Although tremendous progress has been made in Artificial Intelligence (AI), it entails new challenges. The growing complexity of learning tasks requires more complex AI components, which increasingly exhibit unreliable behaviour. In this book, we present a model-driven approach to model architectural safeguards for AI components and analyse their effect on the overall system reliability.

This cumulative habilitation thesis, proposes concepts for (i) modelling and analysing dependability based on architectural models of software-intensive systems early in development, (ii) decomposition and composition of modelling languages and analysis techniques to enable more flexibility in evolution, and (iii) bridging the divergent levels of abstraction between data of the operation phase, architectural models and source code of the development phase.

Business processes and information systems evolve constantly and affect each other in non-trivial ways. Aligning security requirements between both is a challenging task. This work presents an automated approach to extract access control requirements from business processes with the purpose of transforming them into a) access permissions for role-based access control and b) architectural data flow constraints to identify violations of access control in enterprise application architectures.

Software vendors must consider confidentiality especially while creating software architectures because decisions made here are hard to change later. Our approach represents and analyzes data flows in software architectures. Systems specify data flows and confidentiality requirements specify limitations of data flows. Software architects use detected violations of these limitations to improve the system. We demonstrate how to integrate our approach into existing development processes.

Developing variable systems faces many challenges. Dependencies between interrelated artifacts within a product variant, such as code or diagrams, across product variants and across their revisions quickly lead to inconsistencies during evolution. This work provides a unification of common concepts and operations for variability management, identifies variability-related inconsistencies and presents an approach for view-based consistency preservation of variable systems.

Die modellbasierte Performancevorhersage ist ein bekanntes Konzept zur Gewährleistung der Softwarequalität. Derzeitige Ansätze basieren auf einem Modell mit einer Metrik, was zu ungenauen Vorhersagen für moderne Architekturen führt.
In dieser Arbeit wird ein Multi-Strategie-Ansatz zur Erweiterung von Performancevorhersagemodellen zur Unterstützung von Multicore-Architekturen vorgestellt, in Palladio implementiert und dadurch die Genauigkeit der Vorhersage deutlich verbessert.
Model-based performance prediction is a well-known concept to ensure the quality of software.
This thesis presents a multi-strategies approach to extend performance prediction models to support multicore architectures.We implemented the strategies into Palladio and significantly increased the performance prediction power.

IoT applications perceive and interact with the environment via smart devices and cloud services. When operating such applications one is faced with the challenge of configuring the smart devices and the cloud services in a manner, which achieves a high data quality at low operational costs. This work supports IoT operators with IoT collection strategies and cost optimization functions for data qualities, which are influenced by the interplay of smart device and cloud service configurations.

Complex software systems are described with multiple artifacts, such as code, design diagrams and others. Ensuring their consistency is crucial and can be automated with transformations for pairs of artifacts. We investigate how developers can combine independently developed and reusable transformations to networks that preserve consistency between more than two artifacts. We identify synchronization, compatibility and orchestration as central challenges, and we develop approaches to solve them.

When models of a system change, analyses based on them have to be reevaluated in order for the results to stay meaningful. In many cases, the time to get updated analysis results is critical. This thesis proposes multiple, combinable approaches and a new formalism based on category theory for implicitly incremental model analyses and transformations. The advantages of the implementation are validated using seven case studies, partially drawn from the Transformation Tool Contest (TTC).

To understand the problems in metamodeling, this work presents an investigation of bad smells in metamodels. The core contribution of this work is the reference structure. It enables design, evolution, and extension of metamodels for modeling languages used for quality analysis. Applying the reference structure yields a modular metamodel. To be able to couple the metamodel modules in a meaningful way, this book investigates metamodel extension mechanisms.
