Natural language and diagrams of various types are commonly used for specifications on digital systems containing descriptions and requirements. The objective of the research reported here is to develop an algorithm for the automatic integration of requirements using schemata to aid in the automatic detection and joining of common references (coreferences) to objects in natural language and other specifications. This paper describes a rule-based algorithm for the integration of requirements
