Do we need to explicitly talk about all NFRs?

Just curios.. If we do, where should we speak about them?

E.g:

- Security: this NFR has been acheived by...
- Manageability: this has been achieved by...
- Performance: ...

In this format? And where?

Please advise.

Thanks,
Sam

If you don't talk about all NFRs on your assignment, you will have to talk on essay.

Thanks Eduardo. I see. Where would this be spoken about though? Assumptions?

In the essay type test, there would be direct questions like - "How did you address NFR1, NFR2 etc in your proposed design?" . So, you have to answer it there, even if you don't do that while submitting the assignment.

Some people put a separate section in their assignment in the index.html with NFRs. You can also do that. But it's a repetition, since it also partly overlaps with "Risks and Mitigations". I did create a separate link talking about the main NFRs.

I think it's more for you than the examiner to talk it at several places

Hi Sam. It depends. You can comment about some NFRs on your deploy diagram, others can be part of your assumptions, eg, what have you done to reach some NFR requirement (in my assignment some NFRs were requested), and others can be a riks/mitigation section. I think there is no exactly answer for that.

Best wishes.

I did. It is a little like an index for the reviewer. I didn'twant to lose points because the info was embedded too subtly

You don't have to, but I suggest you should do it. I slept better after taking the part 3, because I had much more to write to some related questions...but I had no more time... some of those points that I had no time to mention in part 3, were covered in my assignment.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
