Market-driven requirements engineering processes for software products - a report on current practices

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding

Abstract

This paper reports on some preliminary results
from the first stage of an interview survey, focusing
on current practices and challenges in market-driven
RE. The interviews are analysed based on the
characteristics of market-driven RE presented in the
literature.
The interviews correspond largely with the
literature. Identified discrepancies compared with
the literature concerns the time-to-market attribute
and documentation of requirements. Two major
groupings among the participating companies were
found. The RE processes of one of these groupings
are focused on facilitating the activities fundamental
in market-driven RE, e.g. the release planning
activity, while the other is more document-driven.
The results of the interviews also include some ideas
on how market-driven RE activities may be
performed.
