    Abstract

    Taken literally, the term "requirements engineering" (RE) is a misnomer. A requirement is something that is wanted; engineering, according to Webster’s, is calculated manipulation. If our wants would arise by calculated manipulation, then something would be wrong. Our wants should not be engineered. What should be engineered, are solutions that meet our wants.
