These models represent particular views of the problem domain, we propose
that a number of data components within the models are alias components, ie
the same problem domain component but with different semantics and
representations in each model.
As development proceeds, domain information
is often updated, typically from within whatever tool is currently in use.
tool can maintain its internal model consistency however, in order for inter-
model consistency to be preserved.
Any changes must be propagated across all
relevant alias components.
In the absence of consistent change propagation, we
have a set of models that are no longer consistent in reflecting the state of our
knowledge of the system.
As development proceeds these inconsistencies
should be discovered, but possibly only after considerable economic...
