Naming the Pain in Requirements Engineering: Comparing Practices in Brazil and Germany

Daniel Mendez Fernandez, Stefan Wagner, Marcos Kalinowski, Andre Schekelmann, Ahmet Tuzcu, Tayana Conte, Rodrigo Spinola, Rafael Prikladnicki
2015 IEEE Software  
As part of the Naming the Pain in Requirements Engineering (NaPiRE) initiative, researchers compared problems that companies in Brazil and Germany encountered during requirements engineering (RE).  ...  The key takeaway was that in RE, human interaction is necessary for eliciting and specifying high-quality requirements, regardless of country, project type, or company size.  ...  NaPiRE constitutes a globally distributed family of surveys on the state of RE practices including problems practitioners experience in RE as well as their causes and effects [4] .  ...
