Chapter 8. Supplementary Specification

The Supplementary Specification captures all requirements that cannot be expressed in use cases. This does not mean, however, that all functional requirements are in use cases and that all nonfunctional requirements are in the Supplementary Specification. The Use Case Specification also contains nonfunctional requirements if they apply to only one use case.
