A deep understanding of the complexity of the requirements model and its dynamics is critical in improving requirements engineering process management. Findings from an action research study an insightful explanation of how the complexity of the requirements model evolves over time. We argue that there are two different types of complexity of the model: the essential and incidental complexities. The essential complexity represents the inherent understanding of the problem space while the… CONTINUE READING
