Knowledge about the current state of the system serves at least two purposes: it is the basis for decisions to act and adapt to ensure reliable operation and it can be used to verify the correctness of the system at runtime. Both purposes require that current information is available at runtime that can be evaluated. Thus, the system designers have to create a complex monitoring infrastructure that suits the purposes of the system. We propose a combination of proven techniques that can be used

We combine it with a model-driven approach that allows a model transformation of information contained in the requirements and design documents to implementations of observers and controllers that allow adaptation at runtime based on current information as well as runtime verification. The approach can be easily integrated into an iterative-incremental software engineering process and is illustrated with two complex case studies.
