Requirements Mgt
« on: May 13, 2003, 09:55:15 am »
Hi,
I'm having a bit of trouble getting started using the requirements modeling functions. When I double click on the built-in diagrams under custom->requirements, some of them open the Analysis toolbox and others open the Custom toolbox. Is this the correct behavior? Intuitively, I would think that all of them would open the Custom toolbox.

thanks,

Dave,
The tool bar varies on the diagram type. I had some problems reconciling the use of the 'Custom' area as well. In the end I just restructured the whole thing to reflect my current work method of Requirements-Uses Cases-Interaction Diagrams and then Class/Database  Diagrams.
I wasn't used to doing analysis diagrams so I have a folder just for them under Use Case view.

My current folder structure is now:

Application Specification
   Formal Requirements
   Non Functional Requirements
Use Case View
  Analysis Model
  Top level Use Case
Dynamic
Logical etc.

and it's really easy to take the default and create a structure to represent your development process

Hi,

My tuppence- Regarding the use of requirements diagrams, I like to use them to capture text requirements, whether from a written specification or domain expert interviews.  I arrange them hierarchically as they would be represented in a numbered specification (outline form). These requirements can then be linked to the associated Use Cases by means of the relationship matrix feature [Project>Relationship Matrix].
