Applying the Easy Approach to Requirements Syntax (EARS) template can result in a simple, clear requirement. However, to be able to write a simple statement, you must first understand what you want the system to do, which might be difficult. The simplicity of the EARS templates prevents engineers from hiding behind ambiguous statements of what the system must do.
