Functional Requirements Template: Blue Theme

You can use the requirements to generate use cases. Each use case describes one or more functional requirement and capture the scope, business objectives, and functional and non-functional requirements of the current/proposed system.  A typical functional requirement has a unique name, number, summary, and a rationale.
