Summary: 
This paper proposes a method to generate alternative scenarios from a normal scenario written with a scenario language. This method includes (1) generation of alternative plans and (2) generation of alternative scenario by a user's selection of these plans. The proposed method enables users to decrease the omission of the possible alternative scenarios in the early stages of development. The method will be illustrated with some examples.
