Abstract: Extremely significant phase of SDLC is Requirement Engineering . Building of software and its functionalities successfully is exclusively based on the requirements gathered from the user of the project. The accomplishment of the end product has direct relationship with this Requirement Phase. Requirement Prioritization Process (one of the process) in the Requirement Engineering phase supports the engineers to work out and identify the prioritization among the requirements. From the available methods to prioritize the requirement, AHP is viable but not for large size projects. This work primarily concentrated on applying AHP for bigger projects. In this paper, we constructed a framework to prioritize the requirements with AHP considering Implementation Simplicity for Large Scale project, reduced number of comparisons and precise Stakeholder’s Participation. The proposed framework has been assessed through an exploratory case study that has fixed number of requirements and the status after the arrival of new requirements to the priority list. This is to know about the actuality of the proposed framework, which has been conducted in a software company. The main findings and lessons erudite from the effort are presented.
