A considerable number of methods and tools have been proposed for the treatment of non-functional requirements (NFRs). There is ample evidence that NFRs play a significant role in the Information Systems Engineering process. However, there is surprisingly an absence of an agreed position regarding the definition of NFRs, their classification and presentation. This paper reports on a systematic literature review of the documented NFR approaches, classifies these approaches according to different criteria and provides a qualitative analysis of their scopes and characteristics. The results of this analysis can serve system developers as the means of deriving appropriate methods and tools of NFRs engineering process in the system development. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2014.

Whilst there are successful general web search engines such as Google that will find any piece of content, there is a perceived need for a specific search that makes better use of the internal knowledge the broadcasting industry (e.g. BBC) has about its own content. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is a public service broadcaster funded by the licence fee paid by United Kingdom households. This industrybased case study looks at the applicability of Soft Systems Methodology (SSM) and Unified Modelling Language (UML) to design a hypothetical, high-level view of a search application that receives web content from a variety of BBC content production systems and makes every item then searchable by a BBC website visitor using the search feature. The developers of such search applications can benefit from this specific industrybased case study that contextualised the problem space using SSM and developed UML models to solve the problem. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2014.
