Requirements Engineering and Seven distinct tasks

Requirements Engineering and Seven distinct tasks


  • The broad spectrum of tasks and techniques that lead to an understanding of requirements is called requirements engineering. 
  • From a software process perspective, requirements engineering is a major software engineering action that begins during the communication activity and continues into the modeling activity. 
  • It must be adapted to the needs of the process, the project, the product, and the people doing the work. 
  • Requirements engineering builds a bridge to design and construction. 
  • Requirements engineering provides the appropriate mechanism for understanding what the customer wants, analyzing need, ssessing feasibility, negotiating a reasonable solution, specifying the solution unambiguously, validating the specification, and managing the requirements as they are transformed into an operational system. 
  • Seven distinct tasks 
    • inception
    • elicitation
    • elaboration
    • negotiation
    • specification
    • validation, and 
    • management.
  • Some tasks occurs in parallel.
