Standards are the bottleneck of any aviation industrial action. Thus, meeting standards is not an option but an obligation throughout a given product life cycle. The implementation of the standards and the evaluation process are complicated and need considerable resources. Simultaneously, Extra costs and concerns may be imposed on the aviation industry due to improper requirements. Thus, the quality of standards should be comprehensively assessed to obtain a satisfactory final result. System engineering introduces requirement analysis to solve this problem. As a significant contribution, this paper provides a method of requirement analysis based on the structured strategy. The criteria were defined practically. Diagram, process, sub-process, and techniques including RTM and WBS were either developed or deployed to investigate the conformance of requirements with the criteria. Applying this method, any sort of requirement is evaluated accurately. Plus, it shows a specific and root cause of the problems if the requirement is unacceptable. Furthermore, a novel way to measure system affordability is proposed through the application of DFMEA. Lastly, the model is applied on CFR-14 Part-21 Subpart-G (FAA production organization requirements) to show the need for systematic improvement of aviation standards’ requirements of production organization.
