A cots-software requirements elicitation method from business process models

Aslan, Ercan
In this thesis, COTS-software requirements elicitation, which is an input for RFP in software intensive automation system̕s acquisition, is examined. Business Process Models are used for COTS-software requirements elicitation. A new method, namely CREB, is developed to meet the requirements of COTS-software. A software intensive system acquisition of a military organization is used to validate the method.


An Effort Prediction Model Based on BPM Measures for Process Automation
Aysolmaz, Banu; Iren, Deniz; Demirörs, Onur (2013-06-18)
BPM software automation projects require different approaches for effort estimation for they are developed based on business process models rather than traditional requirements analysis outputs. In this empirical research we examine the effect of various measures for BPMN compliant business process models on the effort spent to automate those models. Although different measures are suggested in the literature, only a few studies exist that relate these measures to effort estimation. We propose that differen...
An approach for eliciting functional requirements of the software intensive systems based on business process modeling
Yıldız, Okan; Güçlü, Nusret; Demirös, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2002)
In this thesis, eliciting system functional requirements based on business requirements during software intensive systems acquisition or development process is investigated and an approach is proposed for this purpose. Concepts and current problems within the framework of business requirements are investigated with a general literature review of requirements engineering and technology acquisition. Determination of requirements of IT system to be acquired according to the business objectives and base lining ...
A Quality model for cloud-based enterprise information systems
Şener, Umut; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Department of Information Systems (2016)
Organizations have migrated from on-premise enterprise information systems to Cloud-based Enterprise Information Systems (Cloud-EIS) due to the benefits of cloud computing, such as flexibility, availability on demand, and interdependence in information technology infrastructure. Accordingly, enterprises perceive the significance of the quality of Cloud-EIS for improving their businesses, and they pay more attention to selecting the suitable Cloud-EIS. Having looked at the extensive literature, only a few re...
Unified Process Modeling with UPROM Tool
Aysolmaz, Banu; Demirörs, Onur (2014-06-20)
UPROM tool is a business process modeling tool designed to conduct business process and user requirements analysis in an integrated way to constitute a basis for process automation. Usually, business process models are not utilized systematically to develop related artifacts, specifically when a process-aware information system is to be developed to automate those processes. This results in completeness, consistency and maintainability problems for those artifacts. Unified business process modeling methodol...
A Taxonomy for Personal Processes: Results from a Semi-structured Interview
Oruç, Sercan; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Koçyiğit, Altan; Yeralan, Sencer (2019-01-01)
There are few studies conducted on personal processes within the Business Process Management (BPM) domain. Personal processes are looser and more context- and person-dependent compared to the clearly defined business processes. This makes it more challenging to create solutions in this domain. In this study, a taxonomy is developed for personal processes. We used the data collected from semi-structured interviews that we have conducted with a diverse population. We built a taxonomy with 4 classes and 22 sub...
