Abstract: This paper presents an approach to formally define version management related operations and properties for models irrespective of the modeling language, the underlying data structure, tool or other technical constraints. The approach transforms models into an extremely simple format defined both as a meta-metamodel and mathematically. The operations necessary for version-management tasks are also defined formally. The approach has been implemented in Prolog and tested successfully in two large scale industrial projects. An earlier version of the first part of this paper has been published as [22].
