This paper presents an effort in integrating optimization modeling with data analytics in a goal-oriented requirements engineering KAOS method. We developed a step by step guidelines to produce a complete model, including goal, responsibility, operation, and object modeling. We analyzed and elaborated the method through two industry examples. All of this was done with the additional constraint to develop antifragile models that can capture realistic assumptions and can adapt to change especially in unexpected circumstances.
