Requirement analysis in software development

Today I am going to represent the importance of requirement analysis in software industry. We make an application to satisfy our client’s need. Client’s satisfaction is our main goal. That’s why, we must need to understand and figure out what client wants. And also we must make client understand these are the things that will make your requirement fulfill. If he satisfy with the requirement proposal, then we can make the requirement as the programmer’s goal to fulfill. This will definitely reduce both time and workload and also cost. Because, if we don’t collect requirements at the initial stage of a software development, then the scenario becomes like the following:
Programmers and designers working on some scattered information of the project. At the time of their working, client changes his mind and asks some new things. Then the programmers and designers worked on the same module and take the application at some stage where they can say it is ok. And then if client again wishes to change something , then the changes on a same module keeps going. This definitely kills lot of time and makes the work more tedious and costly.
That’s why requirement analysis is so important in software development. If we make a requirement analysis at the initial stage of software development, then we can show our client that this was what you asked from us and see this is what we made. Client can place change request after a requirement is final. So, requirement analysis makes software development procedural, easy and cost-effective.
