PaR - Processes as RequirementsAbout us

About us - The PaR Community


"First, don't be afraid. ...
Second, do what you think is right. ...
Finally, build a community.
No one does big things by themselves."

(President Obama, 18.May.2020)


Check out our past >PaR Community Gatherings<.


  If you want to join the PaR community:

  • Read and agree on the Code of Conduct as shown below.
  • Attend the Monthly event every 15th at >4pm<.
  • Join in with Microsoft Teams to watch and discuss.
  • Find next date and links on the >homepage<.

   Code of Conduct
  • We work together in this community to learn more about PaR, improve PaR, make PaR more useful, and bring or take PaR into the development projects.
  • We clearly understand that we all are professionals, and that one may join in just to make money with PaR in the markets out there.
  • We do not primarily join to make business within this community, although this may happen as a consequence.
  • We are aware of maybe existing business relationships within this community, and any resulting conflicts of interest are openly discussed and resolved together.
  • We commonly protect and support the established business areas and partners from this community (see sections below), but are open to change.
  • We respect and agree to the Creative Commons license1 for PaR2.

        1 see CC BY-SA 4.0 license, as described and referenced on the page "Impressum / Legal" in German and English
        2 "The Mug" (as it is), "The Booklet" (as published with ISBN) and "The Book" (as published with ISBN) are offered for sale exclusively by Ralf due to production costs and legal constraints.


  Wenn du an der PaR community teilhaben möchtest:

  • Lies und akzeptiere den unten stehenden Verhaltenskodex.
  • Komm zur monatlichen Veranstaltung an jedem 15. um >16:00<.
  • Nimm mit Microsoft Teams teil, um zu schauen und zu diskutieren.
  • Finde das nächste Datum und die Links auf der >Homepage<.

  • Wir arbeiten in dieser Community, um mehr über PaR zu erfahren, PaR zu verbessern, nützlicher zu machen und in Projekte einzubringen.
  • Wir verstehen klar, dass wir alle Profis sind und dass sich mancher auch einfach nur anschließt, um mit PaR auf den Märkten da draußen Geld zu verdienen.
  • Wir schließen uns nicht in erster Linie an, um innerhalb dieser Community Geschäfte zu machen, obwohl sich auch dies als Folge ergeben kann.
  • Wir sind uns bestehender Geschäftsbeziehungen innerhalb dieser Community bewusst und Interessenkonflikte werden offen diskutiert und gemeinsam gelöst.
  • Wir schützen und unterstützen etablierte Geschäftsbereiche und Partner dieser Community (siehe Abschnitte unten), bleiben jedoch offen für Veränderungen.
  • Wir respektieren die Creative-Commons-Lizenz1 für PaR2 und stimmen ihr zu.

        1 siehe CC BY-SA 4.0 Lizenz, wie auf der Seite "Impressum / Legal" auf Deutsch und Englisch beschrieben und referenziert
        2 "The Mug" (die Tasse, so wie sie ist), "The Booklet" (das Englische Heft, so wie mit ISBN publiziert) und "The Book" (das Buch, so wie mit ISBN publiziert)
           werden exklusiv von Ralf verkauft, weil damit Produktionskosten und rechtliche Einschränkungen verbunden sind.

PaR business partners

Some companies or people of the PaR Community became specialists for offering assets or professional services in the context of PaR, based on the Code of Conduct above and according to the table further down.

(Ralf, Martin, Bernhard, Sascha, Frank)

We list the companies here in historical order from early to new.



>Ralf Bürger< is the original mind behind PaR. Ralf is self-employed, legally as freelancer. SSE means "Systematic Software Engineering" and says what Ralf does, also beyond PaR.

In the context of PaR you may book Ralf for consulting, conferences and for trainings. Certifications are not yet available, but will be the consequence of the planned trainings.



>KoDeCs GmbH< is a powerful and networked team for developing embedded systems in vehicle industries, for OEMs as well as for suppliers.

In the context of PaR you can buy ready-to-use requirements sets for regulatory standards (e.g. ISO 26262, ISO 21434, ASPICE) from KoDeCs and you can book them for support in implementing corporate development processes.

KoDeCs also is expert for the JAMA and PTC toolsets and can support applying them for PaR.

  Fraunhofer IESE

>Fraunhofer IESE< (Institute for Experimental Software Engineering) is one of 74 institutes and research facilities of the Fraunhofer society. Together they play a key role in shaping applied research in Europe and contribute to Germany's international competitiveness.

In the context of PaR Fraunhofer IESE can be booked to determine the capability of companies for applying PaR. This usually is a 3-5 day onsite analysis session, together with project teams, process experts and tool configurators.

Fraunhofer IESE also is expert for the Polarion toolset and can support applying it for PaR. Max Schmitt from Fraunhofer IESE also supported creating the content of the booklet "PaR - for Polarion" (see page Downloadable).
