Predicting Requirements Changes by Focusing on the Social Relations

Nakatani, T. and Tsumaki, T.

    Software requirements are changed by various factors. Stakeholders that are analysed in traditional requirements engineering are mainly requesters or decision makers with regard to the requirements specifications. Such stakeholders are selected as intentional actors in the i* framework. The novel point of this paper is that we focus on the world of parties who are the environmental factors of the requirements of the intentional actors. Our purpose is to propose a method to predict requirements changes by focusing on the social relations. In this paper, we present our method and evaluate its effectiveness through a simulation of requirements changes.
