Abstract [en]

The software field constantly strives for improving the design methods used for designing new products and systems. A design method, Rapid Contextual Design, is well defined when it comes to redesigning existing systems but less defined when eliciting requirements and designing new products for the public market. This report compares Rapid Contextual Design with Classical Requirements Engineering to show which method works better in requirements elicitation and designing a new product. This comparison is made by designing the product using both methods in parallel, without one method impacting the other. This report shows that both methods work well when eliciting requirements and developing a new product. In some areas of the project, Rapid Contextual Design worked better than Classical Requirements Engineering, but it does not answer which method works better in general. To answer this, further studies will have to be made.
