In software engineering empirical methods are used to develop a scientific knowledge about how useful different SE methods and techniques are. The purpose is that of guiding the development of new SE technology and of supporting SE technology selection in industry. A variety of empirical methods are available (see for instance Easterbrook).
So far, several case studies have been developed to give evidence of the effectiveness of the Tropos methodologies and its extensions. Some of them are described in terms of experience papers. Comparative evaluations of the understandability of Tropos vs. UC models have also been realized through a controlled experiments.
