repetative and redundant writing

Here's a fabulously redundant expression by Walter Royce in his book
    Software Project Management

"Requirements artifacts are evaluated, assessed, and measured through a combination of the following..."

Is it just me, or is Mr. Royce in need of an editor? To ensure I had a grasp on these words I looked them up in a dictionary, and sure enough they all are descriptive verbs for ascertaing or fixing the value or worth of an entity.
