• u number of uses of a functional primitive
• n total number of requirements
• RI relative information carried by the functional
• E average information carried by the system
• Ci functional primitive’s relative contribution to the

To determine the relative contribution with respect
to a quality:

1. List all functional primitives that affect the quality
2. Calculate the relative information (Eq. 1) of each functional
primitive found in step 1.
3. Sum the relative information values found in step 2. This is the
average information carried by the quality (Eq.2)
4. Find each functional primitive’s relative contribution (Eq.3)

The analysis includes two steps:

–Interpret the functionality interaction figure
–Add the entropy metric to enhance the interpretation
