Abstract

In the software development life cycle, requirements engineering is the main process that is derived from users by informal interviews written in natural language by requirements engineers (analysts). The requirements may suffer from incompleteness and ambiguity when transformed into formal or semi-formal models that are not well understood by stakeholders. Hence, the stakeholder cannot verify if the formal or semi-formal models satisfy their needs and requirements. Another problem faced by requirements is that when code and/or designs are updated, it is often the case that requirements and specifically the requirements document are not updated. Hence ending with a requirements document not reflecting the implemented software.Generating requirements from the design and/or implementation document is seen by many researchers as a way to address the latter issue. This paper presents a survey of some works undertaken in the field of generation natural language specifications from object UML model using the support of an ontology. and analyzing the robustness and limitations of these existing approaches. This includes studying the generation of natural language from a formal model, review the generation of natural language from ontologies, and finally reviews studies about check to generate natural language from OntoUML.
