 Randy Miller's Blog : Quality of Service Requirements
The name 'Quality of Service Requirement' was suggested as alternative to 'nonfunctional requirement' or 'quality attribute' in MSF for Agile Software Development by Sam Guckenheimer.
Nonfunctional requirements, quality attributes, and quality of service requirements are names for the constraints on functional requirements such as performance, security, and platform.
The important aspect of a quality of service requirement is that it does not describe functionality but instead constrains other functionality, the presentation of that functionality, the implementation of that functionality, or its environment.
