Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

How can we classify a "requirement specification" as a good one? Is there any metrics for this also similarto the software metrics, with which we can analyse the quality of a requirement? Note: By "requirement specification" I mean the requirements we get from the client to suggest a technical proposal

What does the above post mean? Is it that, there is no way we can classify a requirement as a good one? Is it that there is no methodology similar to software metrics to quantitatively judge the quality of a requirement? Please clear me of these two things as i was not able to understand the matter from your last post
