Abstract

The Goddard Space Flight Center's (GSFC) Software Assurance Technology Center (SATC) has developed an early life cycle tool for assessing requirements that are specified in natural language. This paper describes the development and experimental use of the Automated Requirements Measurement (ARM) tool. The ARM tool searches the requirements document for terms the SATC has identified as quality indicators. Reports produced by the tool are used to identify specification statements and structural areas of the requirements document that need to be improved.
