BADD 2016 : Breakout - A Research Based Approach for Eliciting Bus Requirements

In software development projects, usually more than half of the software defects originate from requirements gaps. 

A software application is a characterization of business processes and the success of its development depends on the level of completeness and absence of ambiguities in capturing its behavior.

This presentation describes a research based approach that captures the behavior of a software application using a model based method that not only minimizes the requirements gaps but also optimizes the quality assurance process in both Agile and Waterfall approaches.
