[Context and motivation] When developing software, coordination
between different organizational units is essential in order to develop a good
quality product, on time and within budget. Particularly, the synchronization
between requirements and verification processes is crucial in order to assure
that the developed software product satisfies customer requirements.
[Question/problem] Our research question is: what are the current challenges
in aligning the requirements and verification processes? [Principal
ideas/results] We conducted an interview study at a large software
development company. This paper presents preliminary findings of these
interviews that identify key challenges in aligning requirements and verification
processes. [Contribution] The result of this study includes a range of
challenges faced by the studied organization grouped into the categories:
organization and processes, people, tools, requirements process, testing process,
change management, traceability, and measurement. The findings of this study
can be used by practitioners as a basis for investigating alignment in their
organizations, and by scientists in developing approaches for more efficient and
effective management of the alignment between requirements and verification.
