Abstract

One of the most important issues in a software development project is the requirements prioritization. This task is used to indicate an order for the implementation of the requirements. This problem has uncertain aspects, therefore Fuzzy Logic concepts can be used to properly represent and tackle the task. The objective of this work is to present a formal framework to aid the decision making in prioritizing requirements in a software development process, including ambiguous and vague data.
