Analysing Policy Texts for System Capabilities
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
This paper presents a resource-efficient method for identifying system capabilities from policy content using a coding agenda. The method incorporates the inﬂuencing factors method for eliciting only those system capabilities with a positive impact on developers’ business goals. The applicability of the method is illustrated using the case of development of a household demand response system for Stockholm RoyalSeaport. In the case study, texts extracted from EU energy policy directives were used to identify household demand response system capabilities. The results showed that the system capabilities extracted were sufficiently generic to host project-speciﬁc system capabilities. This would eliminate much of the effort in tailoring system development to every individual project. For the speciﬁc case study, it also ensured that demand response system development was aligned with EU energy policy.
