Improving the Definition of Quality Attribute Scenarios by Using Requirements Patterns (SATURN 2009)

April 2009 Presentation
Aldo Dagnino (ABB Corporate Research)

Presentation given at SATURN 2009, which was held in Pittsburgh, PA in May 2009.


Software Engineering Institute



This presentation will provide requirements patterns that can be used to define non-functional requirements, with a good level of detail, precision, and clarity. This presentation assumes that the non-functional requirements are the basis for defining the software quality attributes, which in turn are fundamental for the development of the architecture of the software product. This presentation is motivated by the fact that in the software industry, software engineers seem to have a great deal of difficulty defining clear and precise non-functional requirements.
