Abstract :
[en] Domain modeling is an important step in the transition from natural-language requirements to precise specifications. For large systems, building a domain model manually is laborious. Several approaches exist to assist engineers with this task, where Natural Language Processing is employed for automated extraction of domain model elements. Despite the existing approaches, important facets remain under-explored. Notably, there is limited empirical evidence about the usefulness of existing extraction rules in industry. Furthermore, important opportunities for enhancing the extraction rules are yet to be exploited. We develop a domain model extractor by bringing together existing extraction rules and proposing important enhancements. We apply our model extractor to four industrial requirements documents, reporting on the frequency of different extraction rules being applied. We conduct an expert study over one of these documents, investigating the accuracy and overall effectiveness of our domain model extractor.
