Abstract. This paper proposes the adoption of a goal-based method called
GBRAM for facilitating the process of building taxonomies of COTS
components. Since GBRAM was defined in a different setting, the main result
of the paper is to adapt it to this new context obtaining the GBTCM method.
We show how the different activities and artifacts of GBRAM change, and
we apply the proposal to obtain a taxonomy for requirements engineering
oriented tools.
1 Introduction
The use of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components (hereafter, COTS) as
parts of larger systems has grown steadily [1, 2]. The process of developing systems
from COTS is an economic and strategic need in a wide variety of different
application areas. As a result, a huge amount of COTS have become accessible in the
