Component-based development (CBD) and model based engineering (MBE) approaches support reusability, and analyzability in the development of predictable embedded systems at reduced costs. Nevertheless, there are still many challenges, concerning the design and analysis of component-based systems behavioral models, awaiting solutions. Here, we present a research proposal outlining the related research plan, ongoing research activities leading to the completion of a licentiate thesis. The research work, underlying the thesis, includes a formal semantics of the ProCom component model, higher level reusable specifications of component behaviors, and verification of behavior consistency across different abstractions of the system behavior. The research results are validated through case studies. The research is conducted in the context of PROGRESS research centre for predictable embedded software systems. In this licentiate thesis proposal, we briefly describe our main research contributions, together with a detailed time-plan of the remaining work.
