EXTRACTING CLASS STRUCTURE BASED ON FISHBONE DIAGRAMS

Makoto Shigemitsu, Yoshiyuki Shinkawa

Abstract

Current software development methodologies usually assume the existence of definite rules and processes in target problem domains. However, in the software development for non-routine applications, this assumption might decrease the productivity, and makes it difficult to identify the optimal solutions. The paper proposes a development method for such software development using fishbone diagrams in order to analyze the requirements of stake holders, which can finally derive UML diagrams from the cause-result structure defined by the fishbone diagrams. The method could improve the productivity of the above development, creating high quality software specifications. We also show a case study on developing education assistance software using the proposed method.
