Abstract

Natural language is the main presentation means in industrial requirements documents. In addition, communication between the different stakeholders is often insufficient, therefore requirements documents are frequently incomplete and inconsistent. This causes problems during modeling or programming.

The aim of the presented paper is to make deficiencies in behavior specifications apparent in the early project stage. The basic idea is to model the required system behavior and to generate feedback for human analysts, based on the deficiencies of the resulting models. The presented feedback generation was evaluated in an experiment. It was found that it can address genuine problems of requirements documents.
