Publisher Comments:

Without formal, verifiable software requirements—and an effective system for managing them—the programs that developers think they’ve agreed to build often will not be the same products their customers are expecting. In SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS, Second Edition, requirements engineering authority Karl Wiegers amplifies the best practices presented in his original award-winning text?now a mainstay for anyone participating in the software development process.

In this book, you’ll discover effective techniques for managing the requirements engineering process all the way through the development cycle—including dozens of techniques to facilitate that all-important communication between users, developers, and management. This updated edition features new case examples, anecdotes culled from the author’s extensive consulting career, and specific Next Steps for putting the book’s process-improvement principles into practice. You’ll also find several new chapters, sample documents, and an incisive troubleshooting guide.

Discover how to:

Set achievable expectations for functionality and quality NEW: Incorporate business rules into application development Employ use cases to discover user requirements Arrest creeping requirements and manage change requests NEW: Deal with requirements on maintenance, outsourced, and package solution projects Curb the impulse to “gold-plate” your programs NEW: Grow effective requirements analysts Cut revisions—and costs—dramatically Produce better software!

No matter what kind of software you build, or what your role in the development process, SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS, Second Edition, delivers expert guidance and field-tested techniques for engineering software

Synopsis:

Up-to-date, practical guide to gathering and managing requirements throughout the product development cycleHave you ever delivered software that satisfied all the project specifications and seemingly none of the customer's expectations? As a customer, do you find yourself guessing exactly what kind of information developers need from you? Without formal, verifiable requirements and a system for managing them the result is usually a gap between what developers think they're supposed to build and what customers think they're going to get. In SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS, Second Edition, you'll discover practical, proven techniques for managing the requirements engineering process all the way through the development cycle. The author, a leading speaker and consultant in the field of requirements engineering, has expanded his award-winning book with more real-world case examples, up-to-date coverage of use cases and commercially available tools, additional practice exercises, and a new troubleshooting guide. He's also refined his own set of tools and templates for facilitating that all-important communication among users, developers, and management. No matter what kind of software you build or what your role in the development process, SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS, Second Edition, delivers the expert tools and guidance you need to engineer software success!
