Re: Requirements Gathering Steps 

 Its a start.  All knowledge is good.  Ask around the team for advice also.


I think the best writing on use cases is by alistair cockburn (who has lots of free stuff at his website)

Re: Requirements Gathering Steps 

According to me, necessities vary from scheme to scheme. But some fundamental requirements are premeditated business plan, situate for opening production, adequate capital for deal, fine promotional method etc.

Re: Requirements Gathering Steps 

 There are many schools of thought on how best to gather requirements.

On one hand, there are those that don't document anything and get straight into code, there are others that cover absolutely everything in detail at the start. Both have their problems. The smaller the project, the less risk there is in not capturing requirements. In larger projects, the risk is increases dramatically. 

However, develompent is not an exact science and often requirements, even if written well can change due to unknown or unforeseen circumstances which makes you wonder why you bother in the first place! This is where common sense has to prevail. The amount of detail put into the requirements will depend on the scale and nature of the project.

Essentials in Requirement Gathering:

a) Focus and Clarity

b) A Format for Specifying Requirements

c) The Author of the Requirements Document

d) The Language of Requirements

e) Accuracy is Critical

f) Minimize the Risk of Errant Interpretation
