Layered Approach for Performance Requirements Elicitation

Authors: A. Ananda Rao, Gopichand Merugu


Elicitation of performance requirements is important for successful development and deployment of the software product. The acceptance of the software product by the customer depends on the performance requirements which are incorporated in the software. For this, we need to elicit all the performance requirements required by all stakeholders. In the literature not many approaches are available for this purpose. Hence, we have proposed a four layered elicitation approach for identification of performance requirements. The proposed layered approach has many advantages over non-layered approach. As part of this approach some rules are also proposed to be used in each layer. The approach is applied successfully on two case studies.  The identified performance requirements are validated using a check list and in addition the completeness of the identified performance requirements is computed using a metric.
