Patterns for Checking Incompleteness of Scenarios in Textual Requirements Specification

David Šenkýř, Petr Kroha

Abstract

In this contribution, we investigate the incompleteness problem in textual requirements specifications. Missing alternative scenarios are one of the incompleteness sources, i.e., descriptions of processing in the cases when something runs in another way as expected. We check the text of requirements specification using linguistic patterns, and we try to reveal scenarios and alternative scenarios. After that process is finished, we decide whether the set of alternative scenarios is complete. As a result, we generate warning messages. We illustrate our approach with examples.
