Modeling Requirements Elicitation Process for Web Applications

Marian Cristian Mihaescu, Cosmin Stoica, Mihai Mocanu, Bogdan Logofatu



Requirements engineering plays a critical role within a software development process. Studies have revealed a lack of systematic processing of requirements due to high number of activities that need to be accomplished in this phase. There are many reasons for this situation. One of the most difficult tasks is to model requirements elicitation process. This is the first and one of the most important steps from the implications point of view in the nest steps of the development process and in the quality of the obtained software. This paper presents a requirements elicitation technique that has been successfully used in the development process of a web application. The direction of improvements are represented by requirements traceability and their modeling during elicitation phase.
