ESSENCE — Entry Criteria on Abstract Activities

  • Key: ESSENCE-167
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19029
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Ivar Jacobson International AB ( Michael Striewe)
  • Summary:

    Problem to be solved: It can be considered useful in practice to have not only completion criteria for activities, but also entry criteria. While the spec supports the former, it does not support the latter.

    Proposed solution: Add optional entry criteria. Language element “CompletionCriterion” can be renamed to “Criterion” and be reused for that purpose. Possibly card updates in section 9.7.6.8 (pages 132-133) are necessary to make clear how entry criteria are shown on the cards.

  • Disposition: Resolved — Essence 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    The issue author raises a valid point. Change the preexisting CompletionCriterion into an abstract and neutral Criterion, which then can be specialized into an EntryCriterion and CompletionCriterion.
