Needs Analysis: The Case of Flexible Constraints and Mutable Boundaries
Dorrit Billman, NASA Ames Research Center San Jose State University, USA
Feary Michael, NASA Ames Research Center, USA
Schreckengost Debra, TRAClabs, USA
Sherry Lance, George Mason University, USA

We develop needs analysis methods/tools, particularly for domains with mutable or unknown constraints (planning for the space station). Recommended: iterative capture of high-level tasks and of work constraints; complementary representations.
