ScenIC is a requirements engineering method for evolving systems. Derived from the Inquiry Cycle model of requirements refinement, it uses goal refinement and scenario analysis as its primary methodological strategies. ScenIC rests on an analogy with human memory: semantic memory consists of generalizations about system properties; episodic memory consists of specific episodes and scenarios; and working memory consists of reminders about incomplete refinements. Method-specific reminders and resolution guidelines are activated by the state of episodic or semantic memory. The paper presents a summary of the ScenIC strategy and guidelines.
