Abstract
The process of selecting requirements for a release of a software product is challenging as the decision-making is based on uncertain predictions of issues such as market value and development cost. This paper presents a method aimed at supporting software product development organisations in the identification of process improvement proposals to increase requirements selection quality. The method is based on an in-depth analysis of requirements selection decision outcomes after the release has been launched to the market and is in use by customers. The method is validated in a case study involving real requirements and industrial requirements engineering experts. The case study resulted in a number of process improvement areas relevant to...

The case study resulted in a number of process improvement areas relevant to the specific organisation and the method was considered promising by the participating experts. (Less)
