Requirements classification and reuse: Crossing domain boundaries

A serious problem in the classification of software project artefacts for reuse is the natural partitioning of classification terms into many separate domains of discourse. This problem is particularly pronounced when dealing with requirements artefacts that need to be matched with design components in the refinement process. In such a case, requirements can be described with terms drawn from a problem domain (e.g. games), whereas designs with the use of terms characteristic for the solution domain (e.g. implementation). The two domains have not only distinct terminology, but also different semantics and use of their artefacts. This paper describes a method of cross-domain classification of requirements texts with a view to facilitate their reuse and their refinement into reusable design components.
