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.
