Controlling Requirements Evolution: An Avionics Case Study

Stuart Anderson, Massimo Felici

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents an empirical investigation of the control of requirements evolution in an avionics safety-critical system. Metrics can be used to manage (e.g., control and predict) requirements evolution. The results point out issues in the use of metrics for controlling requirements evolution in the case study. Moreover, they provide new evidence, which suggests a product line oriented management method for requirements. The empirical analysis supports a number of remarks that are described through the paper.
