Requirement Types

In a Requirement definition, the requirement is categorized according to type or function, in the Type field of the Requirement properties dialog. This helps to maintain a single set of typed requirements. You can select the appropriate Type value from a drop-down list, which initially contains the system values:

Display
Functional
Performance
Printing
Report
Testing and
Validate

 

You can add to or replace any of these types with your own customized values.
