Modelling the contribution structure underlying requirements

Gotel, O. & Finkelstein, A. ORCID: 0000-0003-2167-9844 (1994). Modelling the contribution structure underlying requirements. Paper presented at the 1st International Workshop on Requirements Engineering: Foundations for Software Quality.


Improvements in requirements traceability (RT) are essential for developing better quality software systems. Based upon empirical investigations with practitioners, and an extensive survey of techniques and tool support for requirements engineering (RE), we explain why conventional RT can only support limited improvements in quality, and suggest extensions required to provide further improvements. These extensions revolve around the ability to continuously model, and hence trace, those who have contributed in the production and refinement of the requirements specification (RS). In this paper, we propose an approach to support such modelling, outline preliminary details, and discuss how it provides the foundations for developing quality software.
