Requirements engineering is a field of knowledge concerned with the systematic process of eliciting, analyzing and modeling requirements. Though it is usually understood in relation to software system requirements, most of its principles and some of its techniques can be adapted to other problems dealing with complex sets of requirements. The engineering vision indicates that this should be a practical and well-defined process where trade-offs have to be considered to obtain the best results. Mature software development needs mature requirements engineering. This was true ten years ago when requirements engineering became an important component of the software development process. It remains true today when the pressure to deliver code on time and on budget is increasing, and the demand for higher quality software also increases. This volume presents perspectives on several current approaches to software requirements. Each chapter addresses a specific problem where the authors summarize their experiences and results to produce well-fit and traceable requirements. Chapters highlight familiar issues with recent results and experiences which are accompanied by chapters describing well-tuned new methods for specific domains. The book is designed for a professional audience, composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. It is also suitable as a secondary text for graduate-level students in computer science and engineering.
