Transcript

  • 1. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Requirements Change Management
  • 2. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Agenda • Introduction • Requirements Change Management Process • Traceability • Summary
  • 3. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Introduction (1/3) requirements definition specification & design & coding & testing acceptance testing requirements management Requirements management is the process of managing changes to a system’s requirements [Kot98], and it is an important part of requirements engineering.
  • 4. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Introduction (2/3) • It is often the case that more than 50% of a system’s requirements will be modified before it is put into service [Kot98]. • New requirements emerge and existing change due to • errors • increased understanding • change in external circumstances.
  • 5. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Introduction (3/3) Changes to the requirements should be documented and controlled formally. Change management process ensures that • changes are made systematically •similar information is collected for each proposed change •overall analysis is made about the costs, benefits and timing • the requirements document is updated.
  • 6. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Requirements Change Management Process (1/5) requirements change management process • updated user requirements document • change history recording analysing deciding implementing • approved user requirements document • change proposal
  • 7. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Requirements Change Management Process (2/5) Recording a change proposal: • Stakeholders submit proposals for requirements changes using a pre-defined form.
  • 8. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Requirements Change Management Process (3/5) Analysing a change request: • The proposed change is analysed to see • if it is valid. Sometimes stakeholders misunderstand the requirements and suggest unnecessary changes. • how many requirements and system components are affected • how much it would cost, in both time and money, to make the change • what the benefits of the change are.
  • 9. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Requirements Change Management Process (4/5) Deciding on a change request: • Change requests are considered formally by a group or a person who decide whether or not the change should be accepted.
  • 10. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Requirements Change Management Process (5/5) Implementing a change: • Updating the requirements document. • Informing all the necessary people.
  • 11. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Traceability • Requirements cannot be managed effectively without requirements traceability [Kot98]. • Traceability types [Som97] • requirements - sources • requirements - rationale • requirements - requirements • requirements - architecture • requirements - test cases
  • 12. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Summary (1/2) User requirements definition User requirements management Design, coding and system testing Acceptance testing Requirements Engineering Useful and Successful Products
  • 13. SoberIT Software Business and Engineering Institute Summary (2/2) Systematic requirements change management ensures that product development produces useful and succesful systems.
