Detailing

Inherited Specification-Elements are not directly specified in a statement (that is, they are not local to a given specification), but they are inherited from related specifications, usually those at a higher Level (a supra-specification).

Specification


Examples

Example:
Usability:
Type: Product-Value-Requirement.
Kid Specifications: {Learning, Doing}. “Usability is defined here as consisting of these two Product-Values.”
Deadline: Time: End of Year.


Then in a different, non-local specification:
Learning: Scale: Time to <learn> System. Goal: 60 minutes.

Doing: Scale: Time to <correctly finish> defined [Average Tasks].
Goal: 5 minutes.
Goal [1st Release]: 10 minutes.
Type and Deadline are Specification-Elements of the Parent specification Usability. They are inherited by the Kid Specifications, Learning and Doing. The Goal [1st Release] does not inherit the Usability.Time deadline because it explicitly has another overriding specification.
