Change analysis and costing The effect of the proposed change is assessed using traceability information and general knowledge of the system requirements. Once this analysis is completed, a decision is made whether or not to proceed with the requirements change. Change implementation The requirements document and, where necessary, the system design and implementation, are modified. Ideally, the document should be organized so that changes can be easily implemented. Chapter 4 Requirements Engineering 63 30/10/2014 Requirements change management Chapter 4 Requirements Engineering 64 30/10/2014 Key points Requirements for a software system set out what the system should do and define constraints on its operation and implementation. Functional requirements are statements of the services that the system must provide or are descriptions of how some computations must be carried out. Non-functional requirements often constrain the system being developed and the development process being used. They often relate to the emergent properties of the system and therefore apply to the system as a whole. Chapter 4 Requirements Engineering 65 30/10/2014 Key points The requirements engineering process is an iterative process that includes requirements elicitation, specification and validation. Requirements elicitation is an iterative process that can be represented as a spiral of activities requirements discovery, requirements classification and organization, requirements negotiation and requirements documentation. You can use a range of techniques for requirements elicitation including interviews and ethnography. User stories and scenarios may be used to facilitate discussions.

12/12/2018 12 Key points Requirements specification is the process of formally documenting the user and system requirements and creating a software requirements document. The software requirements document is an agreed statement of the system requirements. It should be organized so that both system customers and software developers can use it. Chapter 4 Requirements Engineering 67 30/10/2014 Key points Requirements validation is the process of checking the requirements for validity, consistency, completeness, realism and verifiability. Business, organizational and technical changes inevitably lead to changes to the requirements for a software system. Requirements management is the process of managing and controlling these changes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
