In this paper, we are emphasizing our perfect appreciation of using visualization means in requirements engineering as key success factor in any complex (software) development project. We are discussing our experiences with requirements engineering visualization, in the large part gained in the course of a three years multidisciplinary software development project in the insurance domain. A business process-based requirements modeling and management approach that has been developed and employed within this project is described. In order to overcome some process-related and tool integration issues to refine this approach, we investigated a recently released requirements engineering software of a prominent vendor. Experiences using this tool, tool integration for requirements engineering visualization, and suggestions for future research are discussed extensively.
