Abstract: Requirements analysis is the first phase in the traditional software engineering lifecycle. Requirement analysis takes up only 3% of the entire effort typically expended on a software project. Early correction of potential problems may alleviate vast problems later on in the maintenance phase. A method is proposed for Petri net representation of a requirements analysis narrative. The narrative is analyzed by an algorithm which identifies the nouns and verbs that correspond with and are assigned to Petri net nodes.
Keywords: requirement analysis narrative; linguistic narrative analysis; software engineering; matrix algorithm.
