dc.description.abstractThe importance of a well-formulated set of software requirements contributing to a successful software development effort has been underscored in recent times. However, the software industry still faces a dearth of process models and artifacts populating the requirements generation process. Of those that do exist, they are often disconnected and narrowly focused, providing little structure to the requirement generation phase. Current methodologies advocate useful guidelines, but do not enforce them. To address these concerns, we introduce the â Synergistic Approach to Software Requirements Generationâ â an approach composed of two components â a model and an interactive tool implementing the model. The first component is the Synergistic Requirements Generation Model (SRGM). The SRGM is complete with detailed processes spanning the entire software requirements generation phase. These processes have been identified and decomposed to low-level activities with the intent to improve clarity and understanding. The second component entails the An Interactive Tool for modeling the SRGM (itSRGM) codifying the structure dictated by the model. The tool enforces guidelines and provides visual representations of the progression of activities involved in the requirements generation process.en_US
