Abstract: We present an approach and a tool to analyze the consistency of UML class and statechart diagrams containing state invariants automatically. UML class diagrams describe the structure of a system as a collection of classes while UML statechart diagrams describe its behavior. State invariants relate the active state configuration of a statechart with object instances described in a class diagram. We consider a UML statechart inconsistent if it contains unsatisfiable state invariants, that is, there are no object instances that can make a given invariant evaluate to true. To detect such inconsistencies, we translate a UML model containing class and statechart diagrams into the Web Ontology Language (OWL 2), and then use OWL 2 reasoning tools to infer the consistency and satisfiability of the translated diagrams. The approach is supported by an automatic translation tool and existing OWL 2 reasoners. We demonstrate our approach with an example design and evaluate its performance using lar ge UML models.
