Jerzy Nawrocki, Mirosław Ochodek, Jakub Jurkiewicz, Sylwia Kopczyńska, and Bartosz Alchimowicz (2014)

In: SOFSEM 2014: Theory and Practice of Computer Science, ed. by Geffert, Viliam and Preneel, Bart and Rovan, Branislav and Štuller, Július and Tjoa, AMin, vol. 8327, pp. 40-51, Springer. Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Agile methodologies have impact not only on coding,but also on requirements engineering activities. In the paper agile requirements engineering is examined from the research point of view. It is claimed that use cases are a better tool for requirements description than user stories as they allow zooming through abstraction levels, can be reused for user manual generation, and when used properly can provide quite good effort estimates. Moreover, as it follows from recent research, parts of use cases (namely event descriptions) can be generated in an automatic way. Also the approach to non-functional requirements can be different. Our experience shows that they can be elicited very fast and can be quite stable.

Supporting only the best, so that they can become even better
