Toward the Automatic Construction of Task Models from Object-Oriented Diagrams
: Task models bridge the gap between HCI and Software Engineering. They are useful both for interface design and for generating user interface code and user documentation. These benefits, however, are difficult to achieve because building task models from scratch is difficult. In this paper, we describe an approach for automatically constructing task models from object-oriented diagrams in a CASE tool. The approach exploits the common semantic ground between task models and system-behaviour models, namely use cases, use case diagrams and sequence diagrams. We identify the useful information contained in these diagrams and how it can be augmented to support task model construction. A prototype system is then described, together with a working example. Key words: Formal models of user interfaces, Task models, information reuse, methodology, tools, Object-Oriented analysis and design
