  • Abstract Bad requirements quality can cause expensive consequences during the software development lifecycle, especially if iterations are long and feedback comes late. [...] Key Method To evaluate the benefits and limitations, we define Requirements Smells, realize our concepts for a smell detection in a prototype called Smella and apply Smella in a series of cases provided by three industrial and a university context. The automatic detection yields an average precision of 59% at an average recall of 82% with…Expand Abstract
