Scenario-based requirements analysis

  title={Scenario-based requirements analysis},
  author={Alistair Sutcliffe},
  journal={Requirements Engineering},
A method for scenario-based requirements engineering is described. The method uses two types of scenario: structure models of the system context and scripts of system usage. A modelling language is reported for describing scenarios, and heuristics are given to cross-check dependencies between scenario models and the requirements specification. Heuristics are grouped into several analytic treatments that investigate correspondences between users’ goals and system functions; input events and… CONTINUE READING
