Abstract

Because of the characteristics of contemporary system development and system evolution, it appears necessary to come up with an approach that allows the permanent and evolutionary engineering of software for new and already-existing information and application systems. The requirement is to plan and construct with room for changes, adoptions and enhancements since this will happen in the lifetime of every large software product. This contribution provides first research results to plan for adaptability in software engineering based on the research project IOSEW . For that criteria are explored which promise assessing software engineering approaches for adaptability. The contribution is submitted as research in progress paper.
