Abstract

Design requirements determine any product development, but how they influence each other is a grey area. In this paper we propose two indices to quantify the dependencies between requirements, applying them in a start-up context. On it, the analysis revealed great volatility and polarization, confirming that the initial expectations were distant to the final results. The proposed indices showed that they can be used to visualize tendencies at any time of a project, and thus could support a low-prejudge diagnose able to determine actions that minimize change propagation and rework.
