Requirements Engineering / Requirements Management – from the novel Alice in Wonderland
„Could you please tell me which way to go from here?“ Alice asks.
„It depends on where you want to go,“ the cat answers.
„I don’t know“ says Alice
„Then it doesn’t matter where you go“ the cat replies
Requirements – Understanding Requirements Correctly
Requirements Engineering is the foundation of every project. No matter how big the project is. The foundation of a company, the construction of a space station, the development of a complex application or the development of a simple website – solid requirments engineering is the basis.
Projects often fail because the requirements are not understood or because the requirements are constantly changing.
Often solutions are sought before the problem is fully understood.
The tasks of requisition engineering are the determination, testing and coordination as well as the documentation and administration of the requirements.
This requires experts with diverse skills. HighPots offers you this expertise.

Our Requirements Engineering Consultants have these skills.
And many years of experience as requisition engineers.
In most cases, our requirements engineering consultants already had other roles in companies in previous years.
Most of our requirements engineers also have extensive experience and certifications in the areas of software development, software architecture, data analysis, project management or worked as business analysts.

The most important requirements in Requirements Engineering
In requirements management, our requirements engineers distinguish between functional requirements and non-functional requirements.
Functional requirements usually come from the specialist department. Functional requirements define what a product or software should do. A functional requirement would be, for example, „the software should calculate the distance between Earth and Moon every day at midnight (Berlin time)“. In requirement engineering, functional requirements are also called FR.
Non-functional requirements are, for example, quality requirements. Quality requirements are, for example, reliability, performance, availability or usability.
Boundary conditions also belong to the non-functional requirements. Examples would be budget, deadlines or architecture. Non-functional requirements are also called NFR in requirement engineering.
