Proceedings IEEE Joint International Conference on Requirements Engineering (2002)
Sept. 9, 2002 to Sept. 13, 2002
Simon Hardiman , CARSA
<p>CARSA?s presentation aims to convey the ongoing achievements of the REDEST project (EC funded). REDEST encompasses 14 independent SME experiments with new requirements gathering techniques.</p> <p>Project structure — 3 groups of SME experiments (Spanish, German, Hungarian), Local Coordinators (CARSA - Spain, ATB — Germany, MTA-SZTAKI - Hungary), & Technical Support (SQS — Spain).</p> <p>Each SME is developing and implementing their own innovative requirements engineering (RE) techniques into a baseline project. The SMEs design, manufacture and market their own equipment, and all possess different levels of RE experience and knowledge (very basic to skilled).</p> <p>The challenge of this project is not just to advance the technical capabilities of each SME through experimentation, but to connect 14 independent experiments, nurture experience-sharing, and tackle related issues such as organisational obstacles, communication, user involvement, etc. Aside from the technical, RE has a very definite human angle. My presentation will attempt to convey our efforts in this area.</p>
