Domain-specific modeling languages (DSML) proved to be an important asset in creating powerful design tools for domain experts. Although these tools are capable of preserving the syntax-correctness of models even during free-hand editing, they often lack the ability of maintaining model consistency for complex language-specific constraints. Hence, there is a need for a tool-level automatism to assist DSML users in resolving consistency violation problems. In this paper, we describe an approach for the automatic generation of quick fixes for DSMLs, taking a set of domain-specific constraints and model manipulation policies as input. The computation relies on statespace exploration techniques to find sequences of operations that decrease the number of inconsistencies. Our approach is illustrated using a BPMN case study, and it is evaluated by several experiments to show its feasibility and performance.
