Abstract:


Challenges of Requirements Engineering become adequate when it is performed in global software development paradigm. There can be many reasons behind this challenging nature. “Risks” can be one of them, as there is more risk exposure in global development paradigm. So it is may be one of the main reasons of making Requirement Engineering more challenging. For this first there is a need to identify the factors which actually generate these risks. This paper therefore not only identifies the factors, but also the risks which these factors may generate. A systematic literature review is done for the identification of these factors and the risks which may occur during requirement engineering process in global software development paradigm. The list leads to progressive enhancement for assisting in requirement engineering activities in global software development paradigm. This work is especially useful for the, less experience people working in global software development.
