Abstract

Requirements Engineering involves different stakeholders and their different views of a system. Among these stakeholders, software designers are responsible for modeling the information gathered by domain experts. The communication between these specialists is not always easy, often leading to a semantic gap between what is desired and what is developed. This gap is characterized by inconsistencies between the requirements and the conceptual models produced. This paper tackles this issue by employing model-driven techniques to foster consistency in the conceptual modeling process, and by using a mind map model specification that facilitates communication between experts. Our approach defines a set of transformation rules to generate conceptual models from mind maps.
