Project Requirement and its types

For any project to accomplish project requirements need to be classified and analyzed. The most important part is collecting requirements for a project.

Requirements may include attributes of projects like its dimensions, its uses, color, specific property, and so on.

Requirements specify the final project deliverable and how it should look like and what it should do. Requirements must be measurable, testable, related to identified business needs or opportunities, and defined to a level of detail sufficient for system design.

Requirements can be divided into six basic categories:

  1. Functional,
  2. Non-functional,
  3. Technical,
  4. Business, 
  5. User

It consists of restrictions or constraints to be placed on the deliverable and how to build it. The purpose is to restrict the number of solutions that will meet a set of requirements. If there are no constraints then the solution can become very large and complex.


These are the part of the functional requirements where Technical. This shows how can the problem be solved? Is there a need for a technical tools or procedural ?. These specify how the system needs to be designed to solve and implemented to provide the required functionality and fulfill required operational characteristics.

Business Requirements

These are the large outcomes to implement in the business needs, not limited to the functions that a system performs.
