This chapter presents a strategy for the construction of RUP business models using client-oriented requirements models that are written in natural language. The RUP business model, whose objective is to understand the context of the system, is represented with business use cases and a business objects model. As there is no concrete strategy for its development, an integration of client-oriented requirements models and strategies that enhance the construction process of the business model, while keeping the RUP philosophy of using the language of the customer for the first stages of development, are proposed in this chapter. These models describe the context of the system from a different perspective through the use of a lexical model to describe the vocabulary, a model of scenarios to describe the behavior, and a business rules model to describe the policies of the organization. These models are manipulated through a set of heuristics in order to define the UP business model and to enhance traceability between the models. We use a case study to exemplify the strategy throughout the entire chapter.
