SUPPORTING METHODS OF GENERATING ALTERNATIVE SCENARIOS FROM A NORMAL SCENARIO

Atsushi Ohnishi

Abstract

A generation method of alternative scenarios using a normal scenario written with the scenario language SLAF is proposed. This method includes (1) generation of alternative plans and (2) generation of alternative scenario by a user’s selection of these plans. Our method enables to lessen the omission of the possible alternative scenarios in the early stages of development and contributes to improve the correctness and effectiveness of the software development.
