Requirements analysis is considered to be the key phase in Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Requirements phase would deal with thoroughly analyzing each and individual feature in the scope document or Features list. All the understandings or findings would be exhaustively documented. This document is called as Software Requirements Specification (SRS). We have some standard templates available for SRS. The SRS would be the main output of the Requirements phase. Apart from these there are some other artifacts involved in the Requirements phase.

We will discuss each of these Requirements related artifacts in detail. Our main concern will be on the content of the documents rather than the template. Different organizations follow different templates.

I understand your frustration Mr Brown, but instead of blasting would have appreciated if you correct wherever he has messed up and edit it

I am very irritated to see this kind of foolish article in this kind of sites.

Editors would have been smart and practical enough to understand and also edit the articles dealing with the SDLC or any phase of the Project. is creating all the mess with his vague or may be quite limited experience in the SDLC related matters.

I Just looked his article dealing with Artifacts in Design Phase, Which is completely vague and worst within a single word.

What does the mean of BPA and why is that mentioned as the standard artifact of requirement phase?

however it is understood that SDLC can be customized by different organizations to deliver additional artifacts according to their style of work.

But this fellow tried to take the same as the standard artifact and sending his waves of BIASED knowledge across the community.

I am sure any moderate or experienced Dev Folk after going through this article they will check for BPA across the internet, Don't worry it is a customized artifact but shouldn't be discussed as the standard artifact in this kind of articles.

I am surprised how blunt editor could edit and confirmed article for publishing as the requirements phase article never talk about RTM: Requirements Traceability Matrix and lot more mandatory artifacts.

It gives me the doubt that editor may be very good literate but not a practical hands on guy.

I am sure about what I've said.

If author has any point to talk to me give me the reverse message here.

If any one of you guys knows the mail id of the editor, I would URGE you guys to send this content as the mail to the editor

Mr. Peter Brown.
