What are Missing Requirements?
John Spacey, updated on August 14, 2017
Missing requirements, or requirements shortfall, is a perceived defect that is the result of lacking functional, behavior or non-functional requirements. The term defect is typically defined as a non-conformance to requirements. Therefore, a missing requirement is typically rejected as a defect according to quality assurance best practices. As such, missing requirements are handled as change requests.It is common for missing requirements to be non-functional or behavioral. This is due to a tendency for business units to focus on business rules over other concerns such as design, user interactions, security and operational characteristics.
