Abstract

The ability to correctly identify system requirements is seen by most Information Systems (IS) researchers and practitioners as essential to the design and development of effective information systems (Yadav, Bravoco et al. 1988; Vessey 1994). Requirements are used to drive all subsequent stages of systems development and are critical to system validation. Incorrect requirements or poorly specified requirements usually produce systems that require major revisions or are abandoned entirely (Pressman 1996). Recently, many new techniques and methodologies have been introduced to assist analysts and users in efforts to identify and specify system requirements (Coad, North et al. 1995) (Pancake 1995). One of the newest approaches to be used in this effort to improve requirements analysis is the application of object oriented analysis (OOA).
