I love reading Thomas Sowell’s articles on economics and its social and political ramifications. His “Basic Economics” book broke down the basics of supply and demand as well as other economic principles in a way even I could understand! Today, however, his article was a rant on how hard today’s electronic gadgets are to use.
I recently posted about the need for accuracy and precision in requirements. In that post, I mentioned that natural language requirements are probably the least precise format for expressing requirements. Many BA’s, myself included, write specs composed of natural language requirements and a few flow diagrams for clarification and context. So, given that natural language is not inherently precise, how do we at least make them as precise as possible?
