Adding new requirements in SRS 


I am a newbie in BA field and recently joined an IT company as BA.  Writing SRSs are part of my job role sometimes there will be new requirements to be added into the exisitng SRSs.  Now Iam making another new document with new requirements and adding reference of the old SRS document.  I would need an advise on how to add new requirements into old SRS documents or the way iam doing will do.  Please suggest.

Re: Adding new requirements in SRS 


There's probably 10 different ways you could think of to manage new or updated requirements to a system requirements specification document. However, placing all of your new requirements in a separate document hasn't worked well from my experience.

It's typically difficult for a reader of the new and separate document to get a full understanding of the new requirements without the full context of the current spec and surrounding information. Jumping back and forth between documents to get this context is difficult.

If you are using MS Word for your documentation, consider using track changes and simply updating your documentation. Of course, it's always a good idea to have a revision history table where a summation of thew new changes along with who made them and when can be tracked even after the newly tracked changes have been accepted.
