A crucial element of software requirements modeling
Each project requires a unique mix of models and tools. Seilevel has several different basic templates to get business analysts started in the requirements elicitation and documentation process. These are not all the tools you’ll need for your requirements project (a good place for a more comprehensive list of model templates is Visual Models for Software Requirements), but they will help your through some of the initial stages. Here, we focus on the Business Objectives Model (BOM).
A BOM is a critical component of requirements modeling because it helps tie a project’s features and overall value to specific company (business) objectives. The elements of a Business Objective Model are business problem/objective pairs that culminate in product concept to solve the business problem. Success metrics are also included, which state the goals the project will be measured against.
One of our Seilevel consultants describes the use and need of a BOM in an eloquently simple example on our blog here. It’s a great read!
