Quantifying non-functional requirements: A process oriented approach

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In this work, we propose a framework for quantifying non-functional requirements (NFRs). This framework uses quality characteristics of the execution domain, application domain and component architectures to refine qualitative requirements into quantifiable ones. Conflicts are resolved during the refinement process and more concrete non-functional requirements are produced.
