Quality requirements elicitation for new computer applications rests traditionally on interviewing stakeholders. That makes getting these requirements right more complicated than is necessary because the anticipated users not necessarily are good at talking about the kind of computer aid and its qualities they would appreciate. We suggest bypassing that problem by constructing and using POSE (parameterized online simulation environment). Within this environment, anticipated users can explore ways of computer support for their work; it then makes it easier to talk about a potential computerized aid and the qualities thereof. Using POSE also simplifies obtaining quantified scenarios related to the various system qualities. As a result, this environment aids in getting the quality requirements right.
