It obsoletes the well known standard for software requirements specifications: IEEE 830-1998 — IEEE Recommended Practice for Software Requirements Specifications.
You can reuse Document Templates for the following standard requirements specifications:
These Document Templates preserve structure of sections provided in the standard and define requirements attributes supporting the requirements process described in the standard.
The standard provides detailed information about the requirements engineering process for software and system products and we strongly recommend it as the primary source of information for using the Document Templates in your projects.
If you create a new document from one of the templates above (see Requirements Projects > Set up Projects > Create Documents) then the application displays detailed guidance from the standard in the Instructions pane:
Another useful source of information is the Guide to the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) by the Body of Knowledge and Curriculum to Advance Systems Engineering (BKCASE) governed by the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) and the IEEE Computer Society.
