Evaluating the Effectiveness of Using Catalogues to Elicit Non-Functional Requirements
{ Thu, 29 Nov 2007, 16h00 }

By: Luis Cysneiros  [ show info ]

Non-Functional Requirements (NFR) are subjective, interactive and relative, thus realizing the need for particular NFR is by itself a challenge. Furthermore understanding what the software must implement in order to cope with these needs may prove to be an even more challenging task. One way of addressing the need for help on NFR elicitation is the use of catalogues. However, it is not clear how effective it is to use them. This work investigates it through an empirical study where different teams will model the same problem. We experimented for two different modeling techniques, i* Framework and UML. For each technique two teams used catalogues with a systematic method, another two teams used catalogs in an ad hoc manner and yet another two teams did not use catalogues. We show at the end of this work that teams using catalogues performed significantly better.
