QUALITY MEASUREMENT MODEL FOR REQUIREMENTS ENGINEERING FLOSS TOOLS

María Pérez, Edumilis Méndez, Kenyer Dominguez, Luis E. Mendoza

Abstract

The goal of delivering a suitable or quality software product increases the properly definition of system requirements. Requirements Engineering (RE) is the process of discovering, refining, modeling and specifying software requirements. In addition to the trend of using Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) tools, we should consider their strengths and weaknesses towards in the light of a suitable RE. This article is aimed at proposing a quality measurement model for RE FLOSS tools and supporting their selection process. Characteristics selected for its evaluation include Functionality, Maintainability and Usability. This model was applied to four FLOSS tool and assessed for completeness, accuracy and relevance to establish which FLOSS tools support RE, either totally or partially, thus making it useful for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.
