  • Subsystem integration by e.g. technical requirement documentation, Hard- and Software interface management, type testing
  • Support validation of the functional design including preparation of test specifications
  • Verify the functional design in course of the development process by simulation of functional models
  • Manage configurations and changes to ensure integrity of the baselines
  • Drive decisions to manage performance and prevent delays on the development schedule
