31 GESSI Software Engineering Research Group – DesCOTS-SL: Formalization of Requirements Which aspects do I have to consider to state my requirements? RQ1 = I would like to have my references classified into three databases (research, teaching, home). RQ2 = I would like to capture references from the digital bibliographic databases to which I have access. RQ3 = I would like to have interoperability with my word processor and to have a copy of my reference databases in my PDA.

32 GESSI Software Engineering Research Group – DesCOTS-SL: Formalization of Requirements RQ1 = I would like to have my references classified into three databases (research, teaching, home). RQ2 = I would like to capture references from the digital bibliographic databases to which I have access. RQ3 = I would like to have interoperability with my word processor and to have a copy of my reference databases in my PDA. Formalized RQ2 = ("ISI filter" in Predefined Import Filters) or Adding Import Filters = TRUE Formalized RQ1 = Number of Libraries > 3 Formalized RQ3 = ("Open Office Word" in Word Processors Interoperability) and Synchronizing with PDAs = TRUE

41 GESSI Software Engineering Research Group – The DesCOTS System Taxonomy Quality Models Users DesCOTS-AD Domain Expert COTS Provider or Domain Expert Administrator DesCOTS-QM DesCOTS-EV Requirements COTS Consumer DesCOTS-SL I manage the Taxonomy I validate the Quality Models I add users to the system I construct the Quality Model of a domain I evaluate Products I define requirements in a selection project I select and negotiate until I find the desired products Evaluations

42 GESSI Software Engineering Research Group – Current Work We are improving the usability of the formal definition of requirements. We are improving the reusability of metrics in quality models, by developing a general metrics manager for QM. We are filling QM and EV of data  E-learning Tools  Anti-virus Tools  Web Editors
