Conflict analysis and conflict resolution play an important role in negotiation during contract-management situations in government and industry. The problem to be solved is how to model conflict situations where there is uncertainty about agreement, neutrality and disagreement among agents in a conflict situation. The solution to this problem includes modeling a conflict situation relative to basic binary relations on a universe of agents, introducing a measure of the degree of conflict, and

The basic approach to modeling conflict situations is illustrated in the context of contract negotiation during the initial phases of requirement negotiation for a systems engineering project. An example of a high-level requirements negotiation for an automated lighting system is presented. The contribution of this paper is a rough set based requirements determination model using a conflict relation for representing requirements agreements (or disagreements).
