Welcome to the User Requirements Notation (URN) Wiki!


User Requirements Notation (URN)

URN is intended for the elicitation, analysis, specification, and validation of requirements. It is also applicable to business process modelling. URN combines two complementary views: one for goals provided by the Goal-oriented Requirement Language (GRL) and one for scenarios provided by the Use Case Map (UCM) notation.
