    Global Software Development (GSD) considers the coordinated activity of software development that is not localized and central but geographically distributed. To support coordination among sites, usually it is aimed to adopt the same development and execution platform. Unfortunately, adopting a single platform might not be always possible due to technical or organizational constraints of the different sites in GSD projects. As such, very often GSD projects have to cope with portability and interoperability problems. To address these problems we propose to apply model-driven architecture design (MDA) approach. For this we present a common metamodel of GSD that we have derived from a systematic domain analysis process. The meta-model enhances the understanding of GSD, is used to define platform independent models of GSD architecture, and transform platform independent models to platform specific models.
