QUALITY REQUIREMENTS FOR INFORMATION SYSTEMS – PART 3 – A VOCABULARY NECESSARY FOR QUALITY REQUIREMENTS
About the Presentation
Audience:Business analysts and managers, project teams
Presented by:Dan Tasker, Senior Business Analyst, Author, Mentor
For Stakeholder (High-level) and Functional (Detailed) Requirements to be of consistent quality they need to utilise a common vocabulary. Concept and Data Models and their associated glossaries and data dictionaries are discussed as a way to visually represent and document terms, their meaning, and characteristics. A classification scheme is introduced for entities, attributes and relationships that supports capturing business details related to the data.
Examples are presented from the Trips-R-You Web-based Flight Reservation System Case Study developed by the author that includes end-to-end examples of requirements.
