rmtoo-analytics-hotspot - requirements management tool: analytics module for detecting hotspots
The rmtoo analytics module hotspots uses a heuristic to check whether a requirement is a HotSpot or not. A HotSpot is a requirement with many incoming or outgoing edges.
It was discovered that often in a set of requirements there are some requirements where a lot of other requirements depend on - or which depend on a large number of other requirements.
These so called HotSpots typically hint to a region in the requirements dependency graph where redesign must be done and some work must be spend.
The current implementation is based on the idea that each requirement is a problem which must be solved by a ’Devide et Impera’. It doesn’t make sense to divide in tens of sub-problems. It is mostly better to go for only some major and then divide them further down.
This module cannot be configured.
