Abstract—Agile software development has been used widely because it best fits projects with dynamic environments. It is an iterative and continuous process that delivers product functionalities in small increments. That enables the stakeholders to better understand their needs hence and reach their satisfaction by building the right product. Requirements prioritization (RP) is an essential phase in requirements engineering. It helps in figuring out the real requirements that are necessary to be implemented. This is important due to the limitations and constraints of any project such as budget and release date. The goal is to select the requirements that definitely maximizing customer satisfaction simultaneously meeting the restrictions such as budget and deadline. This paper proposes a model that covers the most effective RP factors based on a comparison study for existing models. The study was conducted after reviewing the literature of three models. Our model combines the most beneficial factors to enhance the RP process. Beside the model, RP technique is proposed so it can be used within the proposed model.

Index Terms—Agile development, requirements prioritization, requirements prioritization factors, requirements prioritization techniques.
