This paper presents a decision support system speciﬁcation in the form of business use cases and a stereotyped
conceptual model based on the speciﬁcation. The use cases
are based on generic user requirements and address cognitive biases. The speciﬁcation can be used to set ﬁxed and
common terms among the project participants.
Semiautomatic generation of the conceptual model is
demonstrated with mixed results. While there are some
shortcomings in the parsing and the result is dependent on
the phrasing conventions used in the use cases, the conceptual model highlights the most essential entities in the domain and provides a base for further development phases.
