Concept development is important to all organization types and structures. Auxilium believe for an organization to grow from a product standpoint as well as a resource footprint, the organization must be able to discuss and entertain innovative ideas. This cannot happen without having requirements and a requirements analysis process.
Lifecycle Management encompasses those tasks that go into determining the needs and/or conditions that drive a new or altered product, taking account of the possibly conflicting requirements, and various stakeholders. This all begins with eliciting, analyzing, documenting, validating and managing requirements.
Auxilium International understands that concept development allows for broad and sometimes ill-defined ideas a chance to be examined by groups Subject Matter Experts (SME) that make up organizations and teams. These ideas can come from a variety of different sources: e.g. end user, program manager, systems engineer, contracts expert and many other disciplines that make up Integrated Product Teams (IPT)s.
These concepts do not just apply to programs or projects that are being acquired, but they can also dramatically improve/enhance organizational processes, and operational experience. When a compelling concept emerges, Auxilium International has experience in commencing the process that formulates physical requirements eventually evolving into a total system solution. To support concept development and requirements analysis Auxilium International offers specific services such as:
- Conducting the How, Where, and What
