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 a 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 always the basis.
Projects often fail because either requirements are not understood or requirements are constantly changing.
Often, solutions are sought before a problem is even fully understood.
The tasks of requisition engineering are determination, testing and coordination as well as documentation and administration of requirements.
his requires experts with diverse skills. HighPots offers you this expertise.

The most important features of 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.
