A Goal-Based Framework for Contextual Requirements Modeling and Analysis

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Requirements Engineering (RE) research often ignores, or presumes a uniform nature of the context in which the system operates. This assumption is no longer valid in emerging computing paradigms, such as ambient, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, where it is essential to monitor and adapt to an inherently varying context. Besides influencing the software, context may influence stakeholders' goals and their choices to meet them. In this paper, the authors propose a goal-oriented RE modeling and reasoning framework for systems operating in varying contexts.
