With the improvements of technologies, software systems have been more complex then ever before. This requires new approaches to improve software development processes so that they sufficiently and efficiently meet these challenges. Requirement engineering in this regard facing many problems in which conflicts resolution gained very little popularity. In this paper we present motivation toward requirement conflicts resolution and discuss how resolution techniques from other domains can be applied in this area. We also proposed a new approach for conflicts resolution based on the idea of genetic algorithm. This model is applied to a case study to demonstrate how systematically resolution process can be optimized.


Key words: Genetic algorithm, conflict resolution, requirement engineering.
