How to Write Engineering Requirements in Excel

Here’s a simple step by step guide on how to write engineering requirements in excel:

  1. Start with a new Excel sheet or workbook.
  2. Label the first row with clear and concise headers such as “Requirement ID”, “Requirement Description”, “Priority”, “Status”, etc.
  3. In each subsequent row, fill in the details of each requirement.
  4. Use the filter and sort functions to organize the requirements based on priority, status, etc.
  5. Use conditional formatting to highlight important requirements, such as those with high priority or those that are overdue.
  6. Consider using a drop-down list for certain columns to ensure consistent data entry.
  7. Save and regularly update the document to ensure accuracy and completeness.
