Abstract

This paper presents the first steps in a research project that integrates two requirements engineering methodologies, B-SCP and MAP, in order to manage the evolution of strategic IT. Our integration approach presents a mechanism to validate and verify MAP requirements against B-SCP requirements and vice versa. MAP has an inbuilt Gap Analysis process which saves the overhead of inventing a new approach to deal with requirements evolution. In addition, MAP extends B-SCP's capability by the addition of non-deterministic process modelling. Our solution is evaluated on an exemplar case study which looks at a system built for Seven Eleven Japan.
