Environment Modeling-Based Requirements Engineering for Software Intensive Systems provides a new and promising approach for engineering the requirements of software-intensive systems, presenting a systematic, promising approach to identifying, clarifying, modeling, deriving, and validating the requirements of software-intensive systems from well-modeled environment simulations. In addition, the book presents a new view of software capability, i.e. the effect-based software capability in terms of environment modeling.
- Provides novel and systematic methodologies for engineering the requirements of software-intensive systems
- Describes ontologies and easily-understandable notations for modeling software-intensive systems
- Analyzes the functional and non-functional requirements based on the properties of the software surroundings
- Provides an essential, practical guide and formalization tools for the task of identifying the requirements of software-intensive systems
- Gives system analysts and requirements engineers insight into how to recognize and structure the problems of developing software-intensive systems
