Abstract
THE GENERATION OF REQUIREMENT ANALYSIS MEASURES CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY THE "EXPERT SYSTEM" APPROACH. IF A COMPUTER PROGRAM IS DEVELOPED WHERE THE INPUTS OF AN EXPERIENCED EVALUATION ENGINEER CAN BE STORED A SET OF LOGICAL QUESTIONS DEFINED AND A METHOD FOR ITS PROGRESSION (INFERENCE ENGINE) THEN A POWERFUL STANDARDIZED SOFTWARE QUALITY TOOL WILL BE AVAILABLE. THE NATURAL APPLICATION OF A PRACTICAL AI SYSTEMS WILL RESULT IN THE LOGICAL DEVELOPMENT OF REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS MEASURES. THIS STUDY DEMONSTRATES THAT A PRACTICAL "EXPERT SYSTEM" CAN BE APPLIED TO THE SOLUTION OF THE REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS PROBLEM. A SOFTWARE QUALITY ASSESSMENT AND MEASUREMENT (SQAM) KNOWLEDGE BASE SYSTEM WILL BE DEFINED WHICH WITH "EXPERT" GUIDANCE CAN BE EXPANDED TO PROVIDE A RELATIONAL SET OF REQUIREMENTS. USING A COMMERICALLY AVAILABLE SOFTWARE SYSTEM A DEMONSTRATION KNOWLEDGE BASE WILL BE IMPLEMENTED. THE INFERENCE RUELS NECESSARY FOR A REQUIREMENTS ASSESSMENT WILL BE DEVELOPED. A KNOWLEDGE ACQUISITION SYSTEM WILL BE EVALUATED IN ORDER TO PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY TO UPDATE THE KNOWLEDGE BASE.
