CARMENES is a high resolution spectrograph built for the 3.5m telescope at the Calar Alto Observatory by a consortium formed by 11 German and Spanish institutions. CARMENES is composed by two separated highly stabilized spectrographs covering the VIS and NIR wavelength ranges to provide high-accuracy radial-velocity measurements with long-term stability. The technical and managerial complexity of the instrument, with a fixed project deadline, demanded a strong system engineering control to preserve the high level requirements during the development, manufacturing, assembly, integration and verification phases.
