Traceability-Why Do It? [chapter]

Gilbert Regan, Fergal McCaffery, Kevin McDaid, Derek Flood
2012 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
Given the importance of traceability in the regulated domain of safety critical software, the paper compares the motivations and benefits for organizations operating inside and outside of this domain.  ...  Finally, based on an analysis of the disparate case studies, the paper re-assesses the value of traceability motivators for more widespread adoption by firms outside of the safety critical sector.  ...  Acknowledgements This research is supported by the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Stokes Lectureship Programme, grant number 07/SK/I1299, the SFI Principal Investigator Programme, grant number 08/IN.1  ...

Using Model-Driven Views and Trace Links to Relate Requirements and Architecture: A Case Study [chapter]

Huy Tran, Ta'id Holmes, Uwe Zdun, Schahram Dustdar
2011 Relating Software Requirements and Architectures  
As a result, several compliance concerns are realized on a per-case basis, leading to ad hoc, handcrafted solutions for each specific law, regulation, and standard that a system must comply with.  ...  Compliance in service-oriented architectures (SOA) means in general complying with laws and regulations applying to a distributed software system.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for providing constructive, insightful comments that greatly help to improve this chapter.  ...

Demirors, Gencel, Tarhan
2003 Proceedings of the 20th IEEE Instrumentation Technology Conference (Cat No 03CH37412) EURMIC-03  
In this study, an approach for requirements elicitation based on business processes is investigated.  ...  The acquirer needs to understand the domain, needs, and constraints of the project clearly in order to make realistic size and effort estimates, and to have a solid foundation for defining contract requirements  ...  This study took some time due to confusion of business processes with system functions by domain experts, and constituted the foundation for more detailed business process analysis.  ...
