    Publication Year: 2005
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (61 KB)

    Summary form only given. Can software really be made dependable? And if it was, would we be able to recognize it? For the last two years, the author had been chairing a study of the National Academy of Sciences on dependable software, and have had the opportunity to hear - in a workshop held last year, and in open sessions of the committee - anecdotes and viewpoints that have often surprised him. ...

  • The role of information systems within corporate strategy and management policies new challenges

    Publication Year: 2005
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (63 KB)

    Summary form only given. Until now, IT engineers, and particularly project teams working to tight deadlines, have felt that they are little more than IT masons, with no clear overall vision of what they are on. Today they have to become bona fide architects, which take time. It is also necessary to federate - within a department in charge of IT landscaping and functional architecture - the IT arch...

  • Configuring common personal software: a requirements-driven approach

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):9 - 18
    Cited by:  Papers (15)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (544 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We investigate the personalization capabilities of common personal software systems. We use a typical e-mail client as an example of such a system, and examine the configuration screens it offers to its users. We discover that each configuration value reflects each of the ways with which the user goals can be satisfied. Thus, we construct a goal model in which alternative ways for satisfying high ...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (307 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A framework for requirements analysis is proposed that accounts for individual and personal goals and the effect of time and context on personal requirements. The implications of the framework on system architecture are considered as three implementation pathways: functional specifications, development of customisable features and automatic adaptation by the system. These pathways imply the need t... View full abstract»

  • An approach to constructing feature models based on requirements clustering

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (648 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Feature models have been widely adopted in software reuse to organize the requirements of a set of similar applications in a software domain/product line. However, in most feature-oriented methods, the construction of feature models heavily depends on the domain analysts' personal understanding, and the work of constructing feature models from the original requirements of sample applications is of...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (408 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The explicit definition of variability in software product lines is a key difference between the development of single software systems and software product line engineering. More and more companies maintain several software product lines which focus on different types of products, market segments, and/or domains. Those product lines typically share commonalities and variability. The companies thu... View full abstract»

    Emerging Web services technologies provide an open infrastructure for automated business interaction, thereby creating new opportunities for business actors to collaborate within a networked constellation of enterprises via the Internet. The basis for a viable network of Web services (the supporting information system of such a networked constellation of enterprises) is a value model that shows so... View full abstract»

    A key issue in requirements engineering (RE) for enterprise resource planning (ERP) in a cross-organizational context is how to find a match between the ERP application modules and requirements for business coordination. This paper proposes a conceptual framework for analyzing coordination requirements in inter-organizational ERP projects from a coordination theory perspective. It considers the un...

    User involvement is the key concept in the development of useful and usable systems and has positive effects on system success and user satisfaction. This paper reports the results of interviews and a survey conducted to investigate the role of user involvement in defining user requirements in development projects. The survey involved 18 software practitioners working in software related developme... View full abstract»

    The challenge of the requirements engineering to digital consumer products lies in that the users are unknown many of wide variety. The major contributions of this article include a technique to identify persona to provide a rich contextual model of a group of primary targeted users based on conjoint analysis theory, and a technique to identify the value and hot spots in the requirements through t...

    Interviews with stakeholders can be a useful method for identifying user needs and establishing requirements. However, interviews are also problematic. They are time consuming and may result in insufficient, irrelevant or invalid data. Our goal is to re-examine the methodology of interview design, to determine how various contextual factors affect the success of interviews in requirements engineer... View full abstract»

    Being successful in product development means to deliver the right products or solutions at the right time for the right markets. While requirements engineering (RE) plays a key role in selecting and managing requirements for a given project, the "upstream process" before the project start often remains vague. Typically this upstream process is decoupled from the project related RE processes, whic... View full abstract»

    Complex artefacts, such as information systems (IS), have multiple aspects and components: business processes, databases, architecture, or software. It is generally agreed that all these should be kept consistent over time. One major issue to preserve consistency is when required evolutions affect multiple aspects or components of the system at the same time. As each evolution requirement can have...

    Our group has taken a clinical approach to doing requirements engineering for a specific domain: delivering email tools to the cognitively impaired population. The clinical view suggests a process that first gathers an individual's goals, assesses the individual's abilities, delivers a tailored system, and finally, monitors usage over time to look for adaptation needs. One concept that has arisen ... View full abstract»
