Title: Methods for Quantification of Non-Functional Requirements
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced
Description: Addressing Non-Functional Requirements (NFRs) (e.g., security, performance, availability) in software systems is a challenging and complex task. Some of the factors that contribute to this complexity are informal specification and abstract nature of NFRs and their mutual dependencies. In this thesis work, we will be working on finding methods for quantifying non-functional requirements in a system. This means quantifying their satisfaction levels and also their dependencies and impacts. Quantification of NFRs helps a lot with performing more detailed comparison and analysis of them in computer systems, which can as well be used for optimization of NFRs.

This work will mainly be research-oriented involving surveys and extensive study of the field to categorize current methods, and improve and extend them.

Proposed: 2012-10-19
Prerequisites: Good knowledge in software architecture and familiarity with software requirements and requirements engineering. Some knowledge about fuzzy logic could also be useful but not necessary.
