    Abstract

    Developing requirements in the early phase of product development is a process that poses considerable challenges. The most significant challenge is how to effectively transfer knowledge-related requirements. This paper highlights the challenges related to knowledge transfer practices, while developing requirements through a review of literature and an analysis of high-tech company interviews. The most significant challenges and their effects on practices are also discussed. We found that the roots of any difficulty in requirements transfer were embedded in the failure to transfer knowledge-related requirements and facilitate communication between stakeholders. This difficulty affects stakeholders’ common understanding. Therefore, interpretations of the requirements vary and do not match the stakeholders’ intentions. Lastly, the final requirements and specifications sent are unclear and ambiguous so the requirements need to be changed and modified.
