The NASA automated requirements measurement tool: a reconstruction

  title={The NASA automated requirements measurement tool: a reconstruction},
  author={Nathan Carlson and Phillip A. Laplante},
  journal={Innovations in Systems and Software Engineering},
In the late 1990s the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Software Assurance Technology Center (SATC) developed a tool to automatically analyze a requirements document and produce a detailed quality report. The report was based on statistical analysis of word frequencies at various structural levels of the document. The Automated Requirements Measurement (ARM) tool was further enhanced to include additional functionality such as custom definitions of quality indicators inputs… CONTINUE READING
