    The software industry is more than ever facing the challenge of delivering WYGIWYW software (what you get is what you want). A well-structured document specifying adequate, complete, consistent, precise, and measurable requirements is a critical prerequisite for such software. Goals have been recognized to be among the driving forces for requirements elicitation, elaboration, organization, analysi... View full abstract»

    Mission critical and complex software projects habitually exceed budget expectations significantly. Dependable cost estimates are often required by customers long before detailed analysis and design activities would produce this information during a project. A number of estimation methodologies have evolved to produce reliable cost information at an early stage in the software life-cycle, however ... View full abstract»

    This work presents an approach to the specification and validation of transactional business software. The focus of this work is on the production of detailed use case specifications and on the precise definition of all transactions and business rules using a subset of UML diagrams combined with textual specifications written in OCL (Object Constraint Language). We show how to produce and validate... View full abstract»

    The commercial use of the Internet for service provision has deeply changed the environment where human-computer interaction takes place, as Web interfaces are now integrated in multi-platform service provision. This work presents the results of a study of a multi-channel Portuguese bank, making use of both marketing and HCI methods and concepts, to understand customer usage of the different servi...

    Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) has been attracting much attention in the software engineering community by advocating that programs should be structured according to programmer concerns, such as "efficient use of memory". However, like other programming paradigms in their early days, AOP hasn't addressed yet earlier phases of software development. In particular, it is still an open question how... View full abstract»

    Aspect-oriented software development (AOSD) techniques support systematic modularization and composition of crosscutting concerns. Though AOSD techniques have been proposed to handle crosscutting concerns at various stages during the software life cycle, there is a traceability gap between the aspects at the requirements level and those at later development stages. It is not clear what proof oblig... View full abstract»

    There has been significant recent interest, within the aspect-oriented software development (AOSD) community, in representing crosscutting concerns at various stages of the software lifecycle. However, most of these efforts have concentrated on the design and implementation phases. We focus in This work on representing aspects during use case modeling. In particular, we focus on scenario-based req... View full abstract»

    Requirements engineering (RE) process improvement methods typically work with explicit process models describing activities and document flow between the stakeholders involved, and with explicit document definitions. In complex, multi-project contexts, however, the RE process is better characterized as intertwining of design, negotiation, and sense-making. In the first part of This work, we presen...

  • Architecture-driven problem decomposition

    Jackson's problem frames provide a means of analysing and decomposing problems. They emphasise the world outside the computer helping the developer to focus on the problem domain instead of drifting into inventing solutions. The intention is to delay consideration of the solution space until a good understanding of the problem is gained. In contrast, early consideration of a solution architecture ... View full abstract»

    This work presents four engineering patterns which have been successfully used for adopting RE methods and conducting RE activities in projects. The patterns address project leaders. They propose an organizational sub-structure for RE within projects and are covering requirements elicitation, specification and validation. The paper tries to capture engineering knowledge in the format of patterns w... View full abstract»

  • The effect of trust assumptions on the elaboration of security requirements

    Assumptions are frequently made during requirements analysis of a system-to-be about the trustworthiness of its various components (including human components). These trust assumptions can affect the scope of the analysis, derivation of security requirements, and in some cases, how functionality is realized. This work presents trust assumptions in the context of analysis of security requirements. ... View full abstract»

  • Identifying stakeholders and their preferences about NFR by comparing use case diagrams of several existing systems

    We present a method to identify stakeholders and their preferences about non-functional requirements (NFR) by using use case diagrams of existing systems. We focus on the changes about NFR because such changes help stakeholders to identify their preferences. Comparing different use case diagrams of the same domain helps us to find the changes that can occur. We utilize the goal-question-metrics (G... View full abstract»

  • Composing requirements using problem frames

    Problem frames are a systematic approach to the decomposition of problems that allows us to relate requirements, domain properties, and machine specifications. Having decomposed a problem, one approach to solving it is through a process of composing solutions to sub-problems. In This work, we contribute to supporting such a process by providing a way to compose multiple problem frames. We develop ... View full abstract»

    Cross-organizational requirements engineering (XRE) is the activity in which several business actors perform a joint problem-solving process in which a cooperative, cross-organizational business solution is designed. In XRE, partially conflicting concerns and views must be reconciled to create a shared vision of the goals and structure of a cooperative process. We report on the development of an X...
