Title

Making decision in requirement change management

Abstract/Description

Requirement change management a significant activity, which is performed through out the development of the software and even during the maintenance phase. It is the core activity to obtain one of the main objectives of software development, which is to satisfy the evolving needs of the customers. Software requirements are linked and dependent on other requirements and changing one requirement definitely affects interlinked requirements. Impact analysis is the crux of requirement change management which is to obtain with the change of requirements, so that the scope of that change is identified. Traceability is the pre-requisite to acquire proper impact analysis. As requirement change is directly linked with decision making (because when changes occur decisions are to be made), so organizations should have proper decision making and defined requirement change management processes, so the whole procedure can be performed in a defined way.
