Final Thesis: Validating Requirements Specification Using Surveys

Abstract: The quality of the software requirements is vital to a project’s success, and the means of assessing the software requirements specifications quality are of high importance. This thesis presents a novel method of validation large requirements specifications using surveys. We developed a detailed method description, sketching a draft at the beginning of the research and constantly improving it after each method application on different industrial projects at Siemens AG. Moreover, the results were compared with the linguistic analysis of ambiguity indicators that present in the requirements and with the expert assessment on the requirements clearness. The result of method application is the metric, which shows the portion of non ambiguous requirements in the software requirements specification under study.
