Identification and resolution of aspectual conflicts should be handled at the requirements level, before major design decisions are made. Treating conflicting situations this early facilitates negotiation among stakeholders. The Aspect-Oriented Requirements Analysis (AORA) approach offers HAM (Hybrid Assessment Method), a technique for the resolution of conflicts between concerns that contribute negatively to each other and have the same importance. HAM uses a multi-criteria decision method to support the resolution of these conflicts and extends this treatment to conflicts between concerns triggered by stakeholders with contradictory interests on a set of concerns. An example taken from the Crisis Management System case study is used to illustrate HAM’s potential support for treating concerns during composition.
