Goals of the Process

Recognizing that generating system requirements is a crucial step in developing an ICM system (as the requirements set the direction for how the system will be designed, built, tested, and implemented), a number of goals were identified for what the process should achieve:

  1. Educate stakeholders on what functions are needed for successful ICM
  2. Reduce risk by refining the scope of the system
  3. Obtain agreement among stakeholders on the requirements for the system
  4. Ensure that all requirements needed for ICM are listed and that none are overlooked
  5. Provide guidance to funders of the system
  6. Provide direction to implementers of the system
  7. Ensure the system can be tested
  8. Provide a template for future ICM efforts
