Abstract:

The development of Operational Requirements OR for military platforms is a complex and tedious task, for which many aspects need to be addressed integral and for which few tools are available. This task is usually performed by temporary placed military personnel trying their best to deliver a list of relevant OR. The RNLA has a need for a methodical approach and associated tools, providing a means to enhance the quality but also the re-use of OR. Key is an integral approach not only aimed at the functionality of the platform but also at the crew and many other relevant and interacting viewpoints. The paper gives a description of the process to arrive at a set of operational requirements and a description of the tools that may be used to support the process. A distinction is made between new OR for systems and mid-life upgrades and mission dependent add-ons. Fictitious examples are given in the description and explanation.
