Model transformations (MTs) are central artifacts in model-driven engineering (MDE) because they define core operations on models. Like other software artifacts, MTs are also subject to human error and, thus, may possess defects (or bugs). Several MDE tools provide basic support for debugging to aid developers in locating and removing defects. In this paper, I describe my investigation into the application of omniscient debugging features to enhance stepwise execution support for MTs.
