Learning and Using Requirements Representation Notations by Information Technology Professionals
UMI AAT 3081420
This dissertation describes a unified system modeling approach and notation that accommodates the user view and a pilot study of the ability of information technology (IT) professionals to learn and use requirements notations to represent user interface requirements. The study mapped a non-user view requirements notation into a user-view requirements notation. In so doing, it showed that the issues and concerns of nontechnical users could be integrated into the overall requirements for a system. The work consisted of three related parts.
The results of the pilot study suggest that the three notations studied are capable of representing the user’s view of requirements for a system. The pilot study was unique in its use of information technology professionals as subjects (volunteers) in the study.
