In Requirements Management, ontologies are used to reconcile gaps
in the knowledge and common understanding among stakeholders during
requirement elicitation, and therefore significantly improve the quality of the
elicited requirements. However, a precondition of state-of-the-art ontology
approaches for requirements elicitation is an existing domain ontology. While
this is not a trivial precondition, there are only a few reports on approaches to
systematically and efficiently build domain ontologies, and these approaches
are often highly biased towards their intended use. In this paper, we investigate
an approach for building domain ontologies suitable for guiding requirements
elicitation. We evaluate the feasibility of the approach based on a real-world
industrial use case by analyzing natural language text from technical standards.
A major result is that the proposed approach can help reduce the effort of
building domain ontologies from the scratch.
