The design of advanced embedded control systems requires a systematic approach in handling their increasing complexity and in particular integration of the different aspects and parts of a product that are worked on by different experts. Several variants of model based approaches are today advocated to facilitate systems integration. This paper describes a number of representative efforts that address multiple concerns or views including modeling languages such as the AADL and EAST-ADL, as well as model integration platforms such as General Store, Fujaba and Toolnet. We present a characterizion of the approaches and identify basic (and common) mechanisms for integration as well as differences among the approaches.
