Advisory in program definition
Submarines, naval vessels, floating offshore energy structures and special ships are highly integral and complex vessels. Only when the totality of a complex system is under consideration it is possible to identify and define all elements and control the performance and risks. During the program definition phase, Nevesbu supports clients by setting up a structured requirements environment to manage the evidence base. We also provide concept explorations to support the development and balancing of requirements and to make supportable decisions to validate requirements and test assumptions.
