Defining quality requirements completely and correctly
is more difficult than defining functional requirements
because stakeholders do not state most of quality requirements
explicitly.We thus propose a method to measure a requirements
specification for identifying the amount of quality requirements
in the specification. We also propose another method to recommend
quality requirements to be defined in such a specification.
We expect stakeholders can identify missing and unnecessary
quality requirements when measured quality requirements are
different from recommended ones. We use a semi-formal language
called X-JRDL to represent requirements specifications
because it is suitable for analyzing quality requirements. We
applied our methods to a requirements specification, and found
our methods contribute to define quality requirements more
completely and correctly.
