Textual Requirement Analysis for UML Diagram Extraction by Using NLP

Requirement analysis is the preliminary step in software development process. The requirements stated by the clients are analyzed and an abstraction of it is created which is termed as requirement model. The automatic generation of UML diagram from natural language requirements is highly challenging and demanding very efficient methodology. Unified Modeling Language (UML) models are helpful for understanding the problems, communicating with application experts and preparing documentation. The static design view of the system can be modeled using a UML class diagram. System requirements stated by the user are usually in natural language form. This is an imprecise and inconsistent form which is difficult to be used by the developer for design UML model.
