Dependency Charts as a Means to Model Inter-Scenario Dependencies
: Scenarios/use cases have gained wide-spread use over the last couple of years. In software engineering they are mainly used to capture requirements and specify a system. Many software engineering approaches, most notably the UML (Unified Modeling Language [RJB99]), use some notion of scenario to support requirements elicitation and to provide a means for improved communication between software engineers, customers and users, and for enhanced user integration in the software development process. Yet prominent and renowned approaches like the UML lack a concept for modeling dependencies and relations between scenarios and offer only little support for the description and management of scenarios and of inter-scenario relationships. However, dependencies between scenarios are common, in fact dependencies between scenarios occur in any software development project of reasonable size.
