Simply put, atomic requirements are singular statements that have all the relevant information you need in one sentence.

If atomic requirements are so widely accepted as a standard in requirement writing – why isn’t this practice consistently used across requirement engineering industries,
and why are we here at QRA talking about it so much?

In this use case, we will investigate how to write atomically, the issues with non-atomic requirements, and dive into some examples of atomic and non-atomic requirements.
