Three Aspects of Requirements Engineering
A READ Group Seminar
Prof. Michael Jackson

This event took place on 11th October 2005 at 12:00pm (11:00 GMT)
Knowledge Media Institute, Berrill Building, The Open University, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, MK7 6AA

In this talk I shall briefly remind the participants of the basic context of requirements engineering, and then discuss three particular aspects. One is the span of a requirement: that is, how far the subject matter of one requirement extends in space or time. Another is the relationship between modelling and reality. A major part of the difficulty of building satisfactory software-intensive systems resides here. The third is the well- known principle 'divide and rule', and the conditions for its successful application.
