Abstract

The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) hosted the Requirements Engineering and Analysis Workshop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on March 12-14, 1991. The intention of the workshop was to focus discussion on issues and activities that could help the Department of Defense (DoD) to deal more effectively with the requirements of mission-critical systems. The SEI workshop built upon work performed previously at the Requirements Engineering and Rapid Prototyping Workshop held by the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) Center for Software Engineering in Eatontown, New Jersey, on November 14-16, 1989. 

The workshop participants were divided into four working groups: Requirements Engineering Process and Products, Requirements Volatility, Requirements Elicitation, and Requirements Engineering Techniques and Tools. A summary of the findings of each working group follows.
