Quality requirements are scattered over a requirements specification, thus it
is hard to measure and trace such quality requirements to validate the
specification against stakeholders' needs.
We have already proposed a technique called `spectrum analysis for quality
requirements'' which enables analysts to sort a requirements specification to
measure and track quality requirements in the specification.
However current spectrum analysis largely depends on expertise of each analyst,
thus it takes a lot of efforts to perform the analysis and is hard to reuse
experiences for such analysis.
We introduce domain knowledge called term-characteristic map (TCM) to improve
current spectrum analysis for quality requirements.
Through several experiments, we evaluated the improved spectrum analysis.
