Requirements List

Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.
Charles Eames

What is included on a requirements list is based on why you need the requirements list in the first place.

It could be as simple as just the requirements themselves. If you are brainstorming a new idea, the requirements list could be a simple list on a napkin.

In a large complicated critical project that interfaces with other applications, the requirements list would need to be more very formal with a large number of attributes.

Figure out what you are using the list for and then pick the attributes.

Some common requirements list attributes are:

  • Requirement Id
  • Date Created
  • Author
  • Source
  • Requirement
  • Priority
  • Status
  • Complexity
  • Effort
  • Risk
  • Implementation Version
