Involving End Users in Distributed Requirements Engineering [chapter]

Steffen Lohmann, Jürgen Ziegler, Philipp Heim
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Active involvement of end users in the development of interactive systems is both highly recommended and highly challenging.  ...  This is particularly true in settings where the requirements of a large number of geographically distributed users have to be taken into account.  ...  Against the background of DPD, we are working on methods and tools that support end user participation in distributed requirements engineering within the SoftWiki project [13] .  ...

A QoS Configuration System for Distributed Applications [chapter]

Alan Smith, Andrew Grace
1997 Building QoS into Distributed Systems  
Such applications tend to require user level knowledge of low-level technical parameters and an appreciation of system heterogeneity issues, rather than simply stating what service they require.  ...  The range of distributed applications has increased dramatically over recent years, fuelled in particular by the growth of the Internet and other Local Area and Wide Area Networks.  ...  Each end-system is fully involved in the configuration of a service by providing resource configuration information to a service, satisfying the principle of end-toend systems design [2] .  ...

Using Mobile RE Tools to Give End-Users Their Own Voice

Norbert Seyff, Florian Graf, Neil Maiden
2010 2010 18th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference  
However, end-user involvement in software engineering is still an open-ended topic.  ...  In this paper, we present a framework of end-user involvement in requirements elicitation which motivates our research.  ...  End-user involvement is particularly relevant in early software engineering activities such as requirements engineering (RE).  ...

Requirements Elicitation in International Research Projects

Michael Przybilski
2006 Americas Conference on Information Systems  
These projects also have to deal with the elicitation of end-user requirements.  ...  The elicitation of end-user requirements is primarily focusing on the industry, where companies endeavor to discover and satisfy their customer' s requirements.  ...  We believe that its application will significantly benefit the project and result in a set of well defined and clearly understood requirements, as well as their motivation.  ...
