Abstract

The research shows role of requirement management as a CMMI process area in requirement engineering (a phase of software engineering). Requirement engineering (RE) activity consists of several activities like requirement elicitation by feasibility studies, requirement analysis, requirement validation and requirement management. While performing RE, recognized formal standards should follow like CMMI, ISO etc. Proposed work helps in RE process by acquiring CMMI requirement management process area at level 2. There is confusion in the minds of software personnel between the requirements management process area in CMMI and manage requirements activity in the requirement engineering. So they don't consider requirement management process area as development improvement approach, they think that we don't need anything which requires explicit methods to apply on existing process. Mistake leads to inefficient requirement engineering. The study gives an idea about importance of requirement management while gathering, analyzing and implementing the requirements which are given by the stakeholders. Sometimes stakeholders don't know about their actual requirements and due to this, misunderstanding takes place which brings dissatisfaction of stakeholders and ultimately results poor reputation of organizations.
