Abstract

System development activities such as requirements and design specification, implementation and verification are well defined in software engineering. Model driven engineering and SysML may result in significant improvements in engineering design. In this paper, a model-centric approach to formalize requirements expressed in narrative format is presented. An integrated framework that adopts the requirement checklist concept and utilizes logical reasoning and incidence matrix operations is described. An underground work machine is used as a case study to illustrate the proposed approach.

Keywords: requirements, requirements checklist, design specification, requirements formalization, model-centric requirements engineering
