A few words about the SRS document

A Nodes Portal Toolkit (NPT) Software Requirements Specification (SRS) document is being prepared as the next logical step after the NPT Scoping and Requirements (S&R) document, which was prepared during the NPT Advisory Group workshop, held in Madrid in March 2011 and publicly released in June 2011. The purpose of the SRS is to describe the software requirements for the NPT, reaching a level of detail which makes it fit to be circulated amongst the NPT stakeholder, and in particular amongst the potential developers, as well as to prepare a high-level document focusing on the architectural and design aspect of the NPT. The SRS focuses on functional characteristics of the NPT. Data structures and user interfaces will require further specification and development using an iterative, prototype-oriented software development methodology. The purpose of the current version of the SRS document is to clarify, validate and verify the requirements, focusing on the functional aspects. The SRS captures and describes the desired behavior of the end product. The SRS document is intended to be a planning instrument for the future development of the NPT and its potential derivatives.
