Abstract

Abstract KJ method, which was developed for creative thinking, uses cards for making a conceptual map from brainstorming. A card-handling editor for supporting the method is presented and was used for analysing requirements of software. The most important effect of using the editor is that not only the relations between the brainstormed matters but also what is lacking in them can be found. The editor is found to be a very useful tool for recording the creative thinking process, and can be used afterwards for interpreting the specification which is a result of the requirement analysis.
