This paper presents experiences in requirements engineering analysis, service identification, and service specification that were gained during a service development project in a public government organization. These experiences resulted in a method comprising techniques relying on a combination of BPMN 2.0 and UML. This method shows that using a combination of these notations and model generation of IT artifacts leads to fewer documents for different stakeholders, alignment of service specifications to original requirements, and semantic unambiguousness for service specifications.
Dr. Gregor Scheithauer, OPITZ CONSULTING, and Björn Hardegen, MID, presented their BPMN Workshop “Requirements Engineering for SOA Services with BPMN 2.0” on 22th Oct. 2011 in Luzern.
