Günther Fliedl, Christian Kop, Heinrich C Mayr, Willi Mayerthaler, Christian Winkler
2000 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
NIBA is a german acronym for natural language requirement analysis. The project is sponsored by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung Heidelberg.  ...  Therefore, within the NIBA-Project 3 , we aim at providing for such tools and the related theory.  ...  For this purpose, the process of requirements translation has been divided into the NTMS-based semanto-syntactic analysis of natural language requirements specifications and the extraction of discourse  ...

Using Linguistic Knowledge for Fine-tuning Ontologies in the Context of Requirements Engineering

Jürgen Vöhringer, Doris Gälle, Günther Fliedl, Christian Kop, Mykola Bazhenov
2010 International Journal of Computational Linguistics and Applications  
In the requirements engineering domain finegranulated domain ontologies are needed; therefore the suitability of both hand-knitted and automatically generated gap-afflicted ontologies for developing applications  ...  In this paper we focus on finetuning ontologies through linguistically guided key concept optimization.  ...  We agree that for real-world applications like ontology engineering in requirements engineering projects, automatically generated ontologies might not be suitable and we therefore propose linguistic heuristics  ...

A User Centered Approach to Requirements Modeling

Heinrich C. Mayr, Christian Kop
2002 Modellierung  
The paper argues that the conventional methods for object oriented analysis and conceptual modeling suffer from lacks in requirements elicitation and validation by the end-user.  ...  Therefore, an intermediate level called 'conceptual predesign' is introduced between natural language requirements specification and conceptual design.  ...  this paper is part of the NIBA project ("Natürlichsprachige Informationsbedarfsanalyse", "Natural Language Based Requirements Analysis") which has been funded by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung, Heidelberg  ...

Tool Supported Extraction of Behavior Models

Christian Kop, Jürgen Vöhringer, Martin Hölbling, Thomas Horn, Heinrich C. Mayr, Christian Irrasch
2005 International United Information Systems Conference  
In addition to that, validation is often hampered by the fact that traditional modeling approaches do not relate the particular model elements to their corresponding requirements sources.  ...  In our opinion, which is supported by practical experience, these problems result from the fact that the models usually applied for requirements analysis are to abstract as to be easily understood and  ...  The aim of the project NIBA is natural language processing to support requirements engineering and conceptual modeling. the end user rarely is provided with references to the corresponding requirements  ...

From Scenarios to KCPM Dynamic Schemas: Aspects of Automatic Mapping

Günther Fliedl, Christian Kop, Heinrich C. Mayr
2003 International Conference on Applications of Natural Language to Data Bases  
This transformation usually consists of three steps: linguistic analysis, component mapping and schema construction.  ...  To enhance this step, linguistic instruments prove applicable for transforming scenarios into conceptual schemas of various models.  ...  Apart from these limitations we think that the construction of a successor graph can also help other approaches to integrate schema elements to an existing schema (e.g. a new activity to a activity diagram  ...

OntoElecting Requirements for Domain Ontologies

Vadim Ermolayev
2018 Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - An International Journal  
The approach used in the reported research is based on the use of OntoElect – the methodology for ontology refinement.  ...  It demonstrates, that a thorough routine for indirect elicitation, ensuring completeness, correctness of interpretation, using in ontology evaluation of these requirements is a must for ontology engineering  ...  KCPM has been further developed by incorporating linguistic text processing in the requirements elicitation routine.  ...
