[edit] Abstract

Even though the software industry seems to have matured from the initial stage, the software projects' success rates are still low. This is mainly because of lack of correct, unambiguous, complete, consistent description on software requirements. How to specify and represent requirements correctly, unambiguously, completely and reach a common understanding among stakeholders in software projects, have become high priority issues. The aim of this paper is to study the ways of specifying and representing the semantic information of functional requirements in software projects. We propose a meta-model and implement it into semantic forms in Semantic MediaWiki. Our approach enables the building of functional requirements on a common semantic basis, thereby improving the analyzability and consistency of the requirements. The wiki environment also enables asynchronous collaboration to create and maintain the functional requirements.
