User Needs List

This is a list of your user needs (also referred to as “stakeholder requirements”). This is what you would most commonly start with for your requirements mapping: it is the most high-level part of your design input. Describe the generic requirements your device will need to meet. Only in a next step, these user needs will be translated into (and linked to) software requirements which will present the technical specifications of your product.

Of course, you could also use your own tool like Jira or GitHub issues for this. Just ensure that the content (i.e. the columns shown here) is roughly the same.
