In many fields, it has been found necessary to take account of many ways of looking at some subject matter. Multiplicity appears in various guises in software engineering: view integration in software development environments, the multi-paradigm development and N-version programming. Multiplicity also appears in other areas such as data base design, distributed artificial intelligence, belief systems, and distributed problem-solving. The use of viewpoints in requirements engineering is an emerging area of research. This paper establishes the context for viewpoint-based requirements engineering and then gives a critical review of the existing methods. A viewpoint method is seen here as a requirements engineering process of identifying viewpoints, reasoning within a viewpoint, reasoning between different viewpoints, and revising a viewpoint.
