Analysis of Online Discussions in Support of Requirements Discovery

Feedback about software applications and services that end-
users express through web-based communication platforms represents
an invaluable knowledge source for diverse software engineering tasks,
including requirements elicitation. Research work on automated analysis
of textual messages in app store reviews, open source software (OSS)
mailing-lists and user forums has been rapidly increasing in the last five

The unit provides methods and techniques for the specification and management of the requirements of complex software systems, following a goal-oriented requirements analysis approach; modelling and measuring the risk of open source adoption; gathering user feedback to support requirements elicitation and evolution.
