As software systems have grown large and complex in the last fewyears, the problems with which Model-Driven Development has to cope haveincreased at the same pace. In particular, the need to improve the performanceand scalability of model transformations has become a critical issue. In previouswork we introduced LinTra, a model transformation platform for the parallel ex-ecution of out-place model transformations. Nevertheless, in-place model trans-formations are required in several contexts and domains as well. In this paper wediscuss the fundamentals of in-place model transformations in the light of theirparallel execution and provide LinTra with an in-place execution mode.
