Introducing a new browser-based tool supporting both goal-oriented requirements modeling and structured creativity techniques

Analysis of Feature Models Using Alloy: A Survey

Feature Models (FMs) are a mechanism to model variability among a family of closely related software

Non-Functional Requirements in MDD: An Ongoing Industrial Survey

Very few MDD approaches have been reported to deal with NFRs (though they should). To better understand the current practices we have initiated the NFR4MDD project, a multi-national empirical study, based on interviews with companies working on MDD projects.

Dealing with Non-Functional Requirements in Model-Driven Development

The impact of non-functional requirements (NFRs) over software systems has been widely documented but MDD processes typically ignore them. Here we investigate why and propose a possible solution.

Best modeling notation for Requirements Engineering (III) – all material online

We have commented before the competition to choose the best notation the Best Modeling Notation for Requirements Engineering held as part of the RE'09 Conference (see this post FOR the competition description AND this other post FOR a summary OF the results).

Integrating MDD with Goal-oriented Requirements Engineering methods

During my 2-YEAR postdoc IN Toronto, I did SOME WORK WITH Eric Yu about the integration OF GORE (Goal-Oriented Requirements Engineering) AND model-driven development methods.

Competition: Best modeling notation for Requirements Engineering (II)

Some time ago we talked about a competition to find the Best Modeling Notation for Requirements Engineering held as part of the RE'09 Conference. AS you ALL know, there IS a huge NUMBER OF different notations/approaches FOR modeling stakeholders' requirements such as: plain text specifications, structured text templates, goal-oriented requirement approaches (e.g.

Best modeling notation for Requirements Engineering – Competition at RE’09

There is a huge number of different notations/approaches for modeling stakeholders' requirements such AS: plain text specifications, structured text templates, goal-oriented requirement approaches (e.g.
