Context is a significant factor in deciding the set of requirements relevant to a system (i.e., software product construction), the alternatives the system can adopt to satisfy these requirements, and the quality assessment of each alternative. By context we mean the conditions in the operating environment of an system that influences how the system should behave in different situations. However, the relationship between context and requirements can be challenging to capture and analyze… CONTINUE READING
