Architecture Requirements Specification

Architecture Requirements Specification is one of the TOGAF deliverables you can create with the TOGAF tool.

The Architecture Requirements Specification provides a set of quantitative statements that outline what an implementation project must do in order to comply with the architecture. An Architecture Requirements Specification will typically form a major component of an implementation contract or contract for more detailed Architecture Definition.

As mentioned above, the Architecture Requirements Specification is a companion to the Architecture Definition Document, with a complementary objective:

  • The Architecture Definition Document provides a qualitative view of the solution and aims to communicate the intent of the architect.
  • The Architecture Requirements Specification provides a quantitative view of the solution, stating measurable criteria that must be met during the implementation of the architecture.

Step 1: Confirm Architecture Requirements Specification

Review the form of ‘Architecture Requirements Specification’ and make necessary updates

Review the Architecture Requirements and make any necessary updates. The Architecture Requirements should be finalized in this phase.
