Semantic Web Application in Requirement Tracing for Product Design Information

  title={Semantic Web Application in Requirement Tracing for Product Design Information},
  author={Aozi Gao and Xili Chen and Tomohiro Murata},
 Abstract— This paper proposes the application of Semantic Web (SW) technique in the Requirement Traceability (RT). The idea begins with information flow model of RT-related document in a firm and the meta data which represents model of document information transformation is applied. Finally, the proposed RT model is implemented to experimental system by using semantic Web tool for feasibility test with an RT scenario. Query Language is used for finding the requirements to be traced and its…

Lessons learned from building a Web-based requirements tracing system
This project has experimented with Web technologies to aid the tracing of requirements through requirement analysis, design and a prototype implementation and reports on the lessons learned.
Requirements tracing
Requirem TRacing I n this ever-changing business and technology environment, the risk of inconsistencies in systems development and evolution multiplies. Experience reuse becomes a necessity in order
Helping analysts trace requirements: an objective look
This work defines requirements for a tracing tool based on analyst responsibilities in the tracing process; several measures for validating that the requirements have been satisfied are introduced; and a prototype tool is presented, RETRO, to address these requirements.
Advancing candidate link generation for requirements tracing: the study of methods
This paper defines goals for a tracing tool based on analyst responsibilities in the tracing process, introduces several new measures for validating that the goals have been satisfied, and presents a prototype tool that is built, RETRO (REquirements TRacing On-target), to address these goals.
A case study on value-based requirements tracing
A case study on value-based requirements tracing (VBRT) that systematically supports project managers in tailoring requirements tracing precision and effort based on the parameters stakeholder value, requirements risk/volatility, and tracing costs is reported.
The change and evolution of requirements as a challenge to the practice of software engineering
  • S. Harker, K. Eason, J. Dobson
  • Computer Science
    [1993] Proceedings of the IEEE International Symposium on Requirements Engineering
  • 1993
The author identifies a number of ways in which different approaches to design may help to deal with change as well as mechanisms which should underpin effective communication between users and designers.
Practical RDF
Practical RDF explains RDF from the ground up, providing real-world examples and descriptions of how the technology is being used in applications like Mozilla, FOAF, and Chandler, as well as infrastructure you can use to build your own applications.
An analysis of the requirements traceability problem
  • O. Gotel, A. Finkelstein
  • Computer Science
    Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Requirements Engineering
  • 1994
The distinction between pre-requirements specification (pre-RS) traceability and post-RS traceability is introduced to demonstrate why an all-encompassing solution to the problem is unlikely, and to provide a framework to understand its multifaceted nature.
Information Retrieval and the Semantic Web
The underlying problems and issues central to extending information retrieval systems to handle annotations in semantic web languages are discussed and three prototype systems are described that have been implemented to explore these ideas.
Why and how of requirements tracing
This article explains how Abbott Laboratories Diagnostics Division approaches traceability and describes how it was one of the key factors in releasing an embedded, real-time in vitro diagnostic instrument on time.
