Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) technologies aim to support the growing complexity of software systems. Models are increasingly becoming large and unmanageable, and hence difficult to be understood by humans and processed by machines. As a consequence, multi-user environments are necessary to enable designers to create and refine large models in a collaborative manner enabling the engineering, modularization and reuse. In this paper, we propose a model-driven approach to represent, manage and manipulate models edited in a collaborative manner. In particular, we propose to represent the solutions space (i.e, model versions) in an intensional manner by adopting a model with uncertainty. We define a plan to manage the uncertainty by selecting the desired design, to manipulate their collaborative models in manually or automatic way, and to exploit a collaborative environment for real time multi-user editing. The approach is showed by means of a motivating example that involves business models demonstrating the advantages of the proposed approach.
