Abstract: Model driven engineering is one answer to increasing demands on software development and maintenance. Today's software systems are often large, complex but also safety-critical and should be highly adaptable in life cycle. The efficient development of large and complex software systems needs a high degree of collaboration in the design and specification phases. Well-defined, (graphical) modeling languages provide therefore a matter of communication for software engineers. Besides the distribution of development locations, the co-evolution of models and the concurrency of work are typical in global software engineering projects. This kind of collaborative modeling needs reliable integration mechanisms for co-evolved model artifacts. However, the syntactic and semantic correct (consistent) integration of concurrent evolved models is not satisfactorily supported. Especially the inconsistency identification and analyzing for merged requirement- and software architecture models is a creative, communication-intensive, and collaborative task. This paper proposes an approach for an automatic identification and analysis of syntactic and semantic inconsistencies to support distributed modelers who synchronize their parallel work.
