Developing requirements for software components, and ensuring these requirements are met by component designs, is very challenging, as very often application domain and stakeholders are not fully known during component development. We introduce a new methodology, aspect-oriented component engineering, that addresses some difficult issues of component requirements engineering by analysing and characterising components based on different aspects of the overall application a component addresses. We give an overview of the aspect-oriented component requirements engineering process, focus on component requirements analysis, specification and reasoning, and briefly discuss tool support.
