Abstract

B-SCP is a promising framework addressing alignment of IT with business strategy from a requirements engineering persective. A problem with the B-SCP framework is that it is extremely difficult to track dependencies between requirements in a project of realistic complexity. We discuss how the RDF data model with OWL semantics, will greatly benefit an implementation using B-SCP. Our contribution is to extend B-SCP by describing an ontology data structure for representing the requirements and the complex rules which map them together. Seven Eleven-Japan is used as an exemplar to demonstrate improved productivity and consistency of B-SCP.
