Developers have to work with ever-present design-time uncertainty, i.e., Uncertainty about selecting among alternative design decisions. However, existing tools do not support working in the presence of uncertainty, forcing developers to either make provisional, premature decisions, or to avoid using the tools altogether until uncertainty is resolved. In this paper, we present a tool, called MU-MMINT, that allows developers to express their uncertainty within software artifacts and perform a variety of model management tasks such as reasoning, transformation and refinement in an interactive environment. In turn, this allows developers to defer the resolution of uncertainty, thus avoiding having to undo provisional decisions. See the companion video: http://youtu.be/kAWUm-iFatM.
