Abstract

Using an interdisciplinary approach to requirements engineering for an emergency responder support system ensures that system capabilities as well as such considerations as usability and utility are based on the clear needs of emergency responders and other stakeholders. The described methodology integrates brainstorming, competitive assessment, user interviews, scenario development, use case development, mobile device user interface mockups, and emergency responder validation of the resulting requirements. The approach was employed to consider diverse stakeholders in emergency response situations.
