Abstract -
Requirement engineering is foremost and essential activity in software development process. Its impotence is evident, model building is time-consuming as it emphasizes the understanding of what is required by the user and what should be given to the user. The model built using use case is a combination of diagram and text, the only diagram is not sufficient to specify user requirement. To support diagram some textual information is must, this makes model self-explanatory. This paper presents the idea about requirement specifications using use case model, where proper combination of diagram and text will be presented to make the idea clear.
