Since requirements analysts do not have sufficient knowledge on a
problem domain, i.e. domain knowledge, the technique how to make up for lacks
of domain knowledge is a key issue. This paper proposes the usage of a domain
ontology as domain knowledge during requirements elicitation processes and a
supporting tool based on this technique. In addition, we had several experiments
to show the usefulness of our tool.
