[Context and motivation] Software Requirement Patterns (SRP) are a type of artifact that may be used during requirements elicitation and that also impact positively in other activities like documentation and validation. In our preliminary experiences at the CITI-CPRHT department, SRP show a great percentage of reuse for the non-functional requirements… (More)
Software requirement reuse strategies are necessary to capitalize and reuse knowledge in the requirements engineering phase. The PABRE framework is designed to support requirement reuse through the use of software requirement patterns. It consists of a meta-model that describes the main concepts around the notion of pattern; a method to conduct the… (More)
Context and motivation: Multiple proposals exist that propose the adoption of reuse practices during requirements engineering processes. Ques-tion/problem: Which is the current level of adoption of these practices in organiza-tions? Principal ideas/results: In this paper we present the preliminary results of a survey initiated at REFSQ'13 that addresses… (More)
— Software requirement patterns have been proposed as an artifact for fostering requirements reuse. In this paper we present PABRE-Man, a software subsystem aimed at managing a catalogue of patterns ready to be applied in requirements engineering projects.
Software requirement patterns have been proposed as an artifact for fostering requirements reuse. When we define these patterns for the functional part of a software system, we realize that most of patterns are specific of a software domain. This paper presents and analyzes a catalogue of functional software requirement patterns for the domain of content… (More)
— Software Requirement Patterns (SRP) have been proposed as an artifact for fostering requirements reuse. PABRE is a framework that promotes the use of SRP as a means for requirements elicitation, validation and documentation in the context of IT procurement projects. In this paper, we present a catalogue of non-technical SRP included in the framework and… (More)
—Software requirement patterns have been proposed as a type of artifact for fostering requirements reuse. In this paper, we present PABRE-Proj, a tool aimed at supporting requirements elicitation and specification.
Security Patterns: A Collection of Constraints to describe Regulatory Security Requirements " (summarized by Richa Sharma) (30m) [WW] Richa Sharma and K.K. Biswas, " Using Norm Analysis Pattern for Automated Requirements Validation " (summarized by Yang Li)
The final quality of software products and services depends on the requirements stated in the Software Requirements Specification (SRS). However, some problems like ambiguity, incompleteness and inconsistency, have been reported in the writing of SRS, especially when natural language is used. Requirements reuse has been proposed as a key asset for… (More)
1 Introduction With increasing connectivity and communication between highly-automated systems, systems become more context-dependent and allow for online adaptation at runtime. There are two classes of such systems: Self-Adaptive Systems (SAS) and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). While the term " self-adaptive " typically refers to any kind of system which… (More)
