Applying IEEE Standard 830-1998 for Software Requirements Specifications 

Course length - 1 day

Lack of understanding what the customer desires in a project and not being able to document those desires is a major cause of project failure. We know this, but many people still struggle with writing good software requirements. 

Do you find yourself challenged by user requirements? Perhaps you understand the important of good user requirements for software development and testing, but other people in your organization need to be exposed to best practices for user requirements. If so, this is the course for you!

This is a basic course in understanding the process of gathering, defining, testing and managing user requirements as described in IEEE Standard 830-1998 - Guidelines for Software Requirements Specifications. You will learn what comprises a quality, testable requirement.

This course is ideal for people who are just learning about the importance of user requirements, or for those who need a defined process and format for requirements management.

This is a practical interactive workshop which uses team exercises to reinforce the process taught in the class. Your instructor will be a certified instructor in the software engineering field. 

You will learn the terminology, process, and challenges of requirements management in the real world. As a result of attending this seminar, you should have a good working knowledge of user requirements and what it takes to gather, design, test and manage a complete set of user requirements for a project. From this workshop, you will leave with a practical understanding of IEEE Standard 830-1998 and how to tailor and apply it to your projects.
