  All of us realize the value of re-use. Re-use saves cost and improves quality.

 

But when it comes to reusing requirements, I hardly hear any organization making a planned effort to re-use requirements.

 

In this regard, I felt, let us start with set of requirements which are highly likely to be re-used. If we can identify them and catalog them, we can definitely find projects which would have implemented them.

 

So in future, when we encounter such requirements, we simply refer to our catalog.

 

I started and enumerated 25 common requirements that I came across as a BA. I would urge my fellow BAs to update the list. Once we hit 100, we do have a great list to refer.

 

Here is my 25 to the list.

  1. Authentication
  2. Search
  3. Date validation
  4. Currency conversion
  5. Printing
  6. Import - Excel, Word, PDF, MPP
  7. Export - Excel, Word, PDF, MPP
  8. Data encryption
  9. Data validations - Text, Number, Email
  10. SMS integration
  11. Email integration
  12. Image compression
  13. Storing of artifacts
  14. Privilege allocation
  15. Holidays
  16. List of countries
  17. List of states in various countries
  18. Phone codes for various countries
  19. Multi-language support
  20. Multi-currency support
  21. Date comparison
  22. Social integrations - Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+
  23. Maps
  24. Units of measure conversions
  25. Currency conversions
