3 The importance of RE Publications reveal that software projects still fail or have cost and/or time overruns Numerous studies show that about 60% of the errors of system development projects originate in the RE stage. Effort to fix a requirement defect: 3 testing stage up to 100 times higher programing stage up to 20 times higher RE stage x

4 Requirements Engineering A subject area with a long tradition 4 20 th IEEE Requirements Engineering Conference – Chicago th REFSQ conference th ReConf 2013 in Munich with over 400 participants But...

5 Requirements Engineering Is it really well established? 5 You are the Protagonists! Protagonists OpenMinds Chasm No, because… Because… Because… Ill run amok if… CloseMinds Antagonists Yes, but… But…If… Source: Prof. Dr. Gunter Dueck, ReConf 2013

6 Requirements Engineering Time to overcome the chasm! 6 Requirements Engineering is getting started Number of attendees in conferences increase Number of certified professionals is growing fast The profession Requirements Engineer has been officially acknowledged in the first country (Switzerland) Increase efforts by setting quality standards improving the application of RE demonstrating the value of RE

7 Requirements Engineering The problem 7 Customers, suppliers and development partners talk past each other when defining requirements Incomplete Requirements Ambiguous Requirements Missing common understanding of Requirements Different prioritization of Requirements Conflicts between project partners Time and cost overruns Missing, wrong or gold plated functionality Consequences (incomplete)

8 Requirements Engineering Certification – How does it help? 8 Why not just Training? Training Provides the fundament for Know-How acquisition Is a recognized form of qualification Is part of employee motivation Certification Common definition of terminology to improve communication and Know-How transfer Provides an international recognized fundament for training Training Providers align their trainings to a standard – the syllabus of the certificate Motivates professionals to improve their skills Motivates companies to invest in training Offers a possibility to companies to demonstrate their expertise

9 Good certification gives profession prestige in IT industry eyes 9 (23) Example: testing profession ISEB CTFL (British) introduced 1999 ISTQB (international) started 2002 Now ISTQB has issued more than certificates worldwide Got 48 Member Boards The uderstanding and prestige of testing has grown considerably! In Poland: approximately 6000 certificates And RE is more important than testing…
