Problem of Incompleteness in Textual Requirements Specification

David Šenkýř, Petr Kroha

Abstract

In this contribution, we investigate the incompleteness problem in textual requirements specifications. Incompleteness is a typical problem that arises when stakeholders (e.g., domain experts) hold some information for generally known, and they do not mention it to the analyst. A model based on the incomplete requirements suffers from missing objects, properties, or relationships as we show in an illustrating example. Our presented methods are based on grammatical inspection, semantic networks (ConceptNet and BabelNet), and pre-configured data from on-line dictionaries. Additionally, we show how a domain model has to be used to reveal some missing parts of it. Our experiments have shown that the precision of our methods is about 60–82 %.
