A SYSTEMATIC LITERATURE REVIEW OF REQUIREMENTS ENGINEERING IN DISTRIBUTED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENTS

Thaís Ebling, Jorge Luis Nicolas Audy, Rafael Prikladnicki

Abstract

On analyzing the main characteristics of Distributed Software Development (DSD) phenomenon, we can notice that they particularly affect Requirements Engineering (RE). With the evolution of this phenomenon, the result is an increasing in the existent literature. For this reason, in this paper we report from a systematic review of the DSD literature, where we looked for challenges and possible solutions related to RE in DSD environments. We also discuss gaps of this research area, which can be used to guide future researches.
