Detection of an Incompatibility Conflict

  Detecting an incompatibility conflict requires more knowledge and is usually a more complicated task than detecting criticism conflicts.

There are three possible cases, conflicts about a single entity where the targets of two agents are the same entity (figure 6.1a), conflicts involving different entities within a parameter block (figure 6.1b), and conflicts between entities across parameter blocks (figure 6.1c).
