This paper argues that there are new insights to be gained from a strategic analysis of requirements engineering. The paper is motivated hi, a simple question: what does it take to be a world class software acquirer? The question has relevance for requirements engineers because for many, organisations market pressures mean that software is commonly acquired rather than developed from scratch. This paper builds on the work of Fine  who suggests that product, process and supply chain should be designed together - 3D concurrent Engineering, Using a number of reference theories it proposes a systematic way of carrying out 3-D concurrent engineering. The paper concludes that the critical activity in supply chain design is the design of the distribution of skills and the nature of contracts.
