Dasein’s Triad

Composition of the Triad of Hermeneutical Engineering of Requirements, consisting of “Identification of Situational Difference”, “Examination of Situational Difference” and “Specification of Requirement”.


Composition of the Situational Difference Identification, whose purpose is to identify and understand the “Context of Situational Difference” in relation to the “Business Community”.


Composition of the Examination of Situational Difference, which aims to understand the “Problems/Opportunities”, their “Circumstances” and identify a set of “Possibilities” and “Benefits” to be offered by the software to be developed.


Composition of the Requirement Specification, which aims to declare and approve the “Original Needs” (together with the “expectations”), produce and approve the “Acceptable Specification” and to specify and approve the “Software Requirements”.
