Software modeling is an important activity for maintenance since it can facilitate the software comprehension as well as the understanding of its activities towards evolution, correction and adaptation. In this sense, maintainability and its subcharacteristics as presented in the ISO/IEC 9126 standard should be incorporated 0to the artifacts produced in the modeling activity aiming at designing software with characteristics that render its maintenance less costly. Especially in non-trivial software, such as those that are aspect-oriented, the research on maintenance process considering it during the software development is remarkable. These categories of software aim at maintainability and reusability since they provide the separation of concerns. Thus, seeking to reduce the transition effort to the artifacts generated during the Aspect-Oriented Software Development among the different abstraction levels, this paper presents a proposal of maintainability criteria for building aspect-oriented software design models based on the Maintainability Criteria for Implementation Models, on the aSideML language modeling conventions and on the ISO/IEC 9126 standard,
