Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"[...] Pohl succeeds in providing “a comprehensive, well-structured, and easy-to-read ... compendium” on the field of requirements engineering where such did not exist previously. It serves as an excellent reference volume [...]. The layout, visuals, and organization of the book are exceptional. [...] Students, practitioners, and researchers with an interest in requirements engineering for software and systems engineering should consider adding this unique book to their library." ACM Computing Reviews, Michael G. Murphy, Southern Polytechnic State University, Marietta, GA, USA, January 2011

"800-page volume divided into eight parts and 38 chapters. Pohl went to great lengths in organizing the book, and has been successful in providing a clean, comprehensive, and well-structured work. … Each part provides collections of basic and advanced reading lists for the individual chapters. The book concludes with a very helpful glossary of terms, a comprehensive collection of references, and a well-organized index. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." J. Beidler, Choice, Vol. 48 (6), February 2011

From the Back Cover

Requirements engineering is the process of eliciting individual stakeholder requirements and needs and developing them into detailed, agreed requirements documented and specified in such a way that they can serve as the basis for all other system development activities. In this textbook, Klaus Pohl provides a comprehensive and well-structured introduction to the fundamentals, principles, and techniques of requirements engineering. He presents approved techniques for eliciting, negotiating and documenting as well as validating, and managing requirements for software-intensive systems. The various aspects of the process and the techniques are illustrated using numerous examples based on his extensive teaching experience and his work in industrial collaborations. His presentation aims at professionals, students, and lecturers in systems and software engineering or business applications development. Professionals such as project managers, software architects, systems analysts, and software engineers will benefit in their daily work from the didactically well-presented combination of validated procedures and industrial experience. Students and lecturers will appreciate the comprehensive description of sound fundamentals, principles, and techniques, which is completed by a huge commented list of references for further reading. Lecturers will find additional teaching material on the book’s website, www.requirements-book.com.

Every systems engineer should have this as a desk reference!
L. Young
Building a new graduate-level course on Requirements Engineering I read thirteen books on or about RE before finding Dr Pohl's excellent book.

It is not common to see a book like this come out in today's technical book market, or for that matter in any era of the technical book market. Today most books are rushed to market, and publishers seem desperate for authors, because there is some real junk being published. But I am not comparing this book to the junk. I am comparing it to the classics like Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software, Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture, and Code Complete: A Practical Handbook of Software Construction, Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code .

This book is going to be a classic. It is the best book I have seen on Requirements Engineering, by far!!!! It is organized very well. The logical flow and organization of the book helps to make it a great read from front to back, as well as a great reference.

Some, I repeat "some", of what it covers includes System and Context Boundaries, Fundamentals of Goal Orientation, Documenting Goals, Fundamentals of Scenarios, Scenario Types, Documenting Scenarios, Solution-Oriented Requirements, Documenting Requirements in the Data Perspective, Documenting Requirements in the Functional Perspective, Documenting Requirements in the Behavioural Perspective, Documenting Quality Requirements in the Three Perspectives, Using UML2 and SysML, Natural Language Documentation, Structuring Natural Language Requirements, Fundamentals of Conceptual Modelling, Elicitation Techniques, Requirements Negotiation, Conflict Management, Requirements Validation, Requirements Management, Requirements Traceability, Prioritising Requirements, Change Management for Requirements, Co-development of Requirements and Architectural Artefacts, Requirements Engineering for Software Product Lines.

Format: Hardcover
I have just finished taking the class developed by Dr Eveleigh using this book. In a 10 week course we plowed through 700 of 800 pages. If requirements is the root of all system engineering problems then what is needed is a short, concise book. In no way could I give this to my supervisor and say "Hey boss! This is great stuff! Give it a read over the weekend and we'll begin to implement next week." Nor could I give it to an inexperienced person and expect them to produce good requirement artifacts. Other than the dedicated requirements engineer, I don't know who would ever want to or could use this book.

Dr Eveliegh is correct, the book is complete. However, it reads like a programing language documentation book where every idea and thought of requirements engineering is documented. It is a good reference book but for class room learning in a standard course length it is rather overwhelming.

Building a new graduate-level course on Requirements Engineering I read thirteen books on or about RE before finding Dr Pohl's excellent book. This book completely lays out and explains all of RE, not just some part of it like many books do. This book presents a holistic framework for the concepts, activities, and processes that make up RE and then systematically explains each with clear examples and tons of diagrams and graphics. Dr Pohl keeps the book very practical and avoids much of the abstract language that other RE books wander into and that practitioners might find overly academic. This book is an easy read and leaves out no detail. It is a remarkable value at 813 pages of readable text and graphics that do not require a microscope to read. Gets my highest recommendation.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have stated, the author covers a lot of ground in this book, but I found it to be less well-organized and applicable than I would have liked. I found Requirements Engineering by Hull, Jackson, and Dick to be much easier to follow and understand, perhaps because I am a general systems engineer working on medical devices, not a requirements engineering specialist dealing with ultra complex systems like aircraft or spacecraft. Having said that, this book does contain a great deal of useful information, but for me, it is not as well integrated and explained as the material in Hull's book, nor is some of it consistent with the requirements approach used by my organization. (In my experience with several companies, I have found approaches to requirements vary quite widely, depending on the system type, corporate culture, and industry.) On the positive side, it does at least touch on virtually every aspect of requirements engineering, and does a reasonable job trying to explain various approaches. I learned important concepts from the book, but in the end, came away wishing for a better integrated total package.

Format: Hardcover
As I started gathering material for my advanced level Requirements Engineering teaching courses, I ended up overwhelmed by the various misaligned reference books or articles, and I had a hard time trying to converge the various sources into my own RE framework, which I had based on Wiegers' Elicitation / Analysis / Specification / Validation / Management.
Up to the time I found this book.
Key to this book is its up to date, consistent and structuring reference framework, which explicitely addresses concerns which are assumed in other books. Among these concerns are the various nature of the requirements (goal, scenario and solution oriented requirements), the overall structure of the requirements (context, system / sub-system, what versus how, problem versus solution), and the core activities (elicitation / documentation / negociation). The book also clearly addresses the various domains of application, from bespoke and information techology to market driven or embedded software systems.
If you need to get into advanced general purpose RE, I do not know a better book today.
If you are short of time and want to stick to the essence, you may consider the far shorter "Requirements Engineering Fundamentals: A Study Guide for the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering Exam - Foundation Level - IREB compliant (Rocky Nook Computing)" from K.Pohl anc C.Rupp (160 pages against 777 - appendix excluded).
