The impact of non-functional requirements (NFRs)over software systems has been widely documented. Consequently, cost-effective software production method shall provide means to integrate this type of requirements into the development process. In this vision paper we analyze this assumption over a particular type of software production
paradigm: model-driven development (MDD). We report first the current state of MDD approaches with respect to NFRs and remark that, in general, NFRs are not addressed in MDD methods and processes, and we discuss the effects of this situation. Next, we outline a general framework that integrates
NFRs into the core of the MDD process and provide a detailed comparison among all the MDD approaches considered. Last, we identify some research issues related to this framework.
