Developing software of a predetermined quality in a predictable way requires a deep understanding of the effects of software engineering techniques (such as requirements analysis techniques) in different project and organizational contexts. As a consequence, the development or improvement of software engineering techniques should include the determination of their effects in varying contexts. This allows for comparing new or modified techniques with established state-of-the-art techniques and reduces risks in transferring innovative software engineering techniques originating from basic research into industry. This article presents a stepwise and empirically-based approach for transferring software engineering techniques from basic research to industrial usage. The approach is being applied in the context of the project A4 ("Experimenting with Techniques for Generic Software Product Lines") of the temporary research institute SFB 501 ("Development of Large Systems with Generic Methods"). The description of the approach is illustrated by an application example from the requirements engineering field.
