Use case modeling is an effective technique used to capture functional requirements. Use case models are mainly composed of textual descriptions written in natural language and simple diagrams that adhere to a few syntactic rules. This simplicity can be deceptive as many modelers create use case models that are incorrect, inconsistent, and ambiguous and contain restrictive design decisions. In this paper, a new methodology is described that utilizes antipatterns to detect potentially defective… CONTINUE READING
