Sorry, I think that's nonsense. So I won't be explaining it to any students (except as an example of nonsense).

The Praxis/Altran publications referenced by Martyn, including the Tokeneer work, are some of the evidence as to why it's nonsense. Others are referenced in the paper (see comments on requirements consistency checking. Michael Jackson references papers by Mats Heimdahl and David Harel with pertinent examples in aerospace critical systems).
