Thesis Abstract / Summary:

The help provided by CASE tools in the development of software systems is very important. These tools are evolving by integrating new ways of making the job of the software engineer easier. However, manual translation of natural language (NL) requirements specification to graphical software models such as Unified Modelling Language (UML) is a complex and time-consuming task especially for novel users. This thesis intends to study and develop a module for a CASE tool that automatically translates natural language text into UML modelling diagrams typically used in software modelling. This translation is a complex and challenging task due to inherent ambiguities of NL such as English. We propose a Rule-based approach to translate natural language requirements specifications to diagrams.

Our approach enables the system to adapt to the user vocabulary and the way that s/he models software systems. The developed techniques can be employed for various applications like document summarization, software analysis and modelling, database queries generation, etc. The presented approach works as a user writes the requirements in simple English in a few paragraphs and the designed system has conspicuous ability to analyze the given script. After compound analysis and extraction of associated information, the designed system draws various UML diagrams as activity diagrams, sequence diagrams, class diagrams and Uses cases diagrams. The designed system has robust ability to create code automatically without external environment. The designed system provides a quick and reliable way to generate UML diagrams and generate respective code to save the time and budget of both the user and system analyst.
