We describe an XML-based approach to requirements engineering that allows flexible tuning of the requirements’ structure according to the level attained by an organization in SEI’s Capability Maturity Model (CMM). As an application, we present HERMES, a XML-based, opensource, flexible requirement management environment allowing for tuning requirements’ structure according to developers’ needs. Our technique is particularly suitable for development in-the-small and lightweight processes like XP1.
