This paper proposes a methodology to identify and prevent/control noncompliances and conflicts arisingout of requirement attribute values during requirements management. It is intended to provide a cost-effective approach for managing noncompliances in projects that employ the requirements based engineering approach. The method involves continuous checking and monitoring of requirement attribute values using a rule-based engine concept. This methodology can serve as an enhanced feature for any commercial requirement management application software available today (such as IBM DOORS© and Seimens TcSE©).The methodology offers the following advantages:
- It enables standardization in the development and management of requirement modules.
- It decreases development and maintenance cost for requirement modules by reducing the effort needed for audits, compliance checks, rework and others.
