Abstract

The first stage in transitioning from stakeholders’ needs to formal designs is the synthesis of user requirements from information elicited from the stakeholders. In this paper we show how shallow natural language techniques can be used to assist analysis of the elicited information and so inform the synthesis of the user requirements. We also show how related techniques can be used for the subsequent management of requirements and even help detect the absence of requirements’ motivation by identifying unprovenanced requirements.
