Visualising connectivity and change propagation in complex products is difficult, but nevertheless is a key for successful design. Several stakeholders, such as designers, managers and customers have different viewpoints on the designed artefact and require different information. Multiple views provide a means to visualise complex information and are also a way to fulfil the demands of different user groups. In this paper we introduce the concepts of multiple viewpoints and multiple views in engineering design and show how multiple views are integrated into a software tool for predicting change propagation.
