Re: Requirements elicitation for user interface vs application 


The BABOK is based on what is popular - not upon what makes sense.   Take Business Requirements vs Functional Requirements.   What the BABOK says is that if a requirement is high level and non-implementation specific, it is essentially different than a requirement that is not as high level and is implementation specific (i.e,  implemented within a specific system).  (Do not be confused by goals, objectives, and needs vs functions and processes;   a high level goal, need, or objective can easily be restated to be a high level essential function/process.  It is just a small matter of changing some wording around.)

Such thinking, especially for larger scale efforts, is very problematic as it retards the analysts ability to integrate all essential functional requirements into a comprehensive, integrated whole.   Data flow diagrams are proof that all essential goals, objectives, needs, functions, and process - high level, detail level, non-implementation specific and implementation specific - can all be tied together into a single comprehensive, integrated whole.

Re: Requirements elicitation for user interface vs application 

Hi Priyanka,

My understanding is that you are asking two questions here:

1. " are the requirements for the user interface different from the requirements for the whole application. User interface is a part of the application design, right ?"


2. " the use case design different for User interface than the one designed for a partular functionality?"

My answers to above:

1. I presume by "requirements" you mean "Functional Requirements". Yes, UI FR are part of the application design.

2. Yes, Use Case can not be different for UI and for the Application, the use case represents a particular function (or part of it) that the application must provide in order to meet the particular Business Requirement(s).

Hope this helps.
