HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- QRA Corp released today a special report for project managers and engineers entitled 'Leveraging Natural Language Processing in Requirements Analysis: How to eliminate over half of all design errors before they occur.' The report presents the culmination of knowledge gathered from QRA's hugely successful QVscribe project: an experimental NLP tool intended to ignite a conversation about the importance of requirements.
The foundation of an engineering project starts at the earliest stage of collecting ideas and synthesizing those ideas into a cohesive set of requirements. This communication step is critical, yet prone to human error – introducing inconsistencies, oversights, and ambiguities.
QVscribe launched as an experiment on whether NLP could be leveraged to improve the early stages of requirements documents. The experiment was a major success. In less than three months, hundreds of engineering teams in over 25 countries requested QVscribe, a pilot project with the Canadian Government was under development, and a renewed interest in improving requirements sparked new conversations in the aerospace, automotive, IT, and defense industries.
This newly released report begins by examining the current research on applying Natural Language Processing to requirements documents - focusing on why the status quo & previous tools have failed. It then presents a new automated NLP solution for quick, customizable, and rigorous analysis of early-stage natural language requirements.
The full report covers:
- The exponentially rising costs to fix errors arising from the requirements
- An examination into where the majority of engineering errors causing rework originate - and how to avoid these errors
- The status quo… and why it misses so many requirements errors
- The advantages and process of leveraging NLP to build next generation requirements analysis tools
- How project managers and systems engineers can start leveraging NLP technology today
