Abstract: As software development continues to increase in
complexity, involving far-reaching consequences, there
is a need for decision support to improve the decision
making process in requirements engineering (RE)
activities. This research begins with a detailed
investigation of the complexity of decision making
during RE activities on organizational, product and
project levels. Secondly, it presents a conceptual model
which describes the RE decision making environment in
terms of stakeholders, information requirements,
decision types and business objectives. The purpose of
this model is to facilitate the development of decision
support systems in RE and to help further structure and
analyse the decision making process in RE.
