Some of the major challenges still facing the software industry are use of inappropriate methodology, lack of customer involvement, project complexity, and requirements volatility and management.In this work we propose the use of the Complex Adaptive System Software Engineering framework (CASSE) that analyzes value-related aspects of systems development - addressing satisfaction of all project requirements as a measure for project success. We specifically look at Actor Object Operation Structures (AOOS) and how they impact on the complexity of project requirements.We demonstrate our approach by analyzing use-case artifact properties and how a change in any propertiescan impact on project management during the development process. Our results show that the hidden interrelationships enhance implementation prioritization and schedule optimization.Our major contribution is in demonstrating that alternative engineering approaches that analyze AOOSs can enhance the way we understand project complexities, increase customer commitment and generate project value and success.
