Conference Talk: Dr. Amir Tomer on “Extracting Quality Scenarios from Functional Scenarios”

poster14This week at the Twentieth International Conference of the Israel Society for Quality in Tel-Aviv, Dr. Amir Tomer gave a talk about “Extracting Quality Scenarios from Functional Scenarios”.

Title: Extracting Quality Scenarios from Functional Scenarios


Requirements specifications usually focus on the functional requirements of the system, whereas the non-functional requirements (aka Quality Attributes) are defined generally, vaguely or tacitly. This talk introduces an approach to reveal quality attributes within structured functional scenarios (in Use-Case specifications) and defining them as quality scenarios which then are added to the overall system functionality. The expansion of the scenarios also provides a basis for adapting the software architecture to the entire system requirements.
