Abstract

Little contemporary data exists that documents software requirements elicitation, requirements specification, document development, and specification validation practices. An exploratory survey of more than 3,000 software professionals was conducted and nearly 250 responses were obtained. Survey data obtained includes characteristics of projects, practices, organizations, and practitioners related to requirements engineering. Selected results are presented along with interpretations of this data.
