Understanding Technical Requirements For Projects


In my previous articles , I have talked about all that you need to know about business and functional requirements for projects. In this article, I want to look at all that you need to know about technical requirements for projects. Follow me as we are going to look at that together in this article.



Technical Requirements are the technical needs that are crucial for a project. The technical requirements document outlines how the solution will accomplish the goals established by the business and functional requirements .

Technical Requirements for projects

A good technical requirements document contain five key elements:.


#1  Software required

The first thing is the software required o support the stated goals contained in the functional requirements . You need to determine what software you needed to achieve the stated goals. You need to know whether the software can be provided within or outside the organisation.


#2 Data model

You also need to consider the data model required to support the software development. There is a need for you to determine the technology needed to manage data that will be used for the project. This will allow you to put the neccesary infrastructure in place in order to manage the customer and project data.


#3 Platform requirements

You need to also consider the systems and platform requirements needed to support the software and data components. You have to identify all components that are needed to achieve project goals. You have to make sure that all resources are available in order to achieve project goals.


#4 Network requirements

It also talks about network requirements needed to support the software and data components. You have to designed and determine how.many employee need access to data and where those data are needed. This will allow you to determine how the network architecture will look like.


Typical example…

As the project manager for a corporate intranet project , the business and functional requirements have been clearly established and the task of drafting the technical requirements a now before you.


It has been decided that the intranet content will created and controlled by each of the various departments in order to keep the IT support lead to a minimum. One of he major points in the functional requirements document is that a particular web development tool,with HTML , coding capabilities , is used within each department .But,the problem is that a vast majority of the external web servers within the environment are based on Have or Oracle.


Based on this analysis ,a document was created listing the technical requirements for this project


The requirements include:


  • The database used should be Oracle 2i with backward compatibility.
  • The systems should be compatible with browser like IE6 and Mozilla.
  • The version of web development tool (HTML) should be 1.2 or above.
