This paper presents the application of the Multistart point technique in order to enhance a previous existing infeasibility detection method based on Sequential Quadratic Programming (SQP) used for detecting modeling errors by finding the Minimum Intractable Subsystem (MIS) of constraints. This new method showed a great potential in detecting infeasibility without countering the problems of the initial starting point faced by many methods for Nonlinear Programming Problems. The real performance of the anticipated method is demonstrated by solving complex mechanical systems were inconsistency constraints are presented. The proposed method succeeded to find the MIS set of constraints that cause infeasibility in the these models while direct Nonlinear Programming solver, based on Sequential Quadratic Programming only, failed to detect the correct inconsistent constraints.
