ReConf 2018 is coming up, taking place on March 6 and 7 2018 in Munich. ReConf is one of the biggest conferences on Requirements Engineering in Europe. Dr. Michael Jastram will be present with two talks: “Agile Systems Modeling: Contradiction in Terms?” and “Functional Safety and Agile, is this possible?” Unfortunately for the readers of this blog, the talks will be in German.
Besides these two, here are 4 talks that hold the promise of being worth visiting.
Themes & Tracks
The theme of this year’s ReConf is “Walking new ways”. This is indeed necessary, as many well-functioning methods slowly reach their limits. However, more powerful approaches only make sense with a certain size or complexity. We are now reaching the point where the market requires change.
ReConf 2018: Walking new ways, as many well-functioning methods slowly reach their limits.
ReConf 2018 is organized into four themes, and here is our choice for each of these themes:
Dealing with humans is a major challenge in systems engineering. This talk explicitly addresses implications of dealing with different types of people.
Not just a new way, but also agile. This is particularly interesting, as Michael Jastram will speak in his talk about agile modeling as well.
This talk concerns modeling as well, but not necessarily agile. Aviation has always been a driver of innovation, and practitioners in functional safety will probably learn quite a bit in this talk. It deals explicitly with Standard RTCA DO-331, which complements the well-known standard DO-178C (Certification of Avionic Software). Heavy-weight? Maybe. Still, relevanta for all who are concerned with functional safety.
This talk takes “Management by Objective” to a new level. Objectives and Key Results (OKR) are an advancement of this principle. Here, the goals are quantified. We consider this management approach efficient and pleasant. Again a topic involving humans, and quite important.
Hope to see you at ReConf 2018!
