Modern software-based systems, like industrial automation systems typically involve the cooperation of several engineering fields, e.g., mechanical, electrical, and software engineering. The authors call this kind of co-operation "(Software+) engineering projects", as software engineering increasingly provides added value to the resulting software-intensive systems and also depends on the seamless collaboration with all other systems engineering disciplines. In (software+) engineering projects a wide range of heterogeneous tools and data models are used by the engineers, which make early defect detection challenging due to semantic and technical gaps between the selected tools and data models.
