QuantUn:quantification of uncertainty for the reassessment of requirements

Bencomo, Nelly QuantUn:quantification of uncertainty for the reassessment of requirements. IN: 2015 IEEE 23rd International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE), proceedings. IEEE.


Self-adaptive systems (SASs) should be able to adapt to new environmental contexts dynamically. The uncertainty that demands this runtime self-adaptive capability makes it hard to formulate, validate and manage their requirements. QuantUn is part of our longer-term vision of requirements reflection, that is, the ability of a system to dynamically observe and reason about its own requirements. QuantUn's contribution to the achievement of this vision is the development of novel techniques to explicitly quantify uncertainty to support dynamic re-assessment of requirements and therefore improve decision-making for self-adaption. This short paper discusses the research gap we want to fill, present partial results and also the plan we propose to fill the gap.
