One of the most critical problems in software maintenance and evolution is propagating changes. Although many approaches have been proposed, automated change propagation is still a significant technical challenge in software engineering. In this paper we present an agent-oriented change propagation framework based on fixing inconsistencies when primary changes are made to design models. A core piece of the framework is a new method for generating repair plans from OCL constraints that restrict these models.
