TRANSFORMATION OF ORGANIZATION OF SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS SPECIFICATIONS

Yusuke Matsuo, Atsushi Ohnishi

Abstract

Specific software functional requirements can be organized with different ways, such as user class oriented organization, functional hierarchy oriented organization, stimulus oriented organization, and so on. User class oriented software requirements specification is easy to understand for each class of the user’s behaviours, but difficult to understand functional hierarchy. We adopt a controlled requirements language named X-JRDL as a requirements language and propose a transformation method between two software requirements specifications organized in different ways.
