This paper presents an approach to partially automate the requirements elicitation and specification processes. Because human interaction is of vital importance in requirements elicitation, it is almost impossible and impractical to fully automate the elicitation process. Our approach, combined with other established techniques, will increase the probability that the customer states real and nearly complete requirements. We have developed a prototype tool to support our approach, which can be used independently or jointly by customers, users, software engineers, and domain experts. The ultimate goal of our approach is to demonstrate the potential for this automated tool to improve the requirements elicitation and specification processes.
