Abstract

This study offered a tailored-design, prototype and produced tool as a proof-of-concept of the proposed IM-DeCRuD approach. Main features of the identified IM-DeCRUD prototype are: requirements specification definition, requirements specification modification, requirements prioritization setting and graphics visualizing representation which were produced by using the Generic Modelling Environment (GME) case tool. Java language was applied as interpreter to incorporate the feature of the prototypes. To evaluate the pertinence of the IM-DeCRuD prototype, this study used the approach of a simple case study of a library system. As a result, during the software development and valuation activities, the prototype showed its power to simplify the tedious engineering process of requirements and design crosscutting concerns.
