Product Overview

How to Use The Software Requirements Memory JoggerTM The Software Requirements Memory Jogger? is a quick reference guide for you to use on the job or as a supplement to your training. It is designed to facilitate communication between business and technical teams as they define requirements for software projects. It includes the tools, techniques, and models team members will use to elicit, analyze, specify, validate, and manage their software requirements. The book also contains a case study example, set off on a blue background, to show you how to use these tools, techniques, and models in each step of the process.Not sure what tool, technique, or model to use? Just refer to the User Requirements Model Roadmap in Chapter 4 to direct your efforts. Then refer to the "What Tools and Techniques Will I Use?" chart at the beginning of each chapter to guide you through the process of defining the requirements.Because many of the terms in this book may not be defined by readers in exactly the same way, we have included a glossary as one of the book's appendices, to ensure that all readers "speak the same language." The terms that are included in the glossary are shown in blue italics the first time they appear in the text, to let you know that the term is defined in the back of the book.You will also find a list of references and resources in the back of the book, in case you want to further your understanding of the tools and concepts in this Memory Jogger?. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive, but it does include the resources that the author felt would be the most helpful to the reader at the time of publication.We hope that you will find this book to be an invaluable tool that you will use often as you define, develop, and manage your requirements.Contents Acknowledgments ..iii Publisher's Note iv How to Use The Software Requirements Memory Jogger? v 1.
