About CRE'18

4th Workshop on Continuous Requirements Engineering

Engineering approaches are or should be grounded on sound elaborated systems models, enterprise architectures, ontologies, and information logistics representations. Engineering approaches should also support transparency, reliability, and security in the whole lifecycle of the system. Currently engineering approaches are designed and are mainly applied to large enterprises that have relatively long change cycle times. When the changes are more frequent and higher flexibility is required, it is necessary to adopt continuous engineering approaches; especially during the requirements stage. Continuous requirements engineering is proposed to combine rigid engineering principles with agility, emergence, and spontaneity to support sustainability and viability of systems.

In different ways, smaller scale enterprises managing in turbulent environment also need new approaches, methods and tools to be capable to embrace the growing variety of opportunities and challenges offered by fast changing and hardly predictable environment. In this type of systems continuous requirements engineering also can be a solution if integrated with management and design approaches applicable for smaller scale enterprises.

The challenge of the workshop is to support continuous requirements engineering approaches, methods, models, and tools for multi-scale fast changing enterprises and predictable and unpredictable configurations of enterprise networks. Reports about new ideas and experience reports in this context will be presented and discussed. Also welcomed are reports about continuous requirements engineering approaches that not yet have been applied to continuous engineering but have the potential for that. A cross-pollination of experiences in modeling and requirements management is assumed.

CRE'18 will be held in conjunction with REFSQ 2018.
