Abstract

Requirements activities performed in a software project are fundamental to address sustainable software systems and products. Although several techniques and frameworks have been proposed to describe sustainability requirements, there is a lack of process support for incorporating them in requirements centered processes. The objective of this paper is to understand the extent to which proposals to develop sustainability requirements can be mapped with the activities and tasks of the requirements processes that are part of ISO/IEC 12207. The set of reviewed papers, extracted from a previous systematic mapping study, was classified with respect to processes tasks. As a result, reviewed papers showed a trend to address tasks from the stakeholder requirements definition process, such as stakeholder identification, elicitation of requirements, and requirements analysis. However, activities and tasks within both the system requirements analysis process and software requirements analysis process need methodological support.
