Abstract [en]

In the automotive industry, the complexity of electronic components is increasing rapidly. Modern functional safety standards rely on strict requirements engineering techniques in order to ensure the safety of a given system. Current requirements management tools on the market either suffer in their ability to handle such constraints or are not susceptible to industrial applicability.

To solve this problem, two main questions have been focused in this master thesis. How to visualise the requirements and their relationship to architecture and how to provide a solution that reflects on how work is conducted today at Scania.

A prototype with focus on visualisation of requirements and their relationship to architectures has been developed. To provide an intuitive solution that reflects on how work is conducted, an evaluation of the prototype has been conducted.

The prototype was evaluated by engineers at Scania that works with requirements in their daily work. The conclusion of the evaluation suggests that visualisation of requirements and their relation to architecture could be beneficial for requirement engineering. To keep the solution intuitive it is important to focus on filtering methods for the visualisation in future development.
