6th International Workshop on Requirements Patterns (RePa’16)

Motivation and Objectives

Getting requirements right is oftentimes challenging and in need of a large amount of knowledge and experience. “Patterns” have been used to capture knowledge of software engineering, concerning software architectures, component designs and programs, and more recently requirements engineering. The International Workshop on Requirements Patterns (RePa) workshop series was motivated by the desire to provide an open forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and experience, to develop pattern-based approaches to capturing, organizing, and reusing of all aspects of requirements engineering-related knowledge, from both process and product perspectives.

The main benefit of requirements patterns is the ability to reuse requirements engineering knowledge (processes or products).
