The first step of the development of a complex system usually involves many people, each having its own requirements about that system. The point is that these different sets of requirements have to be merged in order to get a single set of requirements, the one that will be used as the basis for the development of the system. The most crucial problems in this phase are first to identify conflicts between requirements and then to handle them. This paper describes a method for merging conflictual requirements based on a majority attitude. This method aims to simulate a kind of vote between people who provide the different sets of requirements. A query evaluator, based on this method, has been implemented and it is illustrated on an example.
