Intelligent Recommendation & Decision Technologies for Community-Driven Requirements Engineering


As software projects continue to grow in size and importance, the need for intelligent, diverse, personalised, and sustainable requirements grows as well. Creating and maintaining such requirements demands tool support beyond what is currently offered. OpenReq satisfies these needs.


The goal of OpenReq is to build an intelligent recommendation and decision system for community-driven require­ments engineering. OpenReq recommends, prioritises, and visualises requirements using novel techniques developed at leading research institutes.


The outcomes of OpenReq touch a broad set of communities. OpenReq provides actionable feedback for software practitioners, novel contributions for the scientific community, and solid foundations for the open-source requirements engineering community.


Find the features that are right for you and your requirements lifecycle. OpenReq offers a range of functionality across four technical workpackages.

  • Identify diverse preferences
  • Resolve critical conflicts

Knowledge and Dependency Management

Software products exist longer than one development lifecycle, so should clean requirements. Extend the life of your requirements.

  • Identify requirements dependencies
  • Support requirements reasoning
  • Encourage healthy reuse of requirements

Choose the product that is right for you
