Abstract
This proposal investigates the use of semantic analysis to improve the requirements collection portion of the systems engineering process. Specifically, it addresses those tasks associated with the development of a complete and unambiguous definition for each stakeholder requirement (a.k.a. stakeholder need). To ensure a robust design, The AEgis Technologies Group, Inc (AEgis) will begin with an"expert system"that performs a similar task, and modify it to accommodate the systems engineering processes for needs characterization. The final product will be a tool that intelligently aids systems engineers in capturing sufficient requirements objectives (to describe the context, function, information and performance), while also accommodating the characterization of stakeholder needs relative to their priority and relevant Models and Simulations (M & S). AEgis also proposes the development and population of a metadata database (or other appropriate construct) to improve interactions between this requirements tool and applicable documentation, such as other stakeholder requirements, solution architectures, and vernacular dictionaries.
