Requirements-Management Requirements --


Requisite Doors to Success


by: Alfred Kromholz

Tuesday July 24, 2012


Defining and managing requirements continues to be an ongoing problem in almost every enterprise� not only software requirements but in every aspect of production. Tools to help manage requirements have been around for a long time, perhaps not in geological or archaeological terms but certainly as seen from the perspective of our rapidly-evolving industry. But despite our need for requirements-management tools, both our use of these tools and the tools themselves are disappointingly primitive. For example, in software, we tend to talk a lot about �traceability,� but for us traceability often equates to requirements decomposition � the �how� of achieving the purpose of a product - rather than the �why� � the value that product and its requirements contribute to the customer.
