Requirements engineering, also for testers
Erik van Veenendaal, March 2013
Testers use requirements as the basis of test cases, review them for testability, and often participate in general requirement reviews or inspections.
Unfortunately, many testers have little knowledge of or skill in requirements engineering. What level of quality and detail is realistic to expect in requirements documents? What does testability really mean? How can testers help improve requirements? Testers should be able to answer these questions and more, possessing skills in requirements engineering.
