Using the Concept of Viewpoints in Requirements Engineering
Almost 20 years ago I wrote a thesis on the use of Viewpoints in Requirements Elicitation. It was one of the first works that explored the idea of using different viewpoints for better understanding software requirements. It stands on the shoulders of two giants: SADT and Core, but it went further as to use automation in the process of using different viewpoints and perspectives to elicit more sound requirements.
I am making the original text available. I will also use this space as to gather work related to the topic.
Please fell free to comment. I will moderate the comments, and may comment on some of them. The intention of this space is to foster debate as well as to serve as a reference on the topic.

My definition stands still: from pages 50 and 51.
