This paper proposes a method of automatically eliciting knowledge which is used to detect feature interactions in telecommunication services. With conventional methods, the knowledge is provided manually. With the proposed method, the knowledge is automatically elicited as service constraints. In telecommunication systems, when a new service is added, new state transitions are created. In case of new service, the new state should be reached in the state transitions. On the other hand, some states of existing services should not be reached. These constraints can be considered as knowledge for detecting feature interactions. This paper also proposes a scenario for detecting feature interactions using elicited knowledge. This scenario was confirmed as effective.
