Although Model Driven Software Development (MDSD) is achieving significant progress, it is still far from becoming a real Engineering discipline. In fact, many of the difficult problems of the engineering of complex software systems are still unresolved, or simplistically addressed by many of the existing MDSD approaches. In this paper we outline three of the currently outstanding problems of MDSD on which we are now working, and propose some hints on how they can be addressed. The challenges are: the specification of the behavioral semantics of metamodels; the addition of time to these specifications so that models can be properly animated, simulated and analyzed; and the use of viewpoints and correspondences for specifying large-scale software systems.
