The main objective of the IMPRESSION project is to demonstrate the benefits of best practice requirements management in software development for embedded systems & systems for e-business and e-services.
This is proposed to be achieved by employing well-founded & established OE but insufficiently deployed in industry OE requirement engineering (RE) methods, techniques and tools in order to improve the practice of early requirements capturing & validation through a number of controlled, limited & well-focused experiments carried out in 9 organisations.
The benefits of implementing a RE Best Practice action will be quantified using business oriented Key Performance Indicators, in terms of time to market, reduced maintenance cost, improved quality, and increased competitivenes.
The project workplan is deployed to ensure:
co-ordination of all activities towards employing well-founded & established, but insufficiently deployed, requirement engineering (RE) methods, techniques & tools to improve early requirements capturing;
validation through controlled, limited & well-focused experiments;
continuous interaction between development, dissemination & exploitation & project reviewing activities;
maintaining users involved throughout the project for continuous evaluation & market orietation.
The workplan is organised in the following workpackages:
WP1 - Project startup establishes the project baseline
WP2 - Implement Systematic Performance Monitoring
WP3 - Requirements Maturity Assessment
WP4 - RE techniques & tools Selection
WP5 - Uers Training
WP6 - Pilots Settings Configuration & Implementation
WP7 - Operating Pilots/Measurement & evaluation
WP8 - Dissemination of results
WP9 - Project management
