During the object-oriented software development process, a variety of models of the system is built. All these models are not independent, but they are related to each other. Elements in one model have trace dependencies to other models; they are semantically overlapping and together represent the system as a whole. In this paper we classify relationships between models along three different dimensions, proposing a formal description of them. The goal of the proposed formalization is to provide formal foundations for tools that perform intelligent analysis on models assisting software engineers through the development process. In this direction we discuss the construction of a tool, based on the formalization, supporting the verification of traces between requirement model and analysis models.
