Scenarios are an effective means of eliciting stakeholder requirements. Experience shows that users find it easier to understand real-life examples expressed in natural language than they do diagrammatic models, even though they ‘say’ the same thing. In contrast, UML's status as the de facto industry standard is testament to the popularity of graphical techniques among engineers. This ‘conflict’ can be addressed by paraphrasing the original natural language requirements in model form. Clearly… CONTINUE READING
