This chapter addresses the discipline of writing requirement statements. Requirements are technical data items, and should be written as such, using concise, uniform language that minimises ambiguity. Where appropriate, the statements should be design agnostic and quantified. How that is achieved is discussed, including the concept of statement-level requirement templates.
