REQUIREMENTS ENGINEERING

With the introduction of new software and systems, a clear definition of requirement is crucial for the success of the project. If the selected solutions supports the company's objectives, then comprehensive system knowledge is required, as well as an exact understanding of the internal workflow and the way users work.

With EXXETA's Expertise in Requirements Engineering (RE), we support you with a successful introduction of new systems into exxisting IT landscapes and also help to coach and train you in establishing discipline of requirement engineering in your company.

Your challenges

In complex information and IT lanscape, the tasks of requirement engineering are becoming increasingly complicated. The determinaton of the requisite requirements is necessary for the cost estimation, project planning and risk assessment. Besides examining the technical aspects, stakeholders must be identified and different interests has to be taken into account. The recognition of yoke business processes is just as crucial as the identification and handling of missing information and communication breaches. In order to ensure the correctness of the scope and method of operation as well as acceptance of the subsequent result, capturing the needs of customers or users for developed systems is equally essential. In order not to jeopardise the success of the project, the challenge is to set up a complete documentation, which is perfectly adapted to the information requirements of the respective users.

We support all stages with our tried-and-tested Requirements Engineering Methodology from the initial data collection and documentation to the actual realization of your software solution.

The EXXETA RE methodology starts off with the Elicitation of requirement sources, taking all relevant aspects for the users of the system into consideration. In doing so, targeted collection techniques are used, in order to ensure a structured process from the very beginning. During the next step, Documentation, the results from the identification phase are documented and refined. For requirements in natural language, this can take place using a blueprint that determines requirements’ syntactic structures. With regard to business processes that are to be realized with the assistance of IT, we make use of tried-and-tested modelling methods such as BPMN or UML. The objective is to always create high quality requirements. The documented requirements are then subjected to a Validation, during which the focus is placed on two questions: “Have we documented the right requirements?” and “Have we documented the requirements correctly?”. The first question relates to the technical content of the requirements, i.e., has the desired system behavior been described correctly by the requirements and does it represent an optimum product specification. The second question relates to adherence with quality criteria for requirements, such as comprehensibility and unambiguousness. The Management of requirements takes place in parallel to the Identification, Documentation and Validation. This is required during the entire RE process and includes activities such as stakeholder management, prioritization of requirements, traceability of requirements, versioning and the administration of changes.
