Natural language requirements specifications form the basis for the subsequent phase of the information system development process, namely the development of conceptual schemata. Both, the textual as well as the conceptual representations are not really appropriate for being thoroughly captured and validated by the ‘requirement holders’, i.e. the end users.(More)
Business process modeling is an important part of each software development project. No software is developed without specifying it's use within the context of business processes. Since business process modeling is an important task during requirements engineering, in our opinion the same basic modeling notions should be used. This paper gives a first(More)
Scenarios are a very popular means for describing and analyzing behavioral aspects on the level of natural language. In information systems design, they form the basis for a subsequent step of conceptual dynamic modeling. To enhance this step, linguistic instruments prove applicable for transforming scenarios into conceptual schemas of various models. This(More)
Usually, the development of an information system (or some part of it) starts with an requirements elicitation, collection and analysis phase that results in a set of natural language requirements specifications. These then serve as a source for the phase of conceptual design where a semantic model of the given universe of discourse is established using(More)
In this article we present a new approach to Ontology-based Software Engineering (OBSE) meant for practical use in enterprises and industrial projects. Following this approach, Software projects are no longer driven only by requirements and models but also by one or several ontology/ies covering their application domain. Our main thesis says that OBSE can(More)
In our paper we discuss results of the real-life project in the domain of Information Handling Systems for Technological Process Control (TPC-IHS) development in the gas-transport and gas-production branches in the Ukraine. We emphasize important requirements, which have to be satisfied by analyzing and designing of Web-based TPC-IHS. Architectural design(More)
