Eduin, it is extremely important to define clear scope, then manage the scope throughout. How one captures that information is a matter of personal or organizational processes - there are plenty of options available through client side, or web-based applications. A technique(s) will elicit and determine scope, a tool will capture them.

PMBOK tools and Techniques for Define scope have the following :-

1) Facilitated workshops are more effective than any automated tool or software. If anything the automated tool or software should be a repository of any decisions that have already come out of Facilitated workshops
Workshops are about people, bringing stakeholders together and discussing what they would like to see in the product. This is very important to engage stakeholders and make sure their requirements are considered and you have an opportunity to understand how critical this product or service is going to be for them.

2) Expert Judgement is all about touching base with someone in your company who has been a Subject Matter expert or Project Manager for a similar kind of product or service that you are implementing.

3) Product Analysis is all about analyzing the capabilities of the products that you can use in your project and to see how it fulfills your requirements

4) Alternatives Generation :- What are the different ways that you can fulfill the scope . Can you purchase something off the shelf, build something, employ someone to consult?
