Collaborate on Requirements

Challenge

You would like to collect, to discuss, to improve and to vote upon system requirements in a distributed team. Requestors create entries and comment on others, while Requirement Managers consolidate and prioritize them based on requestor's comments. Finally, you want to share approved requirement specifications with subsequent process steps - for example system design, task management up to acceptance testing.

Solution

The "Interactive Spec" is a simple Web-Application. For persistent storage and for sharing the data with other applications, the standard ReqIF Server is used.

Roles

  • Requestor
  • Requirement-Manager

Arguments
