Hi Kumar,

Let us know what specific questions you have...  If your project is not sensitive you can post the details here.   I would ask your manager if he/she has any expectations on the format and/or template of the SRS (what information they expect).  You also need to ask them what are your possible sources of information for the project: stakeholders, existing requirements, project charter and vision, end-users, etc.

Best of luck,

- Adrian

As Adrian mentioned, a little more information will help us help you. I saw your post on the other thread as well. We will use this thread to reply to your questions so that I can keep the thread with Frank's process clean.

If this is your first job with the team I would recommend you focus on getting the job done before you start trying to improve things.  The reasons for this is that you have to build up credibility before people want to hear your opinion.

So focus on getting the developers to understand the client's requirements and for the right tool to be built.  Use cases can help, but more important is speaking with everybody and getting the communication flowing. 

Maybe if you want to add some value by way of expertise look up some best practice UI tips and hand them across to the development team.  Do it in the context of "Hey guys, look at this article I found" otherwise you'll be in danger of telling them how to do their job.  (Did I mention taht you need to build up crdibility before people will let you give them advice?)
