dido:public:ra:1.4_req:3_assessment:2_nonfunctional:howto How to Use the Non-Functional Requirements Boilerplate

Return to Non-Functional Requirements

To use either the Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets workbook to support a Trade Study, click on one of the links below. To fill out the workbook, go to each individual sheet in the workbook and evaluate the requirement using a rating of 1-5: 1 for poor and 5 for excellent. The sheet will then calculate the average, total score, and number of samples that were used to calculate both previous values for this sheet. In the comments section you can add additional information about that specific topic. The Master sheet includes links back to the DIDO Wiki to describe each of the non-functional requirements (e.g. Portability). Each of the sheets associated with a specific non-functional requirement (e.g, Portability) includes links back to the DIDO RA Wiki for more information about whichever sub-requirement (e.g., Fault Tolerance) is needed and being rated.

NOTE: It is not recommended to download the Google Sheet as a Microsoft Excel sheet. Use the Microsoft directions below.

Using Microsoft Excel

It is not recommended to use the Microsoft Excel method for the following reasons…

  • Limited ability to place data inside a cell
  • Only one link per cell
  • Row height and Column width limit is restrictive
  • Limited ability to format cells.
