Abstract

In the Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) field, the quality assurance of the involved models is fundamental for performing correct model transformations and generating final software applications. To evaluate the quality of models, defect detection is usually performed by means of reading techniques that are manually applied. Thus, new approaches to automate the defect detection in models are needed. To fulfill this need, this paper presents a tool that implements a novel approach for automatic defect detection, which is based on a model-based functional size measurement procedure. This tool detects defects related to the correctness and the consistency of the models. Thus, our contribution lays in the new approach presented and its automation for the detection of defects in MDE environments.
