This master’s thesis deals with the description and the selection of classic requirements-engineering techniques for the intralogistics software projects of the KNAPP Systemintegration GmbH. The purpose of this work is the characterization of approaches for the description of the project fundamentals as well as the requirements elicitation, the specification and the verification of requirements and the subsequent selection of suitable techniques for the future application in the course of an improvement project at the KNAPP Systemintegration GmbH. Additionally, this master’s thesis aims to raise awareness of the importance of professional requirements-engineering for the successful completion of customer projects. In order to achieve the defined goals, the preface of the thesis introduces the KNAPP Systemintegration GmbH and the department “Software Engineering” as well as the problem and the purpose statement. The subsequent first part of the thesis defines the necessary theoretical foundations of the topic. First, the main tasks of requirements-engineering as well as the concept of requirements and the requirements specification document are described. Then the thesis focuses on the documentation of the project fundamentals and the three main tasks of requirements-engineering, the requirements elicitation, the requirements specification and the verification of requirements. The necessary subtasks are highlighted and a set of techniques is characterized, that aims to facilitate the fulfillment of the mentioned tasks. In a detailed second part, the thesis focuses on the practical application of the acquired knowledge in the context of an improvement project at the KNAPP Systemintegration. The main goal of the project was to identify improvement potential regarding the requirements-engineering practice and to determine concrete improvement measures in order to enhance the quality of the requirements and the requirements specification documents and to facilitate the integration of new employees in the projects. First, the thesis examines the current situation regarding the requirements-engineering practice at the KNAPP Systemintegration GmbH, before it depicts the proceedings and the deliverables of the improvement project.
