Title: What are the Non Functional Requirements
Post by: BhaskerJ on May 19, 2016, 06:55:07 pm
Non Functional Requirements capture that do not directly relate to the behavior or functionality of the solution, but rather describe environmental conditions under which the solution must remain effective or qualities that the system have. They are also know as quality or supplementary requirements. These can include requirements related to capacity, speed, security, availability and the information architecture and presentation of the user interface.

Nonfunctional Requirements: The statements or conditions which support the usage of the application or the software and which help in aligning the functional requirements are considered under the non-functional requirements. The non-functional requirements are defined to explain the different abilities  of the software developed. The non-functional requirements are also termed as non-behavioral requirements or quality attributes defined in order to support the quality analysts to approve the software against the different constraints which must be met. They define the overall attributes of the end product.

The different abilities or the checklist supporting the non-functional requirements are mentioned as below:

Availability: It defines the percentage availability of the system which is expected at the time of the system operations. The hardware capacity of the system is designed referring to this availability percentage of the software or application. The details are approved by the business owners and documented by the business analysts during the business requirement documentation.
Usability and Reusability: This defines the convenience by which the system can be used by the intended users. This ability of the system explains the capacity of the software to be learned, installed and used by the business users. How easily the users can be trained on the system defines the usability of the software. Some softwares are designed to be used for the development other systems which have common components. This capability is known as reusability of the software. A software is considered as well designed and developed if it can be used for other softwares with some common features.
Reliability: A software is authentic if the user can rely on the features of the software and its usage for longer duration. This feature of the software helps the organizations in choosing the product for their sensitive data. The demand of the product is directly proportional to the reliability of the software. The product or software is reliable if it’s also stable. The business owners prefer the stable product in order to get the higher availability of the same for the users.
Flexibility: There should be always a scope of the extension of the functionality within the developed product. This feature is known as flexibility. The software is designed in such a way that it should provide a room for expansion even after the deployment of the end product. The flexibility of the product depends on the design and techniques used for the development of the product and thus a business analyst has to take care of certain steps while finalizing the software design and development techniques.
Supportability: This feature of the software or the product is massively used during the maintenance phase. The ability to deploy new releases, alter the code, customization as per the users’ locations are covered under this feature. The customization of the product should not hamper the international usage and it should target the local users only.
Performance: How well the software performs at different timings for different number of users is defined under this capacity of the software. There is a common agreement on the performance of the software which is signed off at the time of BRD sign-off and it helps in designing the software and hardware structure of the product accordingly.

Non Fictional Requirement refer to needs that must be fulfilled related to things like user interface, access security, availability, system failure, integration and migration. They do not deal with actual functionality of the system but represent key project success factors.

Non Functional Requirement means any requirement which specifies how the system performs a certain function.
In other words, a non-functional requirement will describe how a system should behave and what limits there are on its functionality.

Non-functional requirements generally specify the system’s quality attributes or characteristics, for example:
Typical non-functional requirements include:

·         Performance – for example: response time, throughput, utilization, static volumetric

·         Scalability

·         Capacity

·         Availability

·         Reliability

·         Recoverability

·         Maintainability

·         Serviceability

·         Security

·         Regulatory

·         Manageability

·         Environmental

·         Data Integrity

·         Usability

·         Interoperability

These can include requirement related to capacity, security, speed, availability and the information architecture and presentation of the user interface. Non-functional requirements may also describe aspects of the system that don't relate to it's execution, but rather to it's evolution over time (e.g. maintainability, extensibility, documentation, etc).

The basic difference between Functional and Non-functional requirements are:

*) For example: A FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENT WOULD BE - A system must send an email whenever a certain condition is met, i.e
                                                                                                        when an order is placed online, a customer sign up etc.
                         

                          NON-FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENT WOULD BE - Email should be sent with a latency of no greater than 1from
                                                                                                              such an activity.

The non-functional requirements elaborates a performance characteristics of the system such as:
*) capacity
*)speed
*)Security
*)stability
*)scalability

n systems engineering and requirements engineering, a non-functional requirement (NFR) is a requirement that specifies criteria that can be used to judge the operation of a system, rather than specific behaviors. They are contrasted with functional requirements that define specific behavior or functions.

 Non-functional requirements describe how the system works, while functional requirements describe what the system should do.
This does not mean the latter are more important, but most requirement gathering techniques focus on functional requirements, so large gaps in non-functional requirements are common.
So what exactly are we looking for here? Well, here are four examples of Non-Functional requirement groups; usability, reliability, performance, and supportability.

Basically, non-functional requirements relate to qualities of the system that cut across user facing features, such as security, reliability, and performance. Non-functional is probably a bad name because it sounds like these requirements are intangible, simply properties of a static system. However, these requirements do affect the function of the system and it is possible to design tests that these qualities are present.

The difference from functional requirements is that these qualities must be present throughout the system rather than delivered in one-shot like a user facing feature. Alternative terms for non-functional requirements are "constraints", "quality attributes", "quality goals" and "quality of service requirements" but let’s stick to calling them "non-functional requirement" (NFR) for now. So they have to be considered in every development cycle and factored into our test strategy.

NFR can be grouped into:

Execution qualities, such as security and usability, which are observable at run time.
Evolution qualities, such as testability, maintainability, extensibility and scalability, which are embodied in the static structure of the software system.

Non-functional requirements are often called "quality attributes" of a system. Other terms for non-functional requirements are "qualities", "quality goals", "quality of service requirements", "constraints" and "non-behavioral requirements".Informally these are sometimes called the "ilities", from attributes like stability and portability. Qualities—that is non-functional requirements—can be divided into two main categories:

    Execution qualities, such as security and usability, which are observable at run time.
    Evolution qualities, such as testability, maintainability, extensibility and scalability, which are embodied in the static structure of the software system

Hi,
Any project’s requirements need to be well thought out, balanced and clearly understood by all involved, but perhaps of most importance is that they are not dropped or compromised halfway through the project.

what exactly is the difference between ‘functional’ and ‘non functional’ requirements? It’s not that complex, and once you understand the difference, the definition will be clear.
Basically, Non-functional requirements describe how the system works, while functional requirements describe what the system should do.

The official definition of ‘a functional requirement’ is that it essentially specifies something the system should do.

Typically, functional requirements will specify a behavior or function, for example:
“Display the name, total size, available space and format of a flash drive connected to the USB port.” Other examples are “add customer” and “print invoice”.

Simply put, the difference is that non-functional requirements describe how the system works, while functional requirements describe what the system should do.

The definition for a non-functional requirement is that it essentially specifies how the system should behave and that it is a constraint upon the systems behavior. One could also think of non-functional requirements as quality attributes for of a system.

They are also known as quality or supplementary requirements. They can include requirements related to
-capacity
-speed

-availability and information
-architecture and
-presentation of user interface
Example of non functional requirement: After entering the login credentials by the user  to login into the system, how much speed the system take in order to login represents non functional requirement.

Post by: 171036906 on November 11, 2017, 09:02:29 am
I wanted to give a little more detail about each of the items on that list, and there's a good excerpt that I think will help.

Availability: A system's availability, or "uptime," is the amount of time that it is operational and available for use. This is specified because some systems are designed with expected downtime for activities like database upgrades and backups.
Efficiency: Specifies how well the software utilizes scarce resources: CPU cycles, disk space, memory, bandwidth, etc.
Flexibility: If the organization intends to increase or extend the functionality of the software after it is deployed, that should be planned from the beginning; it influences choices made during the design, development, testing, and deployment of the system.
Portability: Portability specifies the ease with which the software can be installed on all necessary platforms, and the platforms on which it is expected to run.
Integrity: Integrity requirements define the security attributes of the system, restricting access to features or data to certain users and protecting the privacy of data entered into the software.
Performance: The performance constraints specify the timing characteristics of the software. Certain tasks or features are more time-sensitive than others; the nonfunctional requirements should identify those software functions that have constraints on their performance.
Reliability: Reliability specifies the capability of the software to maintain its performance over time. Unreliable software fails frequently, and certain tasks are more sensitive to failure (for example, because they cannot be restarted, or because they must be run at a certain time).
Reusability: Many systems are developed with the ability to leverage common components across multiple products. Reusability indicates the extent to which software components should be designed in such a way that they can be used in applications other than the ones for which they were initially developed.
Robustness: A robust system is able to handle error conditions gracefully, without failure. This includes a tolerance of invalid data, software defects, and unexpected operating conditions.
Scalability: Software that is scalable has the ability to handle a wide variety of system configuration sizes. The nonfunctional requirements should specify the ways in which the system may be expected to scale up (by increasing hardware capacity, adding machines, etc.).
Usability: Ease-of-use requirements address the factors that constitute the capacity of the software to be understood, learned, and used by its intended users.

Here are four examples of Non-Functional requirement. They are as follows

Usability
Prioritize the important functions of the system based on usage patterns. Frequently used functions should be tested for usability, as should complex and critical functions.

Reliability
Users have to trust the system, even after using it for a long time. Create a requirement that data created in the system will be retained for a number of years without the data being changed by the system. Make it easier to monitor system performance.

Security
Security is the degree of resistance to, or protection from, harm. Its important to have this feature as a requirement.

supportability
The system needs to be cost-effective to maintain.

Non-functional requirements
The definition of a non-functional requirement is:

Any requirement which specifies how the system performs a certain function.

In other words, a non-functional requirement will describe how a system should behave and what limits there are on its functionality.

Non-functional requirements generally specify the system’s quality attributes or characteristics, for example: “Modified data in a database should be updated for all users accessing it within 2 seconds.”

A non-functional requirement for the cup mentioned previously would be: “contain hot liquid without heating up to more than 45 °C”.

Typical non-functional requirements include:

Performance – for example: response time, throughput, utilization, static volumetric
Scalability
Capacity
Availability
Reliability
Recoverability
Maintainability
Serviceability
Security
Regulatory
Manageability
Environmental
Data Integrity
Usability
Interoperability
It is important to correctly state non-functional requirements since they’ll affect your users’ experience when interacting with the system.

One way to prevent missing out on important non-functional requirements is to use non-functional requirement groups as a guide for listing them down.

Post by: 1171429410 on January 01, 2018, 01:37:16 pm
The Non functional requirements are there to support the functional requirements of the application. We can say they are indirectly present or present at the back end to support. These are scalability, speed, usability, security and capacity of the system developed. The non functional requirements can not be seen by the user at the front end of the application.
For example the home page must be displayed in 1 second.

As said above, non-functional requirements specify the system’s ‘quality characteristics’ or ‘quality attributes’.

Many different stakeholders have a vested interest in getting the non-functional requirements right particularly in the case of large systems where the buyer of the system is not necessarily also the user of the system.

In addition to the obvious features and functions that we will provide in our system, there are other requirements that don't actually do anything, but are important characteristics nevertheless, are called "Non-functional requirements" or sometimes "Quality Attributes."

For example, attributes such as performance, security, usability, compatibility are not a "feature" of the system, but are a required characteristic. We can't write a specific line of code to implement them, rather they are "emergent" properties that arise from the entire solution. The specification needs to describe any such attributes the customer requires. We must decide the kind of requirements that apply to our project and include those that are appropriate.

Here are some examples of non-functional requirements:

1. Performance requirements -
Requirements about resources required, response time, transaction rates, throughput, benchmark specifications or anything else having to do with performance.

2. Operating constraints -
List any run-time constraints. This could include system resources, people, needed software, ...

3. Platform constraints -
Discuss the target platform. Be as specific or general as the user requires. If the user doesn't care, there are still platform constraints.

4. Accuracy and Precision -
Requirements about the accuracy and precision of the data. (Do you know the difference?) Beware of 100% requirements; they often cost too much.

5. Modifiability -
Requirements about the effort required to make changes in the software. Often, the measurement is personnel effort (person- months).

6. Portability -
The effort required to move the software to a different target platform. The measurement is most commonly person-months or % of modules that need changing.

7. Reliability -
Requirements about how often the software fails. The measurement is often expressed in MTBF (mean time between failures). The definition of a failure must be clear. Also, don't confuse reliability with availability which is quite a different kind of requirement.  Be sure to specify the consequences of software failure, how to protect from failure, a strategy for error detection, and a strategy for correction.

8. Security -
One or more requirements about protection of your system and its data. The measurement can be expressed in a variety of ways (effort, skill level, time, ...) to break into the system.  Do not discuss solutions (e.g. passwords) in a requirements document.

9. Usability -
Requirements about how difficult it will be to learn and operate the system. The requirements are often expressed in learning time or similar metrics.

10. Legal -
There may be legal issues involving privacy of information, intellectual property rights, export of restricted technologies, etc.

NON FUNCTIONAL REQUIRMENTS

Software success cannot be achieved by simply delivering the right functionality. Users also have expectations, often unstated, about how well the product will work. Such expectations include how easy it is to use, how quickly it executes, how rarely it fails, how it handles unexpected conditions. Constitute a major portion of the system’s nonfunctional requirements.

Non functional Requirements describe the environment condition under which the solution must remain effective or qualities the system must have.

Quality attributes can distinguish a product that does what it’s supposed to from one that delights its users. Quality attributes serve as the origin of many functional requirements.

External quality attributes

External quality attributes describe characteristics that are observed when the software is executing.

Availability: Availability is a measure of the planned up time during which the system’s services are available for use and fully operational.

Installability.

Integrity: Integrity deals with preventing information loss and preserving the correctness of data entered into the system.

Interoperability: Interoperability indicates how readily the system can exchange data and services with other software systems and how easily it can integrate with external hardware devices.

Performance

Reliability: The probability of the software executing without failure for a specific period of time is known as reliability

Robustness: Robustness is the degree to which a system continues to function properly when confronted with invalid inputs, defects in connected software or hardware components, external attack, or unexpected operating  conditions.

Safety: Safety requirements deal with the need to prevent a system from doing any injury to people or  damage to property

Security: Security deals with blocking unauthorized access to system functions or data, ensuring that the software is protected from malware attacks, and so on.

Usability


Internal quality attributes

Internal quality attributes are not directly observable during execution of the software. They are properties that a developer or maintainer perceives while looking at the design or code to modify it, reuse it, or move it to another platform.

Efficiency: It is a measure of how well the system utilizes processor capacity, disk space, memory, or communication bandwidth.

Modifiability :Addresses how easily the software designs and code can be understood, changed, and extended.

Portability : The effort needed to migrate software from one operating environment to another is a measure of portability.

Reusability : Reusability indicates the relative effort required to convert a software component for use in other Applications

Scalability: Scalability requirements address the ability of the application to grow to accommodate more users, data, servers, geographic locations, transactions, network traffic, and other services without compromising performance or correctness.

Verifiability :Refers to how well software components or the integrated product can be evaluated to demonstrate whether the system functions as expected.

Two other classes of non functional  requirements are constraints and external interface requirements.

Constraints
A constraint places restrictions on the design or implementation choices available to the developer.

External interface requirements

User interfaces: Describe the logical characteristics of each user interface that the system needs.

Software interfaces: Describe the connections between this product and other software components, including other applications, databases, operating systems, tools, libraries, websites, and integrated commercial components.

Hardware interfaces: Describe the characteristics of each interface between the software components and hardware components,

Communications interfaces: State the requirements for any communication functions the product will use, including email, web browser, network protocols, and electronic forms.

Non-functional requirements describe the conditions that do not directly relate to the behaviour or functionality of the solution. These are requirements that describe the environmental conditions under which the solution must remain effective, in other words the qualities the system must have to function efficiently. These requirements, typically are related to the capacity, speed, security, availability, the information architecture and presentation of user interface.

In addition to the obvious features and functions that you will provide in your system, there are other requirements that don't actually DO anything, but are important characteristics nevertheless. These are called "non-functional requirements" or sometimes "Quality Attributes." 

Definition would be, "Any requirement that is not functional which cannot be categorized into Functional, Data or Process requirements."

For example, attributes such as performance, security, Reliability, usability, compatibility, aren't a "feature" of the system.

Create a requirement that data created in the system will be retained for a number of years without the data being changed by the system.
It’s a good idea to also include requirements that make it easier to monitor system performance.

Performance

What should system response times be, as measured from any point, under what circumstances?
Are there specific peak times when the load on the system will be unusually high?
Think of stress periods, for example, at the end of the month or in conjunction with payroll disbursement.

Supportability

The system needs to be cost-effective to maintain.
Maintainability requirements may cover diverse levels of documentation, such as system documentation, as well as test documentation, e.g. which test cases and test plans will accompany the system.

Nonfunctional Requirements (NFRs) define system attributes such as security, reliability, performance, maintainability, scalability, and usability. They serve as constraints or restrictions on the design of the system across the different backlogs.
Also known as system qualities, nonfunctional requirements are just as critical as functional Epics, Capabilities, Features, and Stories. They ensure the usability and effectiveness of the entire system. Failing to meet any one of them can result in systems that fail to satisfy internal business, user, or market needs, or that do not fulfill mandatory requirements imposed by regulatory or standards agencies.

Non-functional Requirements : defines conditions that do not directly connected to the behavior or functionality of the solution, but rather describe environmental conditions under which the solution must remain effective or qualities that the systems must have.
Non-functional requirement example – “The system response time shall be maximum 2 seconds.”

In other words, Non Functional requirements would describe the how the system works and Functional Requirements does specify what system is supposed to do.

Most of the requirement gathering techniques focuses/allows to focus on the Functional requirement.

The statements under this requirements talks about security, Performance, Reliability, usability.
If any one of the above requirements are failed to met, then the system fails to satisfy the business needs of the internal customers. So, Non functional requirements are equally important as Functional requirements as they ensure the usability and effectiveness of the entire system.

Non functional requirements are the requirements that describe the underlying qualities of a system rather than what specific functions we expect the system needs to be able to be perform. The main categories of non functional requirement are:

>Reliability
>Compliance
>Performance
>Scalability
>Integrity
>Speed
 >Capacity
>Usability
>Reusability

non functional requirements include the external as well as internal factors which can support the project or the application or the software which is being made. for example suppose in a mobile phone all good qualities and functionality is being given but the ram which is most important for provinding speed to it is low. then the applcation which has been able to carry out all the good support system won't be a success. hence there is a need for a higher space of ram.
also suppose if any application is being made, which requires internet connection but while using the app net is not proper, then that particular app won't work. hence there is a need to provide it with a a network which can speed up the apps performance.
thus extra ram, and network connectivity here can be called as the non functionality requirements.

NON FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS: It describes how system works and it define what the system is supposed to do  and these are called as quality attributes of the system. And it has some examples for the non-functional requirements, they are
1. Usability: Prioritize the important functions of the system based on the usage patterns.
2. Reliability:Users have to trust the system even the system is used for long time. Create a requirement that data created in the system will be retained for a number of years with out the data being changed by the system.
3. Performance: We have to check the system response time must be measured form any point under the circumstances.
4. Supportability: Maintainability requirements may cover diverse level of documentation such as system documentation as well as test documentation

Non-functional requirements are often called "quality attributes" of a system. Other terms for non-functional requirements are "qualities", "quality goals", "quality of service requirements", "constraints", "non-behavioral requirements", or "technical requirements".Informally these are sometimes called the "ilities", from attributes like stability and portability. Qualities that is non-functional requirements can be divided into two main categories:

1)Execution qualities, such as safety, security and usability, which are observable during operation (at run time).
2)Evolution qualities, such as testability, maintainability, extensible and scalability, which are embodied in the static structure of the system

For Example: Performance , stress testing would be considered as non functional requirement.

The challenges in developing non-functional requirements (NFRs) for an application platform go much beyond those for a single application system. To derive platform NFRs from NFR specifications of different domain applications, requirements analysts must deal with much variation of domain specific NFRs, with different deployment configurations and load conditions, with different NFR related trade-offs,
as well as with different terminology and metric definitions
the following main challenges have been identified
Varying domain-specific needs
Varying deployment configurations and load conditions:
Terminology and metrics mismatch

if any software that has been built does not support multiple users, concurrency, dead lock countering mechanism, then the software is of no use from the client point of view,
these non functional requirements are not obvious but they are understood during development, and every software that will be built
are no matter what are ensured to be scalable, reliable, portable, needs to have the fault tolerance, needs to maintain the data integrity,
and every software should be user friendly.

Non-functional Requirements (NFRs) mean those requirements that are not related to the functionality of the system as the name says it.

A non-functional requirement places constraints on “How should the software system fulfill the functional requirements?”

Ex: Let’s imagine a online ticket movie booking system. Customers will login to view the latest Movies and booking details. What kind of load it will have when the results are declared? Hundred thousands of Customers will log into the system within ~15 secs of the data being published. The system must be able to handle such a huge load of requests.

Non Functional Requirement: As the name says, so is the meaning. When a functionality tends to be a feature of the application, the opposite being non-functional can be termed as focusing on functionality's behavior.
When every functional requirement says, "action" to be done, while every non-functional requirement defines the quality to be delivered of that functionality.
For ex: We have a functionality, "Admin should be able to view all the orders in the system"
Some non-functionality requirements samples could be,
1) Performance - In what time should the system take to load the data?
2) Usability - Is the screen usable enough for the end user?
3) Security - How secured are we in showing the customer data?

Usually, the non-functional requirements would be defined by client or in some organizations, they define a standard for themselves and follow them.

Title: Non Functional Requirements
Post by: 1192168812 on May 29, 2020, 12:43:25 pm
Basically, non-functional requirements relate to qualities of the system that cut across user-facing features, such as security, reliability, and performance. Non-functional is probably a bad name because it sounds like these requirements are intangible, simply properties of a static system. However, these requirements do affect the function of the system and it is possible to design tests that these qualities are present.

The difference from functional requirements is that these qualities must be present throughout the system rather than delivered in a one-shot like a user-facing feature. Alternative terms for non-functional requirements are "constraints", "quality attributes", "quality goals" and "quality of service requirements" but let’s stick to calling them "non-functional requirements" (NFR) for now. So they have to be considered in every development cycle and factored into our test strategy.

NFR can be grouped into:

Execution qualities, such as security and usability, which are observable at run time.
Evolution qualities, such as testability, maintainability, extensibility, and scalability, which are embodied in the static structure of the software system.

Nonfunctional Requirements Nonfunctional Requirements (NFRs) define system attributes such as security, reliability, performance, maintainability, scalability, and usability. They serve as constraints or restrictions on the design of the system across the different backlogs. Also known as system qualities, nonfunctional requirements are just as critical as functional Epics, Capabilities, Features, and Stories. They ensure the usability and effectiveness of the entire system. Failing to meet any one of them can result in systems that fail to satisfy internal business, user, or market needs, or that do not fulfill mandatory requirements imposed by regulatory or standards agencies.  In some cases, non-compliance can cause significant legal issues (privacy, security, safety, to name a few). NFRs are persistent qualities and constraints that, unlike functional requirements, are typically revisited as part of the Definition of Done (DoD) for each Iteration, Program Increment (PI), or release. NFRs influence all backlogs: Team, Program, Solution, and Portfolio. Proper definition and implementation of NFRs is critical. Over-specify them, and the solution may be too costly to be viable; under-specify or underachieve them, and the system will be inadequate for its intended use. An adaptive and incremental approach to exploring, defining, and implementing NFRs is a vital skill for Agile teams.

These describe how the system is to interface with its environment, users, and other systems. For example, user interfaces and their qualities (e.g., user-friendliness).
Economic constraints ?
Immediate and/or long-term costs.
Lifecycle requirements ? Quality of the design:
These measured in terms such as maintainability, enhance ability, portability.
Advantages of Non-Functional Requirement :

They ensure the software system follows legal and adherence rules.
They specify the quality attribute of the software.
They ensure the reliability, availability, performance, and scalability of the software system
They help in constructing the security policy of the software system.
They ensure good user experience, ease of operating the software, and minimize the cost factor.

Non-functional requirements are conditions that are not directly related to the behaviour or functionality of the solution but describe the environmental conditions under which the solution must remain effective just like the quality supplementary requirements. Ex- Scalability, capacity, availability, reliability, etc.

Simply said, a non-functional requirement is a specification that describes the system?s operation capabilities and constraints that enhance its functionality. These may be speed, security, reliability, etc. We?ve already covered different types of software requirements, but this time we?ll focus on non-functional ones, and how to approach and document them.

If you?ve ever dealt with non-functional requirements, you may know that different sources and guides use different terminology. For instance, the ISO/IEC 25000 standards framework defines non-functional requirements as system quality and software quality requirements. BABOK, one of the main knowledge sources for business analysts, suggests the term non-functional requirements (NFR), which is currently the most common definition. Nevertheless, these designations consider the same type of matter ? the requirements that describe operational qualities rather than a behavior of the product.

The list of them also varies depending on the source. And, frankly, it may differ for different products. For instance, if you intend to collect any user data and your website operates in the EU, you must meet GDPR compliance rules. In some cases, this may not be relevant to you. Or you may have additional compliance requirements if you process payments.

In this article, we?ll cover only the most common types that should make it to your checklist. However, there may be hundreds of them. Usually, such sources as BABOK list non-functional requirements in an isolated manner. We grouped some of them since the approaches to documenting these requirements overlap and some can?t be estimated without the other ones:

Performance and scalability. How fast does the system return results? How much will this performance change with higher workloads?

Portability and compatibility. Which hardware, operating systems, browsers, and their versions does the software run on? Does it conflict with other applications and processes within these environments?

Reliability, availability, maintainability. How often does the system experience critical failures? and how much time is it available to users against downtimes?

Security. How are the system and its data protected against attacks?

Localization. Does the system match local specifics?

Usability. How easy is it for a customer to use the system?

Performance and scalability
Performance defines how fast a software system or its particular piece responds to certain users? actions under certain workload. In most cases, this metric explains how much a user must wait before the target operation happens (the page renders, a transaction is processed, etc.) given the overall number of users at the moment. But it?s not always like that. Performance requirements may describe background processes invisible to users, e.g. backup. But let?s focus on user-centric performance.

Scalability assesses the highest workloads under which the system will still meet the performance requirements.

Nonfunctional Requirements (NFRs) define system attributes such as security, reliability, performance, maintainability, scalability, and usability. They serve as constraints or restrictions on the design of the system across the different backlogs. Also known as system qualities, nonfunctional requirements are just as critical as functional Epics, Capabilities, Features, and Stories. They ensure the usability and effectiveness of the entire system. Failing to meet any one of them can result in systems that fail to satisfy internal business, user, or market needs, or that do not fulfill mandatory requirements imposed by regulatory or standards agencies. In some cases, non-compliance can cause significant legal issues (privacy, security, safety, to name a few). NFRs are persistent qualities and constraints that, unlike functional requirements, are typically revisited as part of the Definition of Done (DoD) for each Iteration, Program Increment (PI), or release. NFRs influence all backlogs: Team, Program, Solution, and Portfolio. Proper definition and implementation of NFRs is critical. Over-specify them, and the solution may be too costly to be viable; under-specify or underachieve them, and the system will be inadequate for its intended use. An adaptive and incremental approach to exploring, defining, and implementing NFRs is a vital skill for Agile teams

This describes the attributes a system or process should possess and not a function that system must perform. The documents that are prepared for non-functional requirements are known as Supplementary Support Document (SSD).
In short, non-functional requirements can be described as non-technical requirement such as speed, accuracy, response time.

Non-functional requirements are also known as quality or supplementary requirements. They capture conditions that do not directly relate to the behavior or functionality of the solution. These can include requirement related to capacity, security, speed, availability and the information architecture and presentation of the user interface. Non-functional requirements may also describe aspects of the system that don't relate to it's execution, but rather to it's evolution over time (e.g. maintainability, extensibility, documentation, etc).

Non-functional requirements are traditionally the requirements that are more difficult to define, measure, test, and track. In many cases this can lead to teams using only functional requirements or having to constantly evaluate their non-functional requirements for correctness. We can view non-functional requirements then, as the set of requirements that define the ?HOW SHOULD IT BE? aspects of your system.

For example: All help text, in-application and documentation, will be provided in English, French, and Spanish.

When defining purposeful non-functional requirements (NFR?s), teams should begin by defining their non-functional requirements for a wide variety of system attributes. These attributes are categorized within three following aspects of a system:

Operational NFR?s
Revisional NFR?s
Transitional NFR?s

Nonfunctional requirements are not the behavior of the required solutions. nonfunctional requirements can be described as  non tech requirements.
Ex: page loading, themes, Fonts,  Browsers, security.

usability: The usability of a software or application should be user friendly, where the portability of a screen and login pages , etc., should be easy to understand for the end users, users will also start to explore about the performance or usability of a system for example if the system is running an application and alternatively the user needs to open another system at that time the system performance will be accessed, at that time performance shouldn?t slowdown even though one application is running on the back ground.
Reliability: Reliability is the one requirement to some extent how users can rely on the solution to be accessible and work what needed. It show how frequently the system shows critical failures.
Performance: The performance is nothing but the execution of the system how fast the system shows the output of a user requirement, like loading of new page, payment execution time, buffering period
Security: It is a non functional requirement which the end user does not know about it but it is very essential requirement of how the system and the data is protected from the hackers and other cyber crime people, etc.,   
Compatibility: compatibility defines how the system will adapt with another and third party system with  the same environment and work together with progress of a project
Data Integrity: It is critical approach of to implement of usage of system which gathers ,saves, and recover data.it will be consistent and accuracy.

Non Fictional Requirement refer to needs that must be fulfilled related to things like user interface, access security, availability, system failure, integration and migration. They do not deal with actual functionality of the system but represent key project success factors.

Non-functional requirements specify how a system should perform a function, including the constraints and minimum requirements. Non-functional requirements are the quality attributes of the system which includes performance, reliability, recover-ability, security, data integrity and usability.
The main elements of the non-functional requirements analysis are,
?   Availability - A degree to which the solution is operable and accessible when required for use.
?   Compatibility - A degree to which the solution operates effectively with other components in its environment.
?   Functionality - A degree to which the solutions functions meet the users needs, including the aspects of accuracy and suitability.
?   Maintainability - With which a solution can be modified to correct the fault and improve the performance.
?   Performance Efficiency - A degree to which a solution performs its designated functions with minimum consumption of resources.
?   Portability - With which a solution can be transferred from one environment to another.
?   Reliability - Ability of the solution to perform its required functions under stated conditions for a specified period of time.
?   Security - That protect the solution content or the solution components from malicious access or the destruction.
?   Usability - With which a user can learn to use the solution.
?   Certification - Constraints on the solution that are necessary to meet the certain standards.
?   Localization - Requirements dealing with local languages, cultures, laws, and other characteristics of the users, which require attention to the context.
?   Service Level Agreements - Constraints of the organization being served by the solution that are formally agreed by both the provider and the user of the solution.
?   Extensible - The ability of the solution to incorporate new functionality.

Non-functional requirements are the criteria for evaluating how a software system should perform and a software system must have certain quality attributes in order to meet non-functional requirements. So when we say a system should be "secure", "highly-available", "portable", "scalable" and so on, we are talking about its quality attributes. Other terms for non-functional requirements are "qualities", "quality goals", "quality of service requirements", "constraints", "non-behavioral requirements

Non-functional Requirements serve as constraints or restrictions on the design of the system across the different backlogs. They ensure the usability and effectiveness of the entire system.
Security ? Does your product store or transmit sensitive information? Does your IT department require adherence to specific standards? What security best practices are used in your industry?
Capacity ? What are your system?s storage requirements, today and in the future? How will your system scale up for increasing volume demands?
Compatibility ? What are the minimum hardware requirements? What operating systems and their versions must be supported?
Reliability and Availability ? What is the critical failure time under normal usage? Does a user need access to this all hours of every day?
Maintainability and Manageability?How much time does it take to fix components, and how easily can an administrator manage the system?
Scalability ? What are the highest workloads under which the system will still perform as expected?
Usability ? How easy is it to use the product?

Types of Non-Functional Requirements
There are many common categories of non functional requirements.

NFRs are often thought of as the ?itys.? While the specifics will vary between products, having a list of these NFR types defined up front provides a handy checklist to make sure you?re not missing critical requirements.

This is not an exhaustive list, but here?s what we mean: 

NFR ?Itys?
Security ? Does your product store or transmit sensitive information? Does your IT department require adherence to specific standards? What security best practices are used in your industry?

Capacity ? What are your system?s storage requirements, today and in the future? How will your system scale up for increasing volume demands?

Compatibility ? What are the minimum hardware requirements? What operating systems and their versions must be supported?

Reliability and Availability ? What is the critical failure time under normal usage? Does a user need access to this all hours of every day?

Maintainability  + Manageability?How much time does it take to fix components, and how easily can an administrator manage the system? Under this umbrella, you could also define Recoverability and Serviceability.

Scalability ? The Black Friday test. What are the highest workloads under which the system will still perform as expected?

Usability ? How easy is it to use the product? What defines the experience of using the product?
