Templates for textual use cases of software product lines: results from a systematic mapping study and a controlled experiment

Ismayle S Santos, Rossana MC Andrade, Pedro A Santos Neto
2015 Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development  
Use case templates can be used to describe functional requirements of a Software Product Line.  ...  The results of this experiment show that the specification of variabilities in the steps' numeric identifiers of the textual use cases is better to the use case understanding than the other approaches  ...  Furthermore, in this template there is an attribute for specifying which domain of the product line it is and another one that designates which product member the use case is specified for.  ...

Requirements Evolution From Process to Product Oriented Management [chapter]

Stuart Anderson, Massimo Felici
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper shows empirical investigations of two industrial case studies. The results point out evolutionary product features and identify an Empirical Framework to analysing Requirements Evolution.  ...  The resulting scenario then is a collection of general methodologies, which do not take into account product features that may enhance our ability in monitoring and controlling Requirements Evolution.  ...  We thank the industrial partners, who provided the case studies. Due to the confidentiality agreement with the industrial partners we cannot provide more detailed information.  ...
