A New Metadata Language for Software Requirements

A. Chikh and F. Al-Qershi
Abstract—The main aim of this paper is to elucidate how we can provide a set of more powerful software requirements targeted to facilitate their retrieval. So a central challenge for this research work is to define a new concept of software requirement object as combining two kinds of knowledge: 1) requirements knowledge and 2) metadata knowledge. A new metadata language is proposed in order to qualify, retrieve and reuse requirements. This new language is organized as a hierarchy, including categories, aggregate data elements and simple data elements.

Index Terms—Metadata, semantic interoperability, software requirements.
