Best Requirement Engineering Method for Building IoT Systems

Assessed intended learning outcomes

Assessed intended learning outcomes: Knowledge and Understanding.

On completion of this assessment you will have had the opportunity to:

A1 - Critically assess the software engineering methods and approaches recommended for use in selected business and application domains

A2 - Compare and contrast software engineering methods and approaches Transferable/Key Skills and other Attributes.

On completion of this assessment you will have had the opportunity to:

B1 - Undertake information gathering, using recognised information sources (e.g. professional body digital libraries)

B2 - Write a technical report, structured according to professional standards

B3 - Critically compare the benefits and disadvantages of selected approaches

Task details and instructions:


You work for a company in Northern Quarter, Manchester, e.g. Valtech that has a good experience (5-7 years) of building business information systems. Recently, they realized that there is a great interest in IoT systems and many applications take advantage of this technology.

The importance of IoT is to improve the daily living standards of an average user. IoT is made for the people and used by the people for many reasons such as improved health, business innovations, and personal health trackers. Examples of IoT applications and services today include Smart thermostats like NEST, connected cars like Car2Go, Parking sensors like streetline and so much more services being developed.

The elicitation, specification and management of requirements for IoT systems present new challenges to requirements engineering. The company is proposing to create a new unit for

developing IoT application systems and they want to know which requirement engineering technique would be the best one to be adopted while addressing the new challenges.


The Chief Information Officer (CIO) understand the challenges of elicitation, specification and management of requirements for IoT systems in practice. They have has asked you to investigate the challenges by surveying the literature to come up with the best requirement engineering method which would address these challenges and be adopted by the company in building IoT systems.

The literature contains several proposals that address requirements engineering in the context of IoT systems. Examples of these proposal include scenario-based techniques and tailored version from the processes of ISO IEC/IEEE 12207 (Systems and software engineering – Software life cycle processes).


Your tasks are to:

  • Conduct information gathering in research publications (journals and conferences) accessed through the library, online, and the in module materials provided.

  • Give an overview of IoT systems.

  • Identify and discuss the challenges to elicit, specify and manage requirements for IoT systems rather than for classical ones.

  • Identify and critically assess 3-4 methods/proposals that address requirements engineering process in the context of IoT systems.

  • Based on your analysis above, discuss and develop a set of recommendations for your company to adopt the best requirements engineering method. Justify your recommendations why the CIO would adopt this particular method over the others. Support these recommendations with evidence.

Report Format

Your report should include the following:

  • Front Sheet – your full name, your student ID, your User name, date, the assessment title, the name of the module and its CRN.
  • Executive Summary – summarise report motivation, objectives, methodology used, findings and
  • Table of Contents.
  • Introduction – motivation and aim for report and description of report structure. Main body of the report
  • Discussion and Recommendations
  • Conclusions containing, lessons learned, and strengths and weakness of your report as a whole.
  • References – the sources used in your report (and cite them in the body of your report). You must consistently use a recognised

Your submission should be typed (rather than hand-written) in, font size 12pt. If you use colour for emphasis, please bear in mind your submission may be printed in black and white.
