Managing Multiple Requirements Perspectives with Metamodels
March 1996 (vol. 13 no. 2)
pp. 37-48
Stakeholder conflicts can be productive in requirements engineering. A requirements-engineering project should ensure that crucial requirements are captured from at least two perspectives, preferably in a notation of the customer's choosing. Capturing, monitoring, and resolving multiple perspectives is difficult and time-consuming when done by hand. Our experience with ConceptBase, a meta-data-management system, shows that a simple but customizable metamodeling approach, combined with an advanced query facility, produces higher quality requirements documents in less time. Our experience shows that conceptual metamodeling technology can be a valuable complement to informal teamwork methods of business analysis and requirements engineering. In particular, the use of representations and cross-perspective analysis can help identify a wide variety of conflicts and, perhaps more important, monitor them.
