Solution Requirements describe the various characteristics of a solution that must be met. The solution may be a process solution or a system solution. Solution requirements should be written in a way that they also support and align with the Stakeholder and Business Requirements. Solution requirements are defined throughout the requirements analysis process. They can be further classified into two sub-categories: Functional Requirements describe the behavior and information that the solution will manage. In the case of a non-system solution, the behavior typically refers to a workflow and the information refers to the inputs and outputs of the workflow. Additionally, the requirements describe how the data will be transformed and by whom. In the case of a system solution, the functional requirements describe the features and functionality of the system as well as the information that will be created, edited, updated, and deleted by the system. Non-functional Requirements describe the qualities of the process or system. Instead of describing what the solution must do non-functional requirements describe how well the solution must do something. Non-functional requirements often describe qualities of a process or system such as its repeatability, usability, reliability, interoperability, scalability, extensibility, etc. Transition Requirements describe any capabilities of the solution that aren’t permanent but instead exist

only to facilitate the transition from the current state to the future state. Once the process or system has been developed and the transition of users and information from the current solution to the new solution has occurred, these capabilities will no longer be needed or supported. Transition requirements cannot be developed until both the current state and the future solution have been defined. 90. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using screen mockups in the requirements gathering process of a system solution? Screen mockups can support the requirements gathering process when introduced at the right time, but if introduced too early they can become problematic. Here are a few key points that an analyst should remember. 1) Mockups are nice because they help the business representatives or clients visualize the functionality of the system. This can be a big advantage to help analysts and stakeholders identify problems early on. However, if introduced too soon in the process the natural tendency is for the business reps/clients to try and be screen designers. Instead of stating that the system shall support "x", they beginning saying that they need a dropdown to capture "y" and a button to do "z". The client is not a UI designer; in fact few business analysts truly are, so this can lead to a screen design which does not have an appropriate emphasis on usability.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
