Understanding the users’ real requirements is absolutely critical to the development of successful information systems. To achieve a user-oriented and a high level quality of system and to increase the implementation of the integrated software systems, it is important that the user requirements must be captured and modelled in the right way. If done correctly, the software to be developed will meet the user’ needs and lead to better user satisfaction and implementation. This paper describes the case study of requirements engineering process adopted in the DIVERCITY system development. DIVERCITY was an EU funded project undertaken by a European consortium of researchers and practitioners from the construction industry. They were working together in an attempt to develop VR based software that enables the industry to better undertake the client briefing, design review, and construction planning phases of a construction project. It is the acronym for the project and the prototype: Distributed Virtual Workspace for enhancing Communication within the Construction Industry. The techniques used for capturing the requirements, and modelling, verification and validation are explained. Furthermore, the need for user requirements, key criteria definition for the evaluation and mastering the requirements engineering process for the future integrated system developments are also described.
