User Requirement Specification (URS)

Definition of the term („What is an user requirement specification?“)

URS or User Re­qui­re­ment Spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on con­tains a com­pre­hen­si­ve de­scrip­ti­on of the cus­to­mer re­qui­re­ments with re­fe­rence to the pro­ducts and ser­vices of a con­trac­tor. This also in­clu­des the eco­no­mic, tech­ni­cal and or­ga­niz­a­tio­nal ex­pec­ta­ti­ons for a de­vice, ap­p­li­an­ce or a product/service. In the soft­ware sec­tor, for ex­amp­le, it is the re­sult of a re­qui­re­ment ana­ly­sis and this part of the re­qui­re­ment ma­nage­ment. Ul­ti­mate­ly, the URS also de­fi­nes ob­jec­ti­ves and purposes.

Wi­t­hin ten­ders, the con­trac­ting en­ti­ty may send the URS to several po­ten­ti­al con­trac­tors and then com­pa­re them with the func­tio­n­al spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons pro­vi­ded in­di­ca­ting the dif­fe­rent so­lu­ti­ons adop­ted by the contractors.
