Inconsistency management in component-based languages is the identification and resolution of conflicting constraints or expectations between the different components which make up a system. Here we present a category theoretical framework for detecting and classifying those inconsistencies which can arise throughout a simulation. In addition, the framework permits us to apply techniques developed for defining database view updates. With these, we can analyse the set of traces of a system with respect to a particular behaviour in a subsystem.
