Based on a novel multi-phases process, a new use case patterns catalogue is constructed. This catalogue is then utilised as a framework for a new use case patterns-driven approach for requirement engineering. The application of the proposed approach in a TestWarehouse environment showed promising results in saving up to 30% of the total software development project time, yet the resulted requirements models showed high, 85%95%, completeness percentage. Furthermore, the application of an automated version of the proposed approach saved an extra 43% of the time saved by its manual application. This had direct implications on improving requirements and design deliverables of agile software development processes. Nevertheless, users raised a number of concerns that have been considered to outline prospective phases of this research.
