About Jane Cleland-Huang

Jane Cleland-Huang is an associate professor at DePaul University in Chicago as well as North American director for the Center of Excellence in Software Traceability. Her research work includes a focus on collaborative requirements engineering processes and software traceability. She has an impressive track record of research publications, and her work has earned her five distinguished-paper awards at highly ranked conferences. She coauthored a paper that was selected as a "top pick" for IEEE Software's 25th anniversary.

As editor of the Requirements column, Jane aims to make requirements and their importance more widely understood by developers, business people, and management. Understanding comes from knowing what requirements means to you and why you should care about it. Jane and her guest columnists will write about their different perspectives on requirements, and explore new areas of software engineering where requirements matter. The focus is on practical and accessible ideas.

GORE, SORE, or What?

by Ian Alexander

Competing schools of thought in both research and industry advocate different approaches to requirements. Each favors one particular kind of artifact, such as scenarios, goals, priorities, and context models. But focusing on any one of these risks failing to discover critical project information that could readily be unearthed by other means. Perhaps a mix-and-match approach that combines requirement methods would be more effective.
