After approving the project plan developed in the initiation phase, we specify very clearly the requirements that are linked with our project. We identify the expectations that all of the involved parties have with regard to the project result. It is important to identify the requirements very early in the process.
• Functional requirements
• Operational requirements
• Design limitations
During the definition phase it is very important that all partners that are involved in the project are able to collaborate. Finally, a list of definitive requirements is created and presented for the approval of the projects decision-makers. After approving the requirements list the next phase begins.
