Abstract. The article provides an overview of different approaches to the methods of conflict analysis that are inspired by the model of Zdzis\l{}aw Pawlak. In the first part of the paper, Pawlak's original model is described. In the second part, the model proposed by Skowron and Deja is discussed. In the third part, the model proposed by the authors is presented
