Abstract

This curriculum module is concerned with the definition of software requirements—the software engineering process of determining what is to be produced—and the products generated in that definition. The process involves all of the following: (1) requirements identification (2) requirements analysis (3) requirements representation (4) requirements communication (5) development of acceptance criteria and procedures. The outcome of requirements definition is a precursor of software design. 

This module supersedes SEI-CM-1.
