Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

[Context & motivation] When large organizations develop systems for large markets, the size and complexity of the work artefacts of requirements engineering impose critical challenges. [Problem] This paper presents an industrial case study with the goal to increase our understanding of large-scale requirements engineering practice. We focus on a senior requirements engineering role at our case company, called requirements architect, responsible for quality and coordination of large requirements repositories. [Results] Based on interviews with 7 requirements architects, we present their tasks and views on architecture quality. [Contribution] Our results imply further research opportunities in large-scale requirements engineering.
