Abstract—This paper proposes a methodology that transform Use Case diagram into BPMN diagram using GORE technique. The success of software projects depends upon the stakeholder requirements satisfaction and support for organizations business process. Use Cases is one of the most commonly used notations to elicit requirements from an actor’s point of view. Business process modelling notation (BPMN) is commonly used to model organizational business processes and to effectively communicate and conceptualize configuration of processes to relevant stakeholders. Hence, there is a need to be able to transform actors’ goals and objectives into operational business processes and vice versa. Goal oriented requirement engineering (GORE) suggests analysing high level goals of the system to contextualize business processes. This paper argues that both Use cases and BPMN should be contextualized and should coevolve.

Index Terms—BPMN, GORE, UML use case, business process modelling, transformation, requirements elicitation.
