A Multi-Objective, Risk-based Approach for Selecting Software Requirements

Aruan G. Amaral, Gledson Elias

Abstract

In iterative and incremental development approaches, there is great interest in delivering system releases on-budget, but raising stakeholders’ satisfaction as much as possible. In the field of Search Based Software Engineering (SBSE), such a problem is known as the Next Release Problem (NRP), which is handled in existing proposals by reformulating the requirements selection process as an optimization problem solved by metaheuristics, providing a set of recommendations with the highest customers’ satisfactions as well as the lowest development costs. Despite their contributions, most of current proposals do not address software risks, which represent a key aspect that can deeply impact on project cost and stakeholders’ satisfaction. In such a direction, this paper proposes a multi-objective, risk-based approach for the NRP problem, in which a risk analysis is incorporated to estimate the impact of software risks in development cost and stakeholders’ satisfaction. Experimental results reveal the efficiency and practical applicability of the proposed approach.
