- Requirements gathering and managing, release scoping, and decisions related to software products are major challenges in today’s software industry.
- Around these challenges a symposium is organized on Software Product Management and its relation to Method Engineering.
- Four speakers will present their vision on the topic.

presentation Professor SaekiApplying A Method Engineering Technique to Security Requirements Elicitation
The elicitation of security requirements (SRs) is a crucial issue to develop secure information systems of high quality. Although we have several requirements elicitation methods, most of them do not provide sufficient supports to identify security threats, security objectives and security functions. Our proposed technique is to assemble through Common Criteria two types of elicitation methods; one is any existing functional requirements elicitation method and the other is a typical method for eliciting security functional requirements so that we can have a powerful method.
presentation Professor HarmsenKnowledge Management of Global Work
The importance of knowledge as a key enterprise asset is still increasing. In our networked, "flat" world, knowledge management seems to be easier than ever. Web technology and other infrastructural facilities enable us to convey data, information and knowledge in split-seconds around the globe. Still, global companies are struggling with knowledge management. Globally distributed outsourcing arrangements often fail due to miscommunication, cultural barriers and high expectations. This presentation outlines the latest developments in knowledge management of global work, both from a process, a people and a technology view. Method Engineering principles are used to construct a framework that supports organizations in organizing their globally distributed knowledge, with the distance factor playing a key role.
presentation Professor RegnellQuality performance (QUPER) model - Supporting Roadmapping of Quality Requirements
QUPER (Quality performance) helps with estimating cost and benefit of non-functional requirements. While functional requirements are scoped in release plans, quality aspects must also be considered in order to balance the market expectations and opportunities with costs of development. QUPER makes roadmapping of quality aspects more explicit. Assessment and prioritisation is supported by a simple and yet comprehensive model based on quality breakpoints and cost barriers. QUPER model experiences from deployment at Sony Ericsson are provided.
presentation Inge van de WeerdAdvancing in Software Product Management: An Incremental Method Engineering Approach
The software business has made a shift from developing software for one customer to developing standard software for an entire market. This shift from customized software to product software brings new challenges, especially concerning the processes for managing the product; the domain of Software Product Management (SPM). In this presentation an approach on how to address a company’s maturity of product management processes is sketched.
