Defining quality requirements enough is more difficult than defining functional
requirements because stakeholders do not state most of quality requirements
A method to analyze a requirements specification for identifying the amount of
quality requirements in the specification has thus already proposed.
However, the method requires human decisions a lot because the method depends
only on the occurrences of terms in a specification.
An analyst sometimes incorrectly analyzes a specification by using this method.
We thus propose an improved method by using analyses records of systems similar
to a system to be analyzed.
We also developed a supporting tool to enact our method.
We expect such analyses records help an analyst to make or skip decision during
the method, and the result becomes more correct than before.
% We applied our method to several requirements specifications, and found our
method contribute to making the result more correct than before without a lot
of human effort.
