What Do We Know about Alignment of Requirements Engineering and Software Testing?

Pertti Karhapää, Alireza Haghighatkhah, Markku Oivo
2017 Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering - EASE'17  
Context: The alignment of different software engineering activities for coordinated functioning and optimized product development is of great importance, particularly in industrialscale development.  ...  To support industry in RE and ST alignment, guidelines and tool support are needed. The supporting evidence for claimed benefits is very limited.  ...  RESEARCH METHOD The research method of this study was SMS as explained and introduced by Petersen et al. in [14] for software engineering research.  ...

Requirements Engineering: Best Practice [chapter]

Samuel A. Fricker, Rainer Grau, Adrian Zwingli
2014 Requirements Engineering for Digital Health  
The chapter concludes with recommendations for software projects and future research to improve requirements engineering practice.  ...  However, many of these techniques did not become industrial practice because they were not practicable or ineffective when used in real-world projects.  ...  Whether practice use leads to success or whether good projects select these practices cannot be concluded from these results and needs to be investigated in future research.  ...
