CTU Software Engineering Processes & Methodologies

User Generated




In the final week, you have met with the customer and provided a real description of the software requirements engineering process from inception through validation, described functional and nonfunctional requirements, and described how you would perform requirements management and engineering, analysis, and development. Use case diagrams have been produced to define the SRSs developed with customer feedback. Customers desire verification and validation of the requirements, traceability and test documentation, therefore, this process was revealed in detail in the previous assignment. Now, it will be your task in this assignment, Appendix A, to do the following:

  • Prove the effectiveness of the agile methods used to development the requirements, documentation, and software by describing the agile approach or activities used for the development
  • Describe the methodology (practices, tools) and techniques (developing use cases) used to develop your final Software Requirements Specification (SRS)

This Appendix A should be added to your final SRS document delivered in Unit 5.

Requirement Management Practices and Plan Antonio Larkin Software Requirements Engineering . Topics of Discussion  IEEE standards used  Introduction and purpose of requirement management within CMMI  Goals and practices used during REQM of the project  Requirement management tools  Use of requirement management to produce metrics  Summary IEEE Standards Used  There are various set of standards as per the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers that were incorporated during the requirement management process.  Some of the standards used include IEEE std. 1233-1998, IEEE std. 830-1998, SEI CMMI.  The reason for choosing to comply with the standards by default was because:  They helped fuel compatibility and interoperability.  Product development would be simplified  As for the client, he/she would be in a position to compare the product with other competing products. IEEE Std. 1233 – 1998  The IEEE standard 1233-1998 is one of the standards which was used during the requirements management process.  This standard addressed conditions for integration of working models, design constraints, and design structure necessities to description.  For example, the test script.  Having identified the necessary requirements, the standard enabled the identification of the necessary characteristics and qualities of those requirements for example performance.  This guide therefore identifies the requirements as system requirements specification. IEEE Std. 830-1998 & SEI CMMI  The IEEE std. 830-1998 defines the subjects and features of a good software requirement specification.  The requirements of software to be developed are hence specified. Having identified the software to be developed(Banking), the standard was crucial for the task.  On the client’s part, the standard enables informed decisions during the selection of in-house and commercial software products.  SEI CMMI, on the other hand, certifies the credibility of our products through assessment against a five process maturity level.  During software requirement management, the characteristics of the effective processes are described.  This will be defined during the test case. Introduction and purpose of requirements management within CMMI  Requirement management is the process of defining, documenting, analyzing, and prioritizing the requirements of the project.  Under our project, this comes in between project elicitation.  While coming up with the requirements management plan, three primary sections are crucial for review:   Introduction of the plan  Management overview of the process and responsibilities  Requirements section. All the requirements processes together manage all the requirements received or generated by the project. (Fernández-Corugedo, J, 2011) Continuation…  The requirements management primarily manages necessities of the project yields and their constituents.  This ensures the configuration between those necessities and the scheme’s plan and work yields.  For example, while covering the system related non-functional requirements as the broader component in the project management, other elements come in such as security, and performance. Goals and practices used during REQM for the project  The primary goal for the project is to minimize the long queues experienced in banking halls and substitute the services digitally for access over mobile devices and laptops.  This involves coming up with a software enabling the sending, and withdrawal of money among other transactional services.  Four broad processes were used during requirement management. They included:  Defining all the requirements  Documenting them  Analyzing the requirements according to their capability and role  Prioritizing them (Yelmo, J, 2011) Continuation…  Dividing the requirements into functional and non-functional was crucial for deciding on instances when scripting was vital and how it would be done.  This would also enable the quick identification of the necessary tools which would be required during implementation. Requirement management tool  Requirement management software are important during specification mainly at major firms.  Such tools include requisite pro, Case spec, DOORs, Open Source RM, and CORE.  For this project, requisite pro would suite best.  This tools systematically improves the creation and maintenance of requirements enabling the building of effective and high-quality software.  It enables planning, eliciting client’s requirements, building use cases, managing and changing the requirements, and transforming requirements into design. (Rausch, A, 2013). Requirement Management to Produce Metrics  Requirement management may indicate the efficiency and quality of the plan.  In this case, process metrics improves the software development.  Special attributes can be used to write requirements thereby increasing the quality of the software.  These attributes are collectively known as specifications.  Traceability is therefore maintained in requirement documents. Summary  Requirement management is crucial in any project development.  Adhering to the standards set by governing bodies e.g. IEEE is crucial to ensure satisfaction of clients and that no violations occur.  During requirement management, identifying the problem, the goal, and the practices required is equally necessary as it’s the core of knowing how to go about the project.  As in this project, the functional and non-functional requirements are identified hence much ease while choosing the resources required.
