AbstractAs technology advances existing theories are getting more and more complex to develop a model. Empirical methods are the only option in this situation. These methods are used for a variety of purposes. The software itself may need empirical methods. Empirical method might be needed for software engineering process analysis and improvement. In all cases, requirement models should be augmented to incorporate these empirical methods.
