FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS (Preferred term)
The features an organization desires in a software program.
May be calculations, technical details, data manipulation and processing and other specific functionality that define what a system is supposed to accomplish.
Functional requirements are supported by non-functional requirements which impose constraints on the design or implementation (such as performance requirements, security, or reliability).
How a system implements functional requirements is detailed in the system design.
