The Unified Modeling Language (UML), with its 14 different diagram types, is the de-facto standard modeling language for object-oriented software modeling and documentation. Since the various UML diagrams describe different views of one and only one, software system under development, they strongly depend on each other in many ways. In other words, the UML diagrams describing a software system must be consistent. Inconsistencies between these diagrams may be a source of faults during software development and analysis. It is therefore paramount that these inconsistencies be detected, analyzed and-hopefully-fixed.
