Improving requirements engineering with personas

We are investigating the use of personas in requirements engineering with a view to working out ways to better use these during software engineering.

To this end we are looking into:

  1. How personas are currently used in RE and SE
  2. How we can build personas that represent effectively a wide range of human-centric issues
  3. How we validate these personas; and
  4. How we can use these personas during design and evaluation of software systems. This may include improved ways of defining personas, human-centric issues for personas, generating personas, and using persona models to support RE, design and evaluation.
