Mastering the Requirements Process

Getting Requirements Right

Suzanne Robertson, James Robertson

The analysts use two devices to make it easier to write their specification. The first device, the requirements specification template, is an outline and guide to writing a requirements specification. The business analysts use it as a checklist of the requirements they should be asking for, and as a consistent way of organizing their requirements documents. The second device is a shell, also known as a snow card. Each atomic (that’s the lowest level) requirement is made up of a number of attributes, and the snow card is a convenient layout for ensuring that each requirement has the correct constituents.
