Supporting Requirements with Video-Based Analysis
May/June 2006 (vol. 23 no. 3)
pp. 42-44
Marina Jirotka, Oxford University

Requirements engineers often use interviews to discover users' needs. However, there will always be limits to what users can tell them about their work because tricks of the trade, skills, and means of communicating can be nearly impossible to describe. Ethnographies--using video to observe users in their own work environments--can support requirements elicitation.
Index Terms:
requirements elicitation, ethnographies, video
