Abstract

Requirements figure prominently in information system development. Both development phase of the system and phase of its verification depends on how qualitative requirements are. That is why it's required to describe requirements as accurately and correctly as it possible. One of the properties that define quality of requirements collecting is completeness. The paper shows that if one obtains sources and symptoms of the requirements incompleteness (completeness absence), classifies, generalizes and clarifies them then one can check requirements for these symptoms while collecting requirements or after that. This will sufficiently decrease the incompleteness of the requirements and thus improve their quality. The paper
contains some symptoms of incompleteness have already been revealed and explains the reason of their appearance. These symptoms have been revealed by analyzing the documentation of some important industrial projects.
