In this paper, we present Super State Analysis (SSA) for analyzing multiple UML state and sequence diagrams to detect inconsistencies. The SSA model uses a transition set that captures relationship information that is not specifiable in UML diagrams. The SSA model uses the transition set to link transitions of multiple state diagrams together. The analysis generates three different sets automatically. These generated sets are compared to the provided sets to detect inconsistencies. Because SSA considers multiple UML state diagrams, it discovers inconsistencies that cannot be discovered when considering only a single UML state diagram.
