Owing to strong market growth for medical devices deployed in critical-care facilities, development organizations in medical engineering must continually look for opportunities to drive engineering efficiency and cost effectiveness. Furthermore, cycle time must decrease, the alignment of clinical workflow is breaking down departmental barriers, and an increased amount of product functionality is being realized in software. To help meet such challenges, adequate requirements engineering is necessary. Toward that end, Syngo (a business unit of the Imaging and Therapy division of Siemens) introduced Feature-Oriented Requirements Engineering (FORE) and developed a business case for using it in the context of a lean engineering program. FORE integrates with other engineering disciplines such as project management, software architecture, and test management. There was an error in the biographical information for Tobias Stenzel. Stenzel's biography should have indicated that he has an MS in industrial engineering and management from the University of Technology Karlsruhe, Germany.
