Keynote Presentation: Mastering the Requirements Process
(Suzanne Robertson)

Increases in organizational and technological complexity have raised awareness of the need for clear, understandable, unambiguous requirements. But how do we find these requirements and how do we communicate and manage them? This presentation addresses these questions by looking at:

  • What are requirements?
  • The requirements knowledge model
  • The requirements process
  • Stakeholders, Goals and Scope
  • Trawling techniques
  • Product Use-cases
  • Prototyping
  • Quality Gateway

Requirements Typology
(Eric Callebaut, Method Consulting)

The main intent of this presentation is to outline a typology/classification of requirements with different capturing techniques, and to illustrate this by a case study. The case study is taken from a major offshore development project with an Indian company, because 'requirements management' is even more critical in an offshoring context.

  • Requirements Levels
    • Overview of requirements stakeholders and deliverables (e.g. business case, product vision, requirements specs, functional specs, test specs,...)
  • Requirements Types
    • Project requirements/constraints: overview
    • Functional requirements: overview, methods for capturing and structuring (e.g. use case modeling), examples
    • Non-functional requirements: overview, documentation templates (e.g. Volere) , examples
  • Case study
    • Requirements web from offshore development project with India (Patni Computer Systems)
Case story: Reusing requirements and protecting IP
(Rudi Stans, Vision Consort)
  • Re-usability of requirements
  • Managing IP assets
  • Securing knowledge
  • Maintainability
