The gamified Requirements Engineering (RE) Methodology (GREM) follows a facilitated multiplayer approach and can currently be used by up to 4 players simultaneously.
Gamification provides a collaborative approach to involve stakeholders from the life cycle of complex solutions, such as Product-Service Systems (PSS).
The gamified RE Methodology has been developed and applied in the European FoF-Project PSYMBIOSYS (No. 636804). http://www.psymbiosys.eu/
The objective of the gamified RE Methodology is to create initial requirements, but also possible solutions for specific problems to play with in a virtual environment.
After selecting a role, the players are able to specify requirements for the solution of a specific problem from their perspective. The players provide ideas for the other roles’ requirements, which are then displayed by the game and will be rated by all players. The best ideas are discussed to create an integrated solution. This process can be repeated iteratively.
