Introduction: Software Requirements 3rd Edition

Getting Started With Software Requirements 3rd Edition pdf, Since the first edition of this book(Software Requirements 3rd Edition), appeared in 1999, we have each worked on numerous projects and taught hundreds of classes on software requirements to people from companies and government agencies of all sizes and types. We’ve learned that these practices are used on virtually any project: small projects and large, new development and enhancements, with local and distributed teams, and using traditional and agile development methods. The techniques apply to hardware and systems engineering projects, too, not just software projects. As with any other technical practice, you’ll need to use good judgment and experience to learn how to make the methods work best for you. Think of these practices as tools to help ensure that you have effective conversations with the right people on your projects.

Benefits this book(Software Requirements 3rd Edition) provides

Of all the software process improvements you could undertake, improved requirements practices are among the most beneficial. We describe practical, proven techniques that can help you to:
■ Write high-quality requirements from the outset of a project, thereby minimizing rework and maximizing productivity.
■ Deliver high-quality information systems and commercial products that achieve their business objectives.
■ Manage scope creep and requirements changes to stay both on target and under control.
■ Achieve higher customer satisfaction.
■ Reduce maintenance, enhancement, and support costs.
Our objective is to help you improve the processes you use for eliciting and analyzing requirements, writing and validating requirements specifications, and managing the requirements throughout the software product development cycle. The techniques we describe are pragmatic and realistic. Both of us have used these very techniques many times, and we always get good results when we do.

The primary audience consists of individuals who serve as business analysts or requirements engineers on a development project, be they full-time specialists or other team members who sometimes fill the analyst role. A second audience includes the architects, designers, developers, testers, and other technical team members who must understand and satisfy user expectations and participate in the creation and review of effective requirements. Marketers and product managers who are charged with specifying the features and attributes that will make a product a commercial success will find these practices valuable. Project managers will learn how to plan and track the project’s requirements activities and deal with requirements changes. Yet another audience is made up of stakeholders who participate in defining a product that meets their business, functional, and quality needs.
