CAPS as a requirements engineering tool
MetadataShow full item record
The process of determining user requirements for software systems is often plagued with uncertainty, ambiguity, and inconsistency. Rapid prototyping offers an iterative approach to requirements engineering to alleviate the problems inherent in the process. CAPS (the Computer Aided Prototyping System) has been built to help software engineers rapidly construct software prototypes of proposed software systems.We describe how CAPS as a prototyping tool helps firm up software requirements through iterative negotiations between customers and designers via examination of executable prototypes.
