    The incorporation of optional components (i.e. software modules that cannot be analysed to produce realistic worst case execution times) into hard real-time applications has been recognised as a key issue for the next generation of real-time systems. A system model is presented that caters for the three main approaches to integrating optional components: milestone methods, sieve functions and mult... View full abstract»

    Key information relating to requirements production is either lost or unrecoverable as a consequence of conventional requirements engineering practices. This includes, most significantly, information about the individuals and groups from whom requirements were originally elicited and by whom they were subsequently refined. An approach is outlined of rendering such information traceable, which anch... View full abstract»

    The paper presents the first stage of work in enhancing CASE tools in the general area of student guidance for methods and techniques. A comparison is made between the integration of CASE and CAL and the incorporation of learning features within CASE. This shows how the merging of CASE and CAL produces enhanced learning for students. Particular attention is given to the creation of automated walkt... View full abstract»

  • Trust and co-operation in system development: applying responsibility modelling to the problem of changing requirements

    Although some progress has been made in recent years towards developing more effective methods for eliciting and representing requirements for software systems, little progress has been made towards developing tools and techniques that address the impact of changing requirements or of proposing changes to the a priori processes and structures for requirements analysis that dominate current systems...

    An overview of knowledge engineering research, practice, theories, methodologies, and tools is presented, and parallels are drawn with analogous phenomena and activities in requirements engineering. Knowledge based systems are distinguished from other advanced information systems by their reflective emphasis on meta information processing about the basis of system operation. In terms of requiremen... View full abstract»

  • ACRE: selecting methods for requirements acquisition

    Publication Year: 1996 , Page(s): 183 - 192

    A framework is presented that assists requirements engineers in choosing methods for requirements acquisition. Practitioners are often unaware of the range of methods available. Even when practitioners are aware, most do not foresee the need to use several methods to acquire complete and accurate requirements. One reason for this is the lack of guidelines for method selection. The ACRE framework s... View full abstract»
