Model Transformation

Program-Transformation.Org: The Program Transformation Wiki
Model transformation is the equivalent of program transformation, but applied to models instead of programs. This encompasses design models (e.g., UML diagrams), architectural descriptions, requirements specifications and many more. Needless to say, many of the techniques that are used for program transformation can also be applied in the context of model transformation.

Model refactoring is a specific kind of model transformation, namely the application of refactoring techniques to models instead of programs.
