Abstract

Use-oriented techniques are widely used in software requirement analysis and design. Use cases and usage scenarios facilitate system understanding and provide a common language for communication. This paper presents a scenario-based modeling technique and discusses its applications. In this model, scenarios are organized hierarchically and they capture the system functionality at various abstraction levels including scenario groups, scenarios, and sub-scenarios. Combining scenarios or sub-scenarios can form complex scenarios. Data are also separately identified, organized, and attached to scenarios. This scenario model can be used to cross check with the UML model. It can also direct systematic scenario-based testing including test case generation, test coverage analysis with respect to requirements, and functional regression testing.
