Abstract
The sources of requirements change should firstly be identified in the process of managing requirements, while the collection of information and the measurement of change activities should be conducted by methodology. This paper firstly reviewed the state of the arts of identifying and classifying requirements change sources in literature, pointed out the shortcomings of the present research. A new taxonomy for hierarchically identifying and classifying the sources of change were proposed based on four principles proposed. Thus, according to the formal steps of change management, three forms of collecting change information were suggested. The way to use these collected data to measure the process of requirements change was discussed. The results of this paper will provide some methods to carry out future empirical research concerning requirements change in industries.
