In the context of software model-driven development, artifacts are specified by several models describing different aspects, e.g., different views, dynamic behavior, structure, distributed information, etc. Then, maintaining and repairing consistency of the whole specification are crucial issues if the models can be separately developed and updated. Model Synchronization is the process of restoring consistency after the update of one or several of the models. In the present work, we approach

Specifically, based on the Triple Graph Grammar approach, we propose an incremental algorithm CSynch for solving conflicts and repairing consistency. In addition, we identify and formalize when a synchronizing solution can be considered adequate and show that our procedure CSynch is sound and complete.
