The evolution in the design process is usually based on the choice of a method for designing the system, in which its preference is previously selected by a process available to use and not by an open selection process. An open system approach is both a technical approach to design concepts and a preferred business strategy that is becoming widely applied by manufacturers of large complex systems. Although systems engineering consider both the business and the technical needs of customers, their goals is to provide a quality product that meets all user needs. This paper describes the capabilities of using some available systems engineering standards (like EIA-632) in the design process. Then, a methodological approach will be proposed for the practice of requirements engineering by applying quality assessment and control to design in early phases. This paper also discusses the need for a rigorous systems engineering process, which incorporates open systems concepts and principles to make a design method more or less appropriate by promoting multiple sources of supply and technology insertion. To demonstrate the applicability and efficiency of those standards, an application case study focusing more on applying systems engineering concepts to the building design is described along with verification and validation processes.
