Abstract

In the field of requirements engineering, goal modeling approaches have received much attention in recent years by researchers and practitioners alike. This chapter identifies the uses of these approaches in different contexts of requirements analysis phases. It examines goal modeling in terms of five methodological orientations and defines a framework for their analysis. Using this framework it provides an analysis of goal modeling approaches in a systematic and consistent manner. The aim of this analysis is to understand the best fit for purpose of different goal modeling approaches and to highlight open issues that provide a foundation for further research in this important area of requirements engineering methodology.
