Getting the requirements right is essential for good design. A currently popular technique for capturing requirements is the specification of use cases. However getting a conflict free, complete and representative set of use case descriptions can be difficult. In this paper we look at how the RECOCASE approach provides collaborative requirements RECOnciliation through the use of a computer aided software engineering (CASE) tool. In the approach, use case descriptions are entered asynchronously in natural language from individual stakeholders. The tool automatically produces a visual representation of the requirements to assist the group to identify and resolve conflicts and produce a representative requirements specification.
