Abstract: This paper proposes a new dynamic and integrated model to manage the requirements collection process automatically. The result of this paper is to generate an automated requirement template that is compatible with the standard templates and enhance the process accuracy. The proposed model converts the gathered information from a selected requirement collection method into a table format. This table will be analysed using the proposed algorithm to generate a normalised table and eliminate the inconsistent requirements. This normalised table will be processed using the proposed algorithm to generate one of the standard requirement documentation templates automatically. The proposed model is tested using several requirements collection examples and shows a high accuracy compared with some manual or automatic methods.

Keywords: software requirements; requirements elicitation; requirements process.
