“[…] It is very helpful to analyse the different dimensions and aspects of the backlog items to get a holistic view of the resulting priorities.”Stefan Meier in Applying IREB RE practices in an agile environment
“Where requirement engineers are a distinct group, more effort will be invested in separating requirements from design and implementation.”Ariè Avnur in A Finite State Machine Model for Requirements Engineering
“Radical constructivism provides a new perspective on the elicitation of requirements.”Chris Rupp in Requirements under construction
The Requirements Engineering Magazine is an independent online magazine, published every four months by IREB.
The Requirements Engineering Magazine shall serve as a platform for the active exchange of professionals on Requirements Engineering (RE). It is cost free in order to motivate as many professionals as possible to read the articles and thus give them the opportunity to expand their range of knowledge. Articles around the RE-topic are contributed by international professionals from the fields of BA and RE. Everybody is welcome to submit articles, may she/he be IREB member or not!
As the Requirements Engineering Magazine provides a global platform for the active exchange on RE, the articles solely reflect the authors’ viewpoints and do not necessarily express the opinion of the IREB; some articles might not represent the official position of IREB.
Requirements Engineers have to be unprejudiced when eliciting requirements. They must not set limits either on themselves or on others in exploring the maximum that is feasible. They have to allow thoughts to flow freely and beyond the limits of imagination – thinking without limits.
Each of you might have already experienced how difficult this is. It is not easy to get away from predetermined thinking patterns, to question known solutions and to enlarge or simply ignore them. You have to overcome doubts and obstacles and develop your creative power. Once you succeed, a dynamic force is unleashed leading to enthusiasm and results which were not imaginable before – which are beyond the mental limit.
With each edition of the Requirements Engineering Magazine we break through our mental limits. The manifold article submissions constantly challenge the editors with new aspects and points of view on Requirements Engineering. The editors must also move away from their familiar views on RE, in order to approach each submission with an open mind. It is not unusual that this leads to discussions with the author and a fruitful exchange for both.
In this manner the RE Magazine becomes more and more an exchange platform for Requirements Engineering, supported by the requirements engineering community.
So, unlimited thanks to our community!
