Requirement Tractability Matrix Template (July 2013)
The purpose of the Requirements Management Plan is to describe all the processes, roles and responsibilities associated with the initiation, planning, development, base lining, control, and validation of requirements.
Requirements define the scope of a project and the criteria for its success. Requirements describe what the system must do. Whether or not the system fulfills those requirements determines the success or failure of a project. Managing requirements effectively increases the probability of a project’s success. Therefore, defining clear, correct and complete requirements and managing them during the project, is critical for a system development project and for maintaining the integrity and performance of a system over time.
The Requirements Management Plan identifies the process and procedures used to plan, develop, monitor and control requirements in all stages of a project’s lifecycle. This document is the foundation for all project requirement management policies and procedures.
