In this paper, we propose an approach to reusing requirements specification, called Ž . task-based specifications in conceptual graphs TBCG . In TBCG, task-based specification methodology is used to serve as the mechanism to structure the knowledge captured in conceptual models, and conceptual graphs are adopted as the formalism to express requirements specification. TBCG provides several mechanisms to facilitate the reuse of formal specifications: a contextual retrieval mechanism to support
