    Abstract

    Delivering software systems that fulfill all requirements of the stakeholders is very difficult, if not at all impossible. We consider the problem of coping with imperfect information, like interpreting incomplete requirement specifications or vagueness in decisions, one of the main reasons that makes software design difficult. We define a method for tracing design decisions under imperfect information. To model and compare requirements with estimations, we present fuzzy and stochastic techniques. This approach offers adequate decision support that can deal with imperfect information during software design. The approach is illustrated by a real-world example, based on a storm surge barrier system.
