A lightweight technique for assessing risks in requirements analysis

By Kenneth Duncan Boness, A. Finkelstein and Rachel Harrison


A simple and practical technique for assessing the risks, that is, the potential for error, and consequent loss, in software system development, acquired during a requirements engineering phase is described. The technique uses a goal-based requirements analysis as a framework to identify and rate a set of key issues in order to arrive at estimates of the feasibility and adequacy of the requirements. The technique is illustrated and how it has been applied to a real systems development project is shown. How problems in this project could have been identified earlier is shown,\ud thereby avoiding costly additional work and unhappy users.\u
