Abstract: Requirements are input for the process of building software. Depending on the development methodology, they are usually classified into several subclasses of requirements. Traditional approaches distinguish between functional and non-functional requirements and the modern goal-based approaches use hard-goals and soft-goals to describe requirements. While non-functional requirements are known also as quality requirements, neither hard-goals nor soft-goals are equivalent to quality requirements. Due to the abstractness of quality requirements, they are usually described as soft-goals but soft-goals are not necessarily quality requirements. In this paper, we propose a way to clear the problematic ambiguity between soft-goals and quality requirements in goal-based context. We try to reposition the notion of quality requirement in the relations to hard-goals and soft-goals. This allows us to decompose a soft-goal into a set of hard-goals (required functions) and quality requirements (requi red qualities of function). The immediate applications of this analysis are quality-aware development methodologies for multi-agent systems among which QTropos is an example. (More)
