Résumé: This paper introduces a framework to produce and to manage quality requirements of embedded aeronautical systems, called the Requirements Engineering Framework (REF for short). It aims at making the management of the requirement lifecycle easier, from the specification of the purchaser’s needs, to their implementation in the final products, and also their verification, while controlling costs. REF is based on the main standards of aeronautics, in particular RTCA DO-254 'Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware' (aka EUROCAE ED-80), and RTCA DO-178B 'Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification' (aka EUROCAE ED-12) standards, for hardware and software components, respectively. An implementation of REF, using the IBM Rational DOORS and IBM Rational Change tools, is also presented in this paper. REF, described in this article, does not refer to the practices of a particular firm in aeronautics.
