The paper presents a concept of a requirement management system for ICT projects. The system (further referenced as the CARM framework) makes use of semantic networks by expressing requirements through ontologies. Architecture and details about the system and its use are described. An aspect of using the model-view-controller pattern for designing requirement management systems is also presented.
