The more tools that are used, the higher the
quality of the requirements.
Defects During Requirements Definition
The following are defects that frequently occur
during the requirements definition phase because
they are inadequate or partially missing:
- Operating rules (or information)
- Performance Criteria
- Environment information
- System mission information
Requirements, Step 6
This WEBinar will describe important techniques to quality control check the accuracy of the
