Requirements engineering a good practice guide by Ian Sommerville ( Book )
28 editions published between 1977 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Requirements engineering is the process of discovering, documenting and managing the requirements for a computer-based system. The goal of requirements engineering is to produce a set of system requirements which, as far as possible, is complete, consistent, relevant and reflects what the customer actually wants. Although this ideal is probably unattainable, the use of a systematic approach based on engineering principles leads to better requirements than the informal approach which is still commonly used." "This book presents a set of guidelines which reflect the best practice in requirements engineering. Based on the authors' experience in research and in software and systems development, these guidelines explain in an easy-to-understand way how you can improve your requirements engineering processes. The guidelines are applicable for any type of application and, in general, apply to both systems and software engineering."--BOOK JACKET

18 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume contains the proceedings of the fourth European Software Engineering Conference. It contains 6 invited papers and 27 contributed papers selected from more than 135 submissions. The volume has a mixtureof themes. Some, such as software engineering and computer supported collaborative work, are forward-looking and anticipate future developments; others, such as systems engineering, are more concerned with reports of practical industrial applications. Some topics, such as software reuse, reflect the fact that some of the concerns first raised in 1969 when software engineering was born remain unsolved problems. The contributed papers are organized under the following headings: requirements specification, environments, systems engineering, distributed software engineering, real-time systems, software engineering and computer supported collaborative work, software reuse, software process, and formal aspects of software engineering."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE

Trust in technology a socio-technical perspective by Karen Clarke ( )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book encapsulates some work done in the DIRC project concerned with trust and responsibility in socio-technical systems. It brings together a range of disciplinary approaches - computer science, sociology and software engineering - to produce a socio-technical systems perspective on the issues surrounding trust in technology in complex settings. Computer systems can only bring about their purported benefits if functionality, users and usability are central to their design and deployment. Thus, technology can only be trusted in situ and in everyday use if these issues have been brought to bear on the process of technology design, implementation and use. The studies detailed in this book analyse the ways in which trust in technology is achieved and/or worked around in everyday situations in a range of settings - including hospitals, a steelworks, a public enquiry, the financial services sector and air traffic control. Whilst many of the authors here may already be known for their ethnographic work, this book moves on from accounts of 'field studies' to show how the DIRC project has utilised the data from these studies in an interdisciplinary fashion, involving computer scientists, software engineers and psychologists, as well as sociologists. Chapters draw on the empirical studies but are organised around analytical themes related to trust which are at the heart of the authors' socio-technical approach which shows the nuanced ways in which technology is used, ignored, refined and so on in everyday settings
