Visual requirements specification of
system that issues export certificates
The core in the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration's cooperation with industry businesses, is the work with issuing export certificates, which is now to be supported digitally. The vision for the project was ambitious and wishes for the system were many.
Therefore, Visuel IT used its innovative method of translating the many wishes, needs and requirements into a visual requirements specification, for use in subsequent contracts.
"In the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration (DVFA), we and the industry businesses had to prepare specifications for a new system that can handle digital applications and proceedings relating to export certificates. From previous IT projects, the DVFA has had really good experiences using visual requirements specifications because pictures tell so much more than words. We chose Visuel IT for the job because they had a strong focus on active involvement of the project group - that is, the future users of the system. We have been extremely happy with the choice. The collaboration has been an exciting, creative process where we throughout have been challenged on our wishes and ideas by Visuel IT who have contributed with solutions that were not on the drawing board from the start. We are also very pleased with the visual requirements specifications we have had prepared. It is a detailed and well thought through solution proposal which clearly describes to both potential users and developers, what the system should support."
