Abstract

This article describes a tradeoff analysis that can be done to select a suitable requirements prioritization method and the results of trying one method, AHP, in a case study. It is a companion article to the requirements prioritization introduction.

The tradeoff analysis and case study were conducted by a team of Carnegie Mellon graduate students under my supervision during a full-time semester-long project [Chung 06]. While results may vary from one organization to another, the discussion of how we applied the method should be of general interest.
