A communication process for global requirements engineering
Hashmi, Sajid Ibrahim; Ishikawa, Fuyuki; Richardson, Ita
Globally distributed software development teams face problems with software development life cycle phases, as the distributed nature of each of these phases make it even more challenging to communicate between the stakeholders. Global distance can give rise to incomplete requirements handovers which make the situation more difficult. It is important to address this issue as the end product is likely to deliver less business value when such problems arise. In this research, we propose a process to facilitate non-verbal communication among globally distributed requirements engineering teams. The focus of this research is the situation that occurs after requirements are handed to another site. Our proposed process endeavors to ensure that incomplete and conflicting requirements are identified and mitigated.
