There are some important points
Unified Process uses FURPS+ model
Requirements are capabilities and conditions to which the system must confirm.
According to Rational Unified Process, Requirements Management is a systematic approach to finding, documenting, organizing and tracking the changing requirements of a system.
If any of the following is true then inception phase is not understood:
Inception phase should be very brief. Its duration should not be more than one week. Move quickly to elaboration iff:
Its the first phase of Unified Process in which common vision and basic scope of the project is established. It mainly includes:
