    As the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and modeldriven development (MDD) become increasingly common in industry, many developers are faced with the difficult task of understanding how an existing UML model realizes system requirements. Essentially, developers are required to understand the structure and behavior of UML models that they may have not created. Understanding these relationships is non... View full abstract»

    Information systems can be visualized with many tools. Typically these tools present functional artifacts from various phases of the development life-cycle; these include requirements models, architecture and design diagrams, and implementation code. The syntactic structures of these artifacts are often presented in a textual language using symbols, or a graphical one using nodes and edges. In thi... View full abstract»

    Capturing structural relationships between requirements is essential for effective visualization. Existing techniques such as UML, SysML, and goaloriented requirement engineering present a relationship focused approach in visualization; however, a commonly shared understanding of requirement-based relationships has not yet emerged. Considerations in structural and visual representation of requirem... View full abstract»

    The benefits of aspects and aspect-oriented modelling are beginning to be recognized for requirements engineering activities. However, once aspects have been identified, the behaviour, structure, and pointcut expressions of aspects need to be modeled unobtrusively at the requirements level, allowing the engineer to seamlessly focus either on the behaviour and structure of the system without aspect...

    This paper describes a new visualization technique for helping analysts to understand the potential impact of changing requirements, and for providing valuable early feedback on the quality of a software design. Based on the candidate links that are automatically generated by a trace retrieval tool, VisMatrix creates a graphical representation of the requirements trace matrix showing not only wher...

    In this paper, we are emphasizing our perfect appreciation of using visualization means in requirements engineering as key success factor in any complex (software) development project. We are discussing our experiences with requirements engineering visualization, in the large part gained in the course of a three years multidisciplinary software development project in the insurance domain. A busine... View full abstract»

    When the requirements in a software system change, we should notify every contributor who participates in the analysis, design, implementation, and testing of the requirement to reduce rework. However, the network of contributors working on a requirement is constantly changing, making it not only difficult to seek expertise from other team members, but also difficult to send requirements-change in...

    Software release planning is a complex task, as many different factors must be considered. Project managers can't cope with the complexity of release planning. Project managers need a tool support in release planning. Existing tools for release planning are not appropriate or are one tool in a set of specialized tools in a project. Using more tools leads to inconsistent data among this set of tool... View full abstract»

    The quality of the Requirements Engineering (RE) process plays a critical role in successfully developing software systems. Often, in software organizations, RE processes are assessed and improvements are applied to overcome their deficiency. However, such improvements may not yield desired results for two reasons. First, the assessed deficiency may be inaccurate because of ambiguities in measurem... View full abstract»

    For several years we have been employing a riskbased decision process to guide development and application of advanced technologies, and for research and technology portfolio planning. The process is supported by custom software, in which visualization plays an important role. During requirements gathering, visualization is used to help scrutinize the status (completeness, extent) of the informati... View full abstract»
