Glossary based Requirements Elicitation and Modeling

Requirements Engineering, Requirements Elicitation


Starting from conceptual models, tools which support the code generation task to a great extend are already on the market. However the problem still remains, that end users who are not familiar with these models do not understand them. These models are too abstract and to technical for them. As a result, the communica tion is still on a very concrete level based on the natu ral language description of requirements with all it’s deficiencies (e.g. ambiguity, incompleteness and huge requirements documents). This paper presents one solution for the problem. It describes a glossary based approach for requirements elicitation, classification and modeling. Glossaries can bridge the gap between complex and ambiguous sentences and compact con ceptual models.
