User Requirements Notation: The First Ten Years, The Next Ten Years (Invited Paper)
The User Requirements Notation (URN), standardized by the International Telecommunication Union in 2008, is used to model and analyze requirements with goals and scenarios. This paper describes the first ten years of development of URN, and discusses ongoing efforts targeting the next ten years. The authors did a study inspired by the systematic literature review approach, querying five major search engines and using the existing URN Virtual Library. Based on the 281 scientific publications related to URN they collected and analyzed, they observe a shift from a more conventional use of URN for telecommunications and reactive systems to business process management and aspect-oriented modeling, with relevant extensions to the language being proposed.
