Design processes in chemical engineering are inherently complex. Various aspects of the plant to be designed are modeled in different logical documents using heterogeneous tools. There are a lot of fine-grained dependencies between the contents of these documents. Thus, if one document is changed, these changes have to be propagated to all dependent documents in order to restore mutual consistency. In current development processes, these dependencies and the resulting consistency relationships… CONTINUE READING
