Requirements Engineering Training


Requirements are critical key aspects of any project, or sub-section of a project. Requirements define what system or product will be built. Many problems found during design, testing, verification, validation,  or operation of a system are the result of incorrect, incomplete, or missing requirements. Needs are usually vague, implicit [unstated], or described in terms of technical solutions.  Verifying that the requirements are correct  is an important function of systems and assurance engineers.

Requirements specification is a document that clearly and accurately describes the essential requirements for items, materials, or services including the procedures by which it can be determined that the requirements have been met.

Learn about requirements engineering and specification writing. Specifications are the written requirements for a material, product, or service for a proposed project, like a building, bridge or machine.Specifications help avoid duplication and inconsistencies, allow for accurate estimates of necessary work and resources, act as a negotiation and reference document for engineering changes, provide documentation of configuration, and allow for consistent communication among those responsible for different functions of Systems Engineering.

Requirements can also be classified by the role they play in the system. This classification will vary, depending on the organization or project. The following list of requirements types is commonly used in many government organizations.
