This subject is integrated into the module corresponding to the Specific Technology identified in the syllabus as Software Engineering, and it is the foundation and complement of all the subjects of such Specific Technology, and especially of the following:
• Software design.
• Software Engineering Processes.
• Quality of Software Systems.
The competences acquired with this subject are fundamental for the profession of Computer Science Engineer. Requirements engineering is an activity on which the quality of the information systems developed by professionals depends to a great extent, since it provides the basis for the needs of the new systems to be developed. It is demonstrated that bad management in the main requirements engineering processes (elicitation, documentation, negotiation and validation of requirements) causes great damage, mainly in economic terms, image, delays and quality, although in many cases, it also impacts on losses of human lives.
|INS01||Analysis, synthesis, and assessment skills.|
|INS02||Organising and planning skills.|
|INS03||Ability to manage information and data.|
|INS04||Problem solving skills by the application of engineering techniques.|
|INS05||Argumentative skills to logically justify and explain decisions and opinions.|
|IS02||Ability to assess the user's needs and specify those software requirements so as to comply with such needs, combining goals which may originally be in conflict, throughout the search for acceptable compromise within the budget limits, time possibilities, and the availability of developed systems and organisations.|
|PER01||Team work abilities.|
|PER02||Ability to work in multidisciplinary teams.|
|PER04||Interpersonal relationship skills.|
|PER05||Acknowledgement of human diversity, equal rights, and cultural variety.|
|SIS04||Adaptation to new scenarios.|
|SIS08||Initiative and entrepreneurial abilities.|
|SIS09||Care for quality.|
|Course learning outcomes|
|Knowledge and understanding of the application of tools and methods for the management of requirements of software.|
|Knowledge of and experience in applying the techniques of engineering requirements software to obtain, analyze, model, specify and validate requirements software and broad knowledge of the main notations for modeling.|
In the lab sessions, it is planned to practice with several requirements management tools, acquire skills in their use and integration with other tools used for analyzing and designing information systems, and several case studies will be proposed on which to work with the tools.
