User Requirements Specification - URS


The User Requirements Specification is a document produced by, or on behalf of your organisation, which documents the purposes for which a system is required - its functional requirements - usually in order of priority / gradation.

Whilst the URS will not usually probe the technical specification, it will nevertheless outline the expectations and, where essential may provide further detail e.g. the User Interface, say Microsoft Windows®, and the expected hardware platform etc.

The URS is an essential document which outlines precisely what the User (or customer) is expecting from this system. The term User Requirement Specification can also incorporate the functional requirements of the system or may be in a separate document labelled the Functional Requirements Specification - the FRS.
