Software Requirement Patterns

When considering the completeness of requirements, scan the set of patterns for
topics to cover—to see if you've missed something, or to suggest something to
add. Secondarily, requirement patterns can also be used after the fact—that is, ...

Learn proven, real-world techniques for specifying software requirements with this practical reference. It details 30 requirement “patterns” offering realistic examples for situation-specific guidance for building effective software requirements. Each pattern explains what a requirement needs to convey, offers potential questions to ask, points out potential pitfalls, suggests extra requirements, and other advice. This book also provides guidance on how to write other kinds of information that belong in a requirements specification, such as assumptions, a glossary, and document history and references, and how to structure a requirements specification. A disturbing proportion of computer systems are judged to be inadequate; many are not even delivered; more are late or over budget. Studies consistently show one of the single biggest causes is poorly defined requirements: not properly defining what a system is for and what it’s supposed to do. Even a modest contribution to improving requirements offers the prospect of saving businesses part of a large sum of wasted investment. This guide emphasizes this important requirement need—determining what a software system needs to do before spending time on development. Expertly written, this book details solutions that have worked in the past, with guidance for modifying patterns to fit individual needs—giving developers the valuable advice they need for building effective software requirements

It is a commonly held belief that athletes, particularly body builders, have greater requirements for dietary protein than sedentary individuals. However, the evidence in support of this contention is controversial. This book is the latest in a series of publications designed to inform both civilian and military scientists and personnel about issues related to nutrition and military service. Among the many other stressors they experience, soldiers face unique nutritional demands during combat. Of particular concern is the role that dietary protein might play in controlling muscle mass and strength, response to injury and infection, and cognitive performance. The first part of the book contains the committee's summary of the workshop, responses to the Army's questions, conclusions, and recommendations. The remainder of the book contains papers contributed by speakers at the workshop on such topics as, the effects of aging and hormones on regulation of muscle mass and function, alterations in protein metabolism due to the stress of injury or infection, the role of individual amino acids, the components of proteins, as neurotransmitters, hormones, and modulators of various physiological processes, and the efficacy and safety considerations associated with dietary supplements aimed at enhancing performance.

In 2009, for the second time in a row, Jena hosted an extraordinary event. In th 2008, Jena celebrated the 450 birthday of the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena with the motto “Lichtgedanken” – “?ashes of brilliance. ” This year, for almost one week, Jena became the center for the pattern recognition research st community of the German-speaking countries in Europe by hosting the 31 Annual Symposium of the Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft fur ¨ Mustererkennung (DAGM). Jena is a special place for this event for several reasons. Firstly, it is the ?rst time that the university of Jena has been selected to host this conference, and it isanopportunitytopresentthecityofJenaaso?eringafascinatingcombination of historic sites, an intellectual past, a delightful countryside,and innovative, - ternationalresearchandindustrywithinThuringia. Second,the conferencetakes place in an environment that has been heavily in?uenced by optics research and industry for more than 150 years. Third, in several schools and departments at the University of Jena, research institutions and companies in the ?elds of p- tern recognition, 3D computer vision, and machine learning play an important role. The university's involvement includes such diverse activities as industrial inspection, medical image processing and analysis, remote sensing, biomedical analysis, and cutting-edge developments in the ?eld of physics, such as the - cent development of the new terahertz imaging technique. Thus, DAGM 2009 was an important event to transfer basic research results to di?erent appli- tions in such areas.

This is the digital version of the printed book (Copyright © 2005). If you develop software without understanding the requirements, you're wasting your time. On the other hand, if a project spends too much time trying to understand the requirements, it will end up late and/or over-budget. And products that are created by such projects can be just as unsuccessful as those that fail to meet the basic requirements. Instead, every company must make a reasonable trade-off between what's required and what time and resources are available. Finding the right balance for your project may depend on many factors, including the corporate culture, the time-to-market pressure, and the criticality of the application. That is why requirements management—gathering requirements, identifying the "right" ones to satisfy, and documenting them—is essential. Just Enough Requirements Management shows you how to discover, prune, and document requirements when you are subjected to tight schedule constraints. You'll apply just enough process to minimize risks while still achieving desired outcomes. You'll determine how many requirements are just enough to satisfy your customers while still meeting your goals for schedule, budget, and resources. If your project has insufficient resources to satisfy all the requirements of your customers, you must read Just Enough Requirements Management.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 20th International Working Conference on Requirements Engineering: Foundation for Software Quality, REFSQ 2014, held in Essen, Germany, in April 2014. The 23 papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 89 submissions. The REFSQ conference is organised as a three-day symposium with two days devoted to scientific papers presentation with a one-day industry track in-between. Both the industry and scientific presentations concern a variety of topics, which shows the liveliness of the requirements engineering domain. These topics are for instance: scalability in RE, communication issues, compliance with law and regulations, RE for self adaptive systems, requirements traceability, new sources of requirements, domain specific RE, Natural Language issues and of course games. 'Games for RE and RE for Games' was the special topic of REFSQ 2014. This is materialized by a plenary session at the conference, and by a keynote given by Catherine Rolland, a serious games expert and project manager at KTM Advance, a French company specialized in serious games.
