Neutrosophic Sets and Systems


Prioritizing software requirements is one of the most significant and complex tasks for software developers. It involves a multi-criteria decision process to balance the benefit of each requirement and its cost, considering different factors and dimensions, many of which are qualitative. Although numerous prioritization methods have been developed to date, the appropriate treatment in cases of the uncertainty and indeterminacy inherent in human decisions is limited. In the present work, the neutrosophic TOPSIS is proposed as a method of prioritizing requirements. This multi-criteria and multi-expert method uses linguistic terms associated with Single Value Neutrosophic Sets and allows the inclusion of aspects such as the importance of the criteria and the weight of expert evaluations. A case study is used to show the applicability of the proposal.
