MBSE to Address Logical Text-Based Requirements Issues

Requirements quality is big problem which causes projects to delay and be out of budget. This means a lot of money in case of complex SE projects (Fig 1). Traditional requirement management toolsquality problem address by using natural language analysis with different rules to check for requirements duplication, overlapping, and bad language. Most of those […]
