Abstract

This paper discusses an advanced tagging concept which supplies information that allows for a tool supported step by step mapping of natural language requirements specification to a conceptual (predesign) model.The focus lies on sentences containing conditions as used for describing alternatives in business process specifications. It is shown, how the tagging results are interpreted systematically such allowing for a stepwise model generation.
