Is part of:

E-20 Requirement specification
E-136 System documentation
E-69 Architecture- and program description


A glossary defines all important technical terms of the application domain. When formulating the definitions, remember that the dictionary is designed only to prevent any possible misunderstandings, confusions and misinterpretations.

All terms are sorted alphabetically and include short descriptions (2 - 10 sentences) or refer to another term.

If different meanings exist for one term, mark each term with the necessary context, e.g. customer [sales] ..., customer [marketing].

If you use synonyms with different contexts note the relevant context to each term, e.g. customer [sales] see member.

The glossary is specific for the project and should contain all important functional terms. Abbreviations have to be described in the glossary, too.
