In complex, multiproject environments, communication is the key to successful requirements engineering. An information model helps with this problem by capturing stakeholders? documents and responsibilities during requirements engineering. The responsibilities determine authorship, reviewers, approval, and change propagation of and within the documents. The information model effectively and practically ensures that stakeholders of dependent projects are mutually aware of their most critical communication needs. As an example, the authors present the information model developed at Nokia Smart Traffic Products and show how they defined it in a two-day workshop.
