Where do goals come from: the underlying principles of goal-oriented requirements engineering

G. Regev, A. Wegmann
2005 13th IEEE International Conference on Requirements Engineering (RE'05)  
Goal is a widely used concept in requirements engineering methods. Several kinds of goals, such as achievement, maintenance and soft goals, have been defined in these methods.  ...  In this paper we propose a set of principles that explain the nature of goal-oriented behavior.  ...  based on goals, the so called Goal-Oriented Requirements Engineering (GORE) methods [19] .  ...

Distributed goal-oriented computing

Javier Palanca, Martí Navarro, Vicente Julian, Ana García-Fornes
2012 Journal of Systems and Software  
In this paradigm users express their goals and the OS is in charge of helping the achievement of these goals by means of a service-oriented approach.  ...  Users usually do know what they want to do, but they don't know how to do it. If the user knows its goals it could be easier to help him with a different approach.  ...  It is also presented an execution module for a Goal-oriented Operating System which gives support to this paradigm following the requirements defined in this work.  ...

Configuring features with stakeholder goals

Yijun Yu, Julio Cesar Sampaio do Prado Leite, Alexei Lapouchnian, John Mylopoulos
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '08  
Relating goals to solution-oriented features gives rise to a requirement traceability problem.  ...  In this paper, we present a new model-driven extension to an Early Requirements Engineering tool (OpenOME) that generates an initial feature model of the systemto-be from stakeholder goals.  ...  Fulfilment of all hard goals does not necessarily satisfy all quality requirements.  ...

Structuring requirement specifications with goals

Jonathan Lee, Nien-Lin Xue, Jong-Yih Kuo
2001 Information and Software Technology  
One of the foci of the recent development in requirements engineering has been the study of con¯icts and vagueness encountered in requirements.  ...  In this paper, a new approach is proposed to formulate the requirement speci®cations based on the notion of goals along three aspects: (1) to extend use cases with goals to guide the derivation of use  ...  The proposed approach is spawned based on this belief to fuse the goal-oriented and object-oriented modeling techniques in requirements engineering.  ...

Goals and learning in microworlds

C Miller
1999 Cognitive Science  
Through the development and use of a computer model that learns to play EFH, we analyzed the knowledge the model acquired as it applied the game-oriented strategies we observed physics students using.  ...  Through learning-by-doing on the standard sequence of tasks, the model substantially improved its EFH playing ability; however, it did so without acquiring any new qualitative physics knowledge.  ...  In its extreme form, the non-deliberate model suggests that no learning occurs when no adjustment is required, that is, when the goal is achieved on the first try.  ...
