Requirement Diagram Example: HSUV Top Level Requirements

The best way to understand Requirement Diagram is to look at some examples of Requirement Diagram and start drawing your own. You can now modify the Requirement Diagram example below using Visual Paradigm's online Requirement Diagram tool.

SysML: How to Modeling User Requirements with Requirement Diagram?

UML is used in the field of software engineering, SysML has been tailored to define a modelling language for systems by providing a vocabulary that's more suitable for Systems Engineering.

SysML reuses a subset of UML2 (UML4SysML), and defines its own extensions. Therefore SysML includes 9 diagrams instead of the 14 diagrams from UML2, making it a smaller language that is easier to learn and apply. SysML can be easily understood by the software community, due to its relation with UML2, whilst it is accessible to other communities.

SysML defines the following diagrams:

Structure diagrams

  • Block Definition Diagram (BDD), replacing the UML2 class diagram
  • Internal Block Diagram (IBD), replacing the UML2 composite structure diagram
  • Parametric Diagram, a SysML extension to analyse critical system parameters
  • Package Diagram remains unchanged

Dynamic diagrams

  • Activity Diagram has been slightly modified in SysML
  • Sequence Diagram (unchanged)
  • State Machine Diagram (unchanged)
  • Use Case Diagrams (unchanged)

The requirements diagrams is a SysML extension

Elaborate From Requirement to Use Case and Scenarios

A user story is typically a narrative that describes how a user would experience the functionality (or requirement) of the system. As the name suggests it is a "short story" that describes flow of events (or a scenario) they carry out, what information they see and how they interact with the system. Thus, a requirement can be used to drive all the way from user feature / user goal, to details design and development and subsequently to testing of the working software.
