Requirements Engineering for No-Code Development (RE4NCD)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Context and motivation: In recent years, a new development approach has emerged, for rapid application development (RAD) supported by platforms that enable low or no-code development (NCD). This approach is designed for developers with limited or no coding expertise and for achieving a very short time-to-deployment. Question/problem: This research explores the process of RAD as performed with the Monday NCD platform. It focuses on the phases of requirement engineering (RE) and design, which are typically omitted during RAD, posing challenges in ensuring a rigorous, sustainable, and flexible application. Principal ideas/results: Addressing this gap, the paper introduces a proposed RE for NCD (RE4NCD) method, based on a case study in which a civilian management system was rapidly developed during a time of war, and proposes a research preview for further exploration and development of this research direction. Contribution: The paper highlights the theoretical and practical implications of RE4NCD, underscoring the potential transformative impact of NCD on the software development industry. It further proposes future research aimed at refining and validating the RE4NCD method, tracking the adoption and evolution of applications in diverse organizations, and applying the method to additional case studies for comprehensive evaluation and validation.
