Using of i*(iStar) 2.0 for Improving the Use Cases Derivation

Authors

Keywords:

Organizational Modeling, Requirements Engineering, Use Cases

Abstract

The process of deriving use cases from organizational models built using the i * framework has been presented in previous works. However, the guidelines used to derive use cases are based on the elements of the original version of i *. More recently, the new version i * 2.0 has been proposed incorporating important changes which must be evaluated in relation to their impact on the use case derivation process. In this work, this evaluation is carried out, the guidelines modified and applied to an example showing the improvements obtained.
