Abstract

An efficient mechanism for bottom-up elicitation from domain experts is a key enabler for producing meaningful information requirements specifications. This paper describes “MindCollect,” an information-requirements management system that consists of: (a) An Information Needs Profiling Module for Q&A-based elicitation and gathering of operational user tasks and associated information needs; (b) Answer dataset management; and, (c) Automated formulation of coherent task narratives (aka user stories) using techniques inspired by Natural Language Generation approaches. MindCollect has proven efficient and effective in the bottom-up elicitation of requirements from domain experts. The use of MindCollect for determination of requirements in a civil emergency management project is described. Finally, we describe future research directions, including the potential for leveraging Linked Open Data.
