Requirements Pattern

Regarding the structure of requirements (in the sense of business driven requirements that should be implemented at least partially within a software system), specific structures can be recognised which are - amongst others - related to

  • the way you structure requirements, i.e. how the requirements get textualised or visualised;
  • the content of the requirements, i.e. what is being described (rather scientific examples e.g. at http://vs.informatik.uni-kl.de/activities/forest/overview/pp/index.html
  • the way you organise the requirements process, i.e. how the requirements get captured, communicated etc.

Apart from pure behavioral patterns which could also appear in the PM/QM patterns catalogue, the catalogue here shall focus on patterns that are originally be derived from requirement management and cannot exist without the link to it.
