Ontology
  • Using the Schema Editor

Verification and Validation with Innoslate

This webinar will take you through the entire Verification and Validation (V&V) process using Innoslate. Expert systems engineer, Dr. Steven Dam will discuss what is V&V and why we should be implementing it early in the lifecycle. You will also learn how to prepare for the V&V process. Dr. Dam will show you how to apply Innoslate's ontology to V&V. Then he will discuss what actually makes a verifiable requirement. In a live demo, he will demonstrate how to create test plans, test processes, and test cases all with in Innoslate.

What will be covered?

  • V&V in the Early Stages of the Lifecycle
  • Preparing for V&V
  • Applying LML to V&V
  • What's Makes a Verifiable Requirement
  • Developing a V&V Plan in Innoslate

Model-Based Systems Engineering with Innoslate

The purpose of this webinar is to give you an overview of basic model-based systems engineering (MBSE) concepts. A systems engineer will lead you through all the features in Innoslate that implement MBSE.

This one hour webinar discusses the methodology of MBSE and the key features used to perform MBSE. Following the webinar is a Question and Answer session where the presenter will work with you to answer all your questions. During the Q&A portion, ask as many questions as you would like about using Innoslate or just understanding our methodology.

What will be covered?

  • Functional Modeling
  • Physical Modeling
  • End-to-End Traceability
  • Intelligence View
  • Discrete Event Simulator
  • Monte Carlo Simulator

Requirements Management with Innoslate

This one hour webinar will give you a step by step approach to Requirements Management and Analysis. A systems engineer will lead you through all the features in Innoslate that implement Requirements Management and Analysis.

Following the webinar is a 30 minute workshop where the presenter will work with you in live tool demonstration. This is your time, so ask as many questions as you have from support to general questions.

What will be covered?

  • Capturing requirements using the automated parser
  • Writing requirements
  • Checking quality of requirements
  • Tracing requirements to other model entities
  • Baselining requirements

Overview of DoDAF with Innoslate

Your webinar host, Dr. Steve Dam will provide you with an in-depth overview of the DoDAF 2.0 using the systems engineering software, Innoslate. Dr. Dam, the President and Founder of SPEC Innovations, participated in the development of DoDAF. He recently published "DoDAF 2.02 - A Guide to Applying System Engineering to Develop Integrated, Executable Architectures." The presenter will provide a live tool demonstration of Innoslate with a questions and answer session to follow. 

What will be covered?

  • Clear understanding of the DoDAF
  • Knowledge of what will make a good methodology
  • Applicable use of the DoDAF Dashboard in Innoslate
  • Overview of DM2 Concepts
  • Export to the Physical Exchange Specification
