DEL CASTILLO GUEVARA, Jorge; MENA MUGICA, Mayra Marta  and  TORRES PONJUAN, Deborah. Proposal of general requirements for the document management system at the University of Havana. Rev. cuba. inf. cienc. salud [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.1, e1640.  Epub Mar 01, 2021. ISSN 2307-2113.

The purpose of the study was to propose a general requirements specification for the document management system at the University of Havana, in keeping with more responsible, open, transparent and inclusive governance, an accountability-oriented approach and greater social control. The research had a descriptive design, a mixed approach and qualitative predominance. To contribute to the development of an information system which would build capacities on the basis of quality information in this institution, the study was based on the triangulation of two methodologies: one from the document management domain and the other from requirements engineering. As a result, 22 items and 201 requirements were presented, both functional and non-functional, of a flexible and modular nature, which should be established for the effective operation of the document management system at this university.

Keywords : Requirements specification; functional requirements; non-functional requirements; document management system; University of Havana.
