This paper describes an approach for the analysis of crosscutting in model transformations in the Model Driven Architecture (MDA). Software architectures should be amenable to changes in user requirements and technological platforms. Impact analysis of changes can be based on traceability of architectural design elements. Design elements have dependencies with other software artifacts but also evolve in time. Crosscutting dependencies may have a strong influence on modifiability of software architectures. We define crosscutting based on a traceability pattern. We present an impact analysis of crosscutting dependencies in transformations rules at model level as well as at meta-model level.
