|Abstract:||Abstract—Natural language is the main presentation
means in industrial requirements documents. This leads to
the fact that requirements documents are often incomplete
and inconsistent. Despite the fact that documents are mostly
written in natural language, natural language processing
(NLP) is barely used in industrial requirements engineering.
The presented paper shows, how a natural language
processing (NLP) approach can be integrated in a CASE tool.
This enables the integrated tool to learn on the fly, which
grammatical construction represents which model element.
A valuable side effect of the proposed integration is tracing
between the textual document and the constructed model.
The presented integrated tool was evaluated in several case
studies that have shown practical applicability of the tool.|
