Initiative for Software Requirements Management Best Practice in Embedded Systems and E-Services Organisations

Objective

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.

Work description:
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

Milestones:
M1: Delivery of Project Quality Manual, month 2
M2: Yardsticks definition, month 3
M3: Completion of RE process maturity assessments for all user organisations, month 6
M4: RE System selection completed, month 6
M5: Validation-systems ready, month 9
M6: End of business cases, month 16
M7: Final conference, month 18
