Objectiver is a modeling methodology that aims to eliminate these problems by providing a structured process and a tool to support your work in eliciting and organizing your projects requirements :


A systematic elicitation process

The method proceeds by discovering the stakeholders goals and by using these goals to unveil and motivate system requirements. Both bottom-up and top-down approaches are typically used to identify the stakeholders goals. Goals are hence refined from more general strategic goals to lower-level operational goals. All system requirements are identified and introduced in the model in order to meet some operational goal.



Requirements structured with Goals

This organization facilitates your navigation through the requirements base. You now have a means to see the forests for the trees...
