Requirements Analysts Must Also Be Inventors, by James Robertson, Atlantic Systems Guild

System Designers, Not Analysts, Should Design, by Connie Heitmeyer, Naval Research Laboratory

Robertson argues, "When it comes to the software that we build for clients, we must invent some of it." Heitmeyer argues that "The requirements analyst?s task is largely one of discovery: By studying existing documentation, eliciting requirements from customers and domain experts, and analyzing the documented requirements for flaws, the analyst discovers the new system?s requirements."
