    This last chapter of the book describes solutions and trends in the discipline of RE. Starting from a wrap-up of what was presented throughout this book, it suggests a framework of requirements engineering and indicates what current solutions are available in this framework. Beyond providing a short overview of the state of the practice, this chapter also summarizes current trends in RE. Four trends are evaluated, namely the growing usage of commercial off-the-shelf components and systems and how RE activities need to be adjusted; the evolving focus on product lifecycle management and the need to collaborate amongst very heterogeneous communities; the wish to learn and to share experiences on effective ways to implement RE in an organization and the growing interest in requirements engineers’ skill sets. We finally provide an outlook into where requirements engineering is heading for.
