Existing approaches to modelling software systems all too often neglect the issue of component-mismatch identification and resolution. The traditional view of software development overemphasises synthesis at the expense of analysis; the latter frequently being seen as problem which only needs to be dealt with during the integration stage towards the end of a development project. The paper discusses two software modelling and analysis techniques, all tool supported, and emphasises the vital role analysis can play in identifying and resolving risks early on. The work also combines model based development (e.g. architectural modelling) with component based development (e.g. COTS and legacy system), and shows how their mismatch-detection capabilities complement one another to provide a more comprehensive coverage of development risks
