Software Requirements Specification (SRS) is the key documentation, defining the functional and non-functional system requirements. This papers stresses the importance of the SRS and examines the process, which enables the emergence of a quality SRS. Business information must be acquired, discussed, analysed and digested, which forms the inputs for the documentation of SRS. A SRS typically consists of a set of documents, including the SRS itself, which is a written description of business requirements and system features, and analysis models.
