Final Thesis: Improving Domain Modeling And Requirements Analysis Using Grounded Theory
Abstract: One of the key factors of the success of professional software development is mature requirements engineering. This thesis focuses on the elicitation and analysis of requirements and addresses the process steps between the elicitation of requirements and the gathering of the system requirements specication and domain model. We consider the state-of-the-art of these aspects of requirements engineering as suboptimal and propose an approach that implements the elicitation and analysis of requirements as an adaption of the Grounded Theory approach, which is methodically sound at the eld of social studies. Our approach will implicate the institution of an additional artifact within the process, the so-called code system. Furthermore this approach enables the direct mapping from the gathered information about the target domain, represented in the code system, into a domain model.
