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.
