    • Develop/Update Functional Design Specification (FDS) documents to system Change Requests (CRs)
    • Transform required capabilities and specific requirements from stakeholders into functional design specifications and requirements traceability artifacts
    • Act as owner of stakeholder CRs and associated documentation from CR initiation through successful deployment
    • Throughout the implementation of the CR, have primary responsibility for collecting and organizing information needed to document the processes supported and the functionality and requirements that are needed
    • Develop, maintain, and document business operations knowledge to facilitate future functional enhancements and serve as an internal expert for the business process
    • Use BPMN 2.0 to construct business process models to serve as a reference for all stakeholders.
    • Analyze process models to determine compliance with standards, conformance to modeling guidelines, identification of BPR opportunities, cross-process impacts, opportunities for reuse of data structures, and potential reuse of existing functions within the architecture.
    • After the initial process model is developed, develop/update a lightweight functional requirements document as a supporting architect to accompany the model
    • Develop wireframes and draft dashboards to help stakeholders gain a better understanding of what is going to be developed and assess if assessing gaps
    • Analyze requirements in terms of impacts, reuse of capabilities, and any pointers/links to available documentation on existing/related capabilities:
      • Are there potential impacts to other system components?
      • Are there any known blockers to the timely completion of the CR?
      • Do they necessitate technical updates to the system, or something else?
      • Does the system already have some capability to fulfill the requirements?
      • How long is implementation expected to take?
    • Act as owner of the business models, CR documents, test cases, and supporting requirements documentation that are stored in the preferred program documentation repository (e.g. SharePoint) and available to other teams throughout the SDLC
    • Incorporate business logic through documented rules that are added to the business process model as the requirements are further defined
    • Merge the revised requirements, the CR document, and the business models into a coherent FDS that clearly states the objectives and constraints of the desired functionality of the system. This functional specification includes sufficient detail to inform the technical implementation team of required capabilities and expectations, and includes detailed prototypes of system screens, dashboards, test reports, mappings, or other visual aspects of the requirements to be implemented
    • Completion of the CR functional design and subsequent stakeholder agreement that provides the development team with all information required to develop high-level technical design specifications
    • Collaborate with stakeholders in obtaining feedback on functional designs, discussing impacts found during risk analysis and observations made during the requirements validation stage
    • Based on feedback received from stakeholders, update business models in preparation for drafting the functional specification
