This paper discusses the notion of, and outlines requirements for Viewpoint-based Environments. These are next-generation CASE environments, which support the specification of requirements from multiple perspectives or so-called viewpoints. Requirements for such environments are mainly concerned with the detection and management of interference between viewpoints. Viewpoint-based Environments should also support the cooperation of multiple developers and maintain development histories in terms of multiple viewpoint versions. We briefly sketch an architecture for such environments and outline a research agenda for developing them.
