Scenarios are well recognized as an important strategy towards understanding the interface between the environment and the system as well as a means to elicit and specify software behavior. We have a broader understanding of scenarios. For us a scenario is an evolving description of situations in the environment. Our proposal is framed by Leite's work on a client oriented requirements baseline, which aims to model the external requirements of a software system and its evolution. Scenarios starts as describing the environment situations, according to the main actions performed outside the software system. Scenarios do also help the clarification of the interrelation between functional and non-functional requirements. We have validated our strategy and the related representations based on case studies of a real situation.
