This paper aims at boosting the level of re-use in design for automotive applications. We see as a key vehicle to achieve this goal the development of rich component models, which are expressive enough to cover the complete development cycle from high-level specifications to design models. We address in particular the need to maintain both functional and non-functional views on components, and the propagation of component viewpoints both horizontally as well as vertically.
