Transform Business to Functional Requirements 

Folks,

         Please provide inputs on the following

1. What are the best ways to Transform Business Requirements to Functional Requirements?

I have completed working on BRD with the Business and IT users and stakeholders and have started working on developing the Functional requirements doc. I'm developing the Use cases to represent the system functionality and i believe the use cases will be a major component of the FRD. Please advise if this is the best way to convert the Business Req's into Functional req's or if there are any other methods to capture functional requirements. I work on a state project and they dont follow a standard methodoloy and do not have standard templates that the teams can use. This makes the process a little complex.

Re: Transform Business to Functional Requirements 

Raj, here is what you need to do to transform Business requirements into functional requirements.  Also Make use case for each function of system

a)   Create project-initiation diagrams flow that includes business use case activity diagram workflow, diagrams flow charts, etc.

b)   Determine project scope and derive context diagrams and project use cases from the business diagrams

c)   Detail the use cases by using activity diagrams or other techniques

d)   Create high level analysis dataflow diagrams, domain class diagrams,  and entity-relationship diagrams from the use cases or other high level diagrams

e)   Recognize and understand the various design models including the other relevant types of UML diagrams detailed design entity-relationship diagrams and decomposed dataflow diagrams

f)    Determine when to use which modeling technique following them through a project life cycle and understand which diagrams are derived from others

g)   Understand the basic concepts of normalization and decomposition so can converse intelligently on the topic and review diagrams that have been normalized or decomposed.

I hope this helps.........

Manoj

Re: Transform Business to Functional Requirements 

Manoj, Thanks for the quick response. I like your recommendation.How ever, couple of things

1. I have already come up with a high level process flow diagram which explains the complete functionality of the system.

2. So, will the next step be to dis-integrate the high level Process flow into smaller sub categories for each module with in the system?

3. Also, i have come up with Use cases that describe the system and User interaction.This should help too, right?

Craig, thanks for the input. Never heard of the Yahoo forums for software development. There's a lot of information in there.

Nowadays, companies like Audi and HSBC, use IT systems in everything they do. Does that make them to be IT companies rather than banks? Most would probably agree that HSBC is a bank, just as Audi is a car manufacturer. But what about digital banks such as Chime or companies offering digital products? In digital companies, most of the employees work...
