Requirements Gold Plating


Namespace: Wiki

Embellishment of requirements for features that are not really needed, or features that duplicate what's already available. Requirements Gold Plating is one of the reasons software projects take longer than they typically should. See Developer Gold Plating.
Some examples of requirements gold plating:
  • Unnecessary Functional Requirements, features for which there is no legitimate Use Case, or for which the Use Case is marginal.
  • Unnecessary Non Functional Requirements.
    Requirements Gold Plating is discussed in Steve McConnell 's book Rapid Development.
