Automating the Detection of Complex Semantic Conflicts Between Software Requirements

Keeping requirements consistent already at early project stages is a main success factor for software development projects. However, manual requirements conflict analysis takes significant effort and is error-prone. Requirement engineers and other project participants such as technical architects use different terminologies (due to different domain backgrounds) which makes automation of conflict analysis difficult. In this paper, the authors propose semantic approach as foundation for automating requirements conflict analysis and introduce the automated ontology-based reporting approach OntRep.
