Are Your Requirements Complete?

Abstract

Good requirements have several useful properties, such as being consistent, necessary, and unambiguous. Another essential characteristic that is almost always listed is that ‘requirements should be complete.’ But just what does completeness mean, and how should you ensure that your requirements are complete? In this column, we will begin to address these two questions by looking at (1) the importance of requirements completeness, (2) the completeness of requirements models, (3) the completeness of various types of individual requirements, and (4) the completeness of requirements metadata. In next issue’s column, we will continue by addressing (5) the completeness of requirements repositories, (6) the completeness of requirements documents derived from such repositories of requirements, (7) the completeness of sets of requirements documents, (8) the completeness of requirements baselines, and finally (9) determining how complete is complete enough when using an incremental and iterative development cycle.

Creating ISO images with Nero 5.5 Express

Mark Michaelis' Weblog - August, 2003: "Creating ISO images with Nero 5.5 Express

I recently set up an old computer for my son, Benjamin, as he keeps messing up my wifes desktop and then I have to figure out how to get it back to the way she wants it. Anyway, as part of doing this I didn't want my son putting CDs in and out of the computer as he tends to scratch them. Instead, I decided to create ISO images of them and have him use them directly from the computer using Daemon-Tools. The problem, was how to create ISO images? I had a copy of Nero Express 5.5 but it took me some time to figure out exactly how to get it to make ISO images. (If you happen to have the full version of Nero you can find instructions for creating ISO images here.)

Here are the steps for Nero Express 5.5:

1. Launch Nero Express 5.5 (yes there is a 6 version out there but I don't have it.)
2. Select the Copy Entire Disk option.
3. Click the More>> button.
4. Click the Configure…
