Modelling approaches have to satisfy certain criteria in order to sufficiently encompass the characteristics of dependable heterogenous multi- and many-core system architectures. This work-in-progress paper gives an overview of modern modelling approaches and their related research projects, particularly those regarding domain specific architecture description languages, as well as of the specific challenges of dependable systems and heterogenous multi- and many-core designs, i.e. scheduling techniques for real-time requirements and concerns regarding functional safety. Furthermore, an ongoing research effort in order to identify a set of criteria for evaluating the eligibility of modelling approaches for the task of adequately representing these systems and their specific characteristics is presented.
