Abstract

There is little empirical data available on actual practices of software professionals for software requirements elicitation, development of the requirements specification documents and validation of the specification. An exploratory survey of several hundred software and systems practioners was conducted and the results from 194 respondents are analyzed. Several surprising results emerged regarding the pervasiveness of object-oriented and formal methodologies as well as the perceived real value of various approaches.
