Requirements management is the process of documenting, analyzing, tracing, prioritizing and agreeing on requirements and then controlling change and communicating to relevant stakeholders. It is a continuous process throughout a project. A requirement is a capability to which a project outcome (product or service) should conform.

In the existing world, tighter deadlines, and the inevitable fact that requirements do change (during the course of development too),  often result in dissatisfied stakeholders, users and demoralized users.

To bridge the gaps between the user’s expectations and features provided, an efficient and strong requirements’ management process is needed.

Requirements Management with Cucumber

Although Cucumber is a tool used for behavior driven development, it is extremely helpful for writing requirements. User can read and create requirements that in turn can be used as a basis for test automation.

Using Cucumber, requirements can be gathered in a more user friendly business readable, domain specific language that enables describing software’s behaviour without detailing how that behaviour is implemented, helping avoid the technicalities involved. Additionally, It eventually serves purposes of aiding automated testing and providing base for user documentation.
