In the context of digital transformation, we work on the challenge of speeding up the time-to-market of high-quality software products. The extraordinary value of this project comes from involving virtual reality systems for requirements engineering. From a practical point of view, we investigate how to digitalise the collaboration of local and remote participants during requirements elicitation sessions by making use of double robots and collaborative tools. Furthermore, we study how to involve computational mechanisms for the automatic generation of software design while requirements are discussed. Consequently, the software development life cycle (SDLC) goes through a process of digital transformation where requirements are generated “on the fly” and virtual reality systems are in place. Software analyst experience substantial reduction of manual tasks, more efficient communication, dedication to more analytical tasks, and assurance of software quality from conception phases.
