Abstract One of the main challenges in software integration is to overcome interface incompatibilities. Integration specialists are confronted with different semantic, structural, behavioral, communication and property mismatches. We developed an MDA-based theoretical framework to address these aspects by systematically modeling integration projects at the CIM, PSM and PIM levels in order to achieve automatic analysis, code generation and integration. However, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) frequently have problems to apply such methodology due to the high complexity of general purpose modeling tools like UML tools, and of ontology editors in the context of semantic enhancement of MDA-based tools. Our development of the MBIF tool set (Model-Based Integration Framework) takes care of this 'conditio-sine-qua-non' requirement in SMEs with available staff under daily business pressure. In this paper we describe data- and function-oriented semantic enrichment of integration models and the semantic conflict analysis which discovers matchings between model elements with respect to semantic process requirements. The solution of MBIF´s semantic annotation and integration tool set was designed under the 'small is beautiful' philosophy.
