This paper is a survey of the current viewpoint-oriented requirements approaches and a description of an alternative object-oriented viewpoint-based approach. The paper sets out a case for a multiple viewpoint-oriented approach in requirements definition and, using a simple case study, examines the viewpoint approach adopted by three requirements methodologies. The paper concludes by proposing an alternative object-oriented viewpoint-based approach.
