System Requirements Specification


Format: Specifications/Procedures / Checklist

The System Requirements Specification (SRS) document describes all data, functional and behavioral requirements of the software under production or development.

The Appendices may include business rules, glossary, traceability matrices and other necessary supplementary information that are specific to the system.
