As a leading international defence organisation we have an opportunity for an individual to join our Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (AISR) business in support of the delivery of complex mission systems.
Reporting to the Airborne ISR Requirements Lead, the successful candidate will be responsible for the management of requirements engineering governance, providing assistance to the team on complex technical data in support of new and existing programmes.
The Requirements Manager (RM) will take ownership of, and be main point of contact for, the customer requirements. Demonstrating leadership, they will facilitate the delivery of a system that meets customer expectation and proven to conform through successive levels of abstraction to delivery of the final product.
Maintaining an accurate history of the evolution of the system requirement set; ensuring all supporting information is linked and readily accessible.
Work with the Lead Systems Engineer to select and tailor an appropriate SE lifecycle to support the maintenance of the Requirement Management Plan, and data model that conforms to the Systems Engineering Management Plan and change management policy as defined by the Configuration Manager.
Maintain ownership of the customer requirements throughout the development lifecycle on behalf of Raytheon Technologies. Monitor requirements artefacts to verify completeness and accuracy of data. Co-ordinate changes with the document originators whilst aligning with customer and company policies and procedures.
Work with the engineering team to develop, trace, analyse and qualify system requirements to decompose higher-level functions to lower-levels and trace the allocation of requirements to those functions, and understand the need for functional models.
Define the process to trace verification requirements back to system requirements and vice versa, in-line with the integration, verification and validation plan for a complex system to prepare evidence for Customer acceptance and certification.
Liaise with the Configuration and Data Management (CMDM) Team as a member of the Configuration Control Board (CCB). Providing mediation between customer and system design engineers on behalf of the SDA to assess the financial and schedule impacts of change and highlight risks to the programme.
Liaise with the Special Response Team (SRT) Requirements Engineer, specify bespoke views and reports in support of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and metrics, as required by Engineering and Programme Management.
Ensure that the requirements of all lifecycle stages are addressed at the correct point in the System design and consideration should be given to the design attributes such as manufacturability, testability, reliability, maintainability, safety, security, flexibility, interoperability, capability growth, disposal ,cost, natural variations etc.
Manage the Engineering Risk, Dependencies and Assumptions register, chair meetings and reviews.
Carry out audits of the RM database and procedures to ensure the overall coherence and cohesion of the "evolving" design of a system is maintained, in a verifiable manner, throughout the lifecycle, whilst complying with the certification requirements.
Participate in process improvement activities and communicate Requirement Management policies and procedures to all project stakeholders, including lessons learned.
For current and future projects, liaise with the Performance Excellence Team to support the development and deployment of training for the current RM toolsets (DOORS™).
Support the development of RM competencies within the AISR Engineering community in accordance with the INCOSE UK Framework.
Line Management for Requirements Engineers deployed within AISR projects and support to other Engineering disciplines undertaking requirements engineering activities.
Liaise with Engineering function, and other RM professionals to support the creation and sustainment a roadmap for improvement of the RM toolset.
Skilled in stakeholder identification and engagement in the Systems Engineering context.
Systems Engineering experience developing products and systems through all or some of the following: Requirements Capture; Analysis; Architecture; Modelling; Design & Development; Integration; Verification and Validation on complex military or equivalent systems.
Understand what a system is, its context within its environment, its boundaries and interfaces across the System lifecycle.
Knowledge of V-Model, Iterative Development and/or Agile methods of development.
Understand the principles of architectural design and its role within the System lifecycle.
Experience in planning, estimating and defining engineering tasks and documenting them in a plan. Recognise the scope and limitations of models and simulations, including definition, implementation and analysis to show how a particular object or phenomenon will behave.
To become familiar with domains that may be unknown, you must have the ability to understand and analyse complicated problems and relationships. Experience in management of technical dependencies, assumptions, exclusions, risks and opportunities associated with the System of Interest (SoI) across the lifecycle.
Skilled in capturing, reviewing, managing change to the System and Software Requirements. Creating a baseline history at key milestones throughout the development lifecycle.
Mentorship and support to the engineering domain experts as a Subject Matter Expert in Requirements Engineering.
Eligible for or holder of current SC security clearance as a minimum (RSL will sponsor as required)
Bachelor's Degree in an Engineering or Science based subject.
Certified to INCOSE (ASEP/CSEP) or IREB professional standards.
Familiar with working in an Integrated Product Team (IPT) participating in essential acquisition and development activities in a cross-functional team.
Familiar with the UK MoD Knowledge in Defence (KiD) Requirements and Acquisition Framework.
Experience with Certification & Airworthiness standards
Skilled in creating bespoke views and reports using DXL scripts.
