Requirements Management

Requirements Management
The intent of Requirements Management is to manage the requirements of a program’s products and product components and to identify inconsistencies between those requirements and the program’s plans and work products. Requirements Management is a process to ensure all requirements, including technical, non-technical, and organizational requirements, are well managed. Each Program must ensure that there is an agreed-upon set of requirements and that the set is managed to support the planning and execution of the program. The requirements provider and the program team must ensure that the requirements are clearly understood before incorporating them into the program plans.

Changes to requirements must also be managed as they are provided and any inconsistencies with plans and work products must be resolved. This includes documenting changes and their rationale and maintaining traceability between high-level requirements and low-level requirements as well as between requirements and related products (e.g. Design Document, Test Plans, Test Cases, Interface Requirement Agreements, etc.).
