Important properties for requirements reuse tools

by Thorstensson, Eleonor

Abstract (Summary)
Requirements reuse is based upon the idea that it is possible to reuse requirements from previous software development projects. Requirements reuse leads to efficiency and quality gains in the beginning of the development process. One of the obstacles for requirements reuse is that there is a lack of appropriate tools for it. This work approaches this hinder by identifying properties that are important, that is, that the properties represent something that has so much influence that it should be in a requirements reuse tool. These identified properties may then guide the development when building requirements reuse tools.In order to find the properties this work is conducted as a literature study where both tool-specific and non-tool specific articles were searched in order to elicitate the properties. The work focuses on properties present in both tool-specific and non-tool specific articles. This makes the result more reliable since two different sources have identified them. 18 verified properties were identified through this work.
