Abstract: Requirements engineering is one of the most important issues in systems development. Whether it is software or hardware systems or embedded systems, the need for well-defined requirements remains the same. The ultimate success or failure of developing a system stems largely from the initial definition and management of its requirements. However, despite the efforts that have been made, a coherent and easily understood process that leads from the requirements to correct implementations is still an open research issue, which seeks alternative promising approaches. To this end, in this paper, we propose a requirements engineering approach based on Semantics. It provides a novel mechanism that combines semantics, ontologies, and appropriate NLP techniques. The ultimate goal is to propose a framework that will include the minimum consistent set of formalities and languages to determine the requirements and perform the necessary verifications.
