B-Tropos: Agent-oriented requirements engineering meets computational logic for declarative business process modeling and verification
MetadataShow full item record
The work presented in this paper stands at the intersection of three diverse research areas: agent-oriented early requirements engineering, business process requirements elicitation and specification, and computational logic-based specification and verification. The analysis of business requirements and the specification of business processes are fundamental steps in the development of information systems. The first part of this paper presents B-Tropos as a way to combine business goals and requirements with the business process model. B-Tropos enhances a well-known agent-oriented early requirements engineering framework with declarative business process-oriented constructs, inspired by the DecSerFlow and ConDec languages. In the second part of the paper; we show a mapping of B-Tropos onto SCIFF, a computational logic-based framework for properties and conformance verification.
