Derive

Manage your in-service capability and availability requirements

Tool overview: what will Derive solve for me?

Derive was originally developed with a major DE&S Project Team to support the direct capture from operators key in-service requirements and to track individual system requirements in order to deliver better capability to meet operation demands. Derive now ensures the management and sustainment of capability is as efficient as possible by enabling the capture, prioritization, organization and grouping of requirements right to the point of embodiment.

The ability to group and forecast new requirement embodiment deems it an invaluable management tool for capability and systems output planning, particularly when linked with our financial management tools. Linking grouped requirements with the financial commitment now offers comparable cost of capability upgrades.
