Consistency of Partial Process Specifications [chapter]

Maarten Steen, John Derrick, Eerke Boiten, Howard Bowman
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we analyse the notion of consistency in the context of formal process speci cation. It turns out that di erent notions of correctness give rise to di erent consistency relations.  ...  Each notion of consistency is formally characterised and placed in a spectrum of consistency relations. An example illustrates the use of these relations for consistency checking.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Guy Leduc for his comments on an earlier version of this paper.  ...

Extending Causal Consistency to any Object Defined by a Sequential Specification [article]

Achour Mostéfaoui, Matthieu Perrin, Michel Raynal
2018 arXiv   pre-print
This paper presents a simple generalization of causal consistency suited to any object defined by a sequential specification.  ...  As causality is captured by a partial order on the set of operations issued by the processes on shared objects (concurrent operations are not ordered), it follows that causal consistency allows different  ...  Acknowledgments This work has been partially supported by the Franco-German DFG-ANR Project 40300781 DISCMAT (devoted to connections between mathematics and distributed computing), and the French ANR project  ...

Formal methods for verification and validation of partial specifications: A case study

Steve Easterbrook, John Callahan
1998 Journal of Systems and Software  
We conclude that the insights gained from formalizing a specification are valuable, and it is the process of formalization, rather than the end product that is important.  ...  We describe a case study of the use of partial formal models for V&V of the requirements for Fault Detection Isolation and Recovery on the space station.  ...  Maintenance of consistency in our partial specifications became a real problem.  ...

Partial process models to manage business process variants

Emilian Pascalau, Ahmed Awad, Sherif Sakr, Mathias Weske
2011 International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management  
Our approach, Partial Process Models (PPM), is a query-based approach which maintains the link between the variant process models by means of defining process model views.  ...  Thus, dynamic evaluation for the defined queries of the process views guarantee that the process modeler is able to get up-todate and consistent status of the process model.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Clemens Rath from eBay's European Center of Excellence for his support.  ...

A framework for expressing the relationships between multiple views in requirements specification

B. Nuseibeh, J. Kramer, A. Finkelstein
1994 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
In this paper, we deploy multiple View-Points that hold partial requirements specifications, described and developed using different representation schemes and development strategies.  ...  We elaborate on some of the requirements for expressing and enacting inter-Viewpoint relationships-the vehicles for consistency checking and inconsistency management.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT We would like to gratefully acknowledge the extensive constructive comments of A. van Lamsweerde on an earlier version of this paper. Thanks are also due to S.  ...

Coordinating distributed ViewPoints: the Anatomy of a Consistency Check

Steve Easterbrook, Anthony Finkelstein, Jeff Kramer, Bashar Nuseibeh
1994 Concurrent Engineering - Research and Applications  
In this paper, we argue that striving to maintain complete consistency at all points in the development process is unnecessary, and an approach based on tolerance and management of inconsistency can be  ...  Central to this problem is the issue of managing consistency between the various elements of an emerging design.  ...  Acknowledgements The work described in this paper was partly funded by the UK Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), as part of the Advanced Technology Programme (ATP) of the Eureka Software Factory -  ...

Partition Consistency: A Case Study in Modeling Systems with Weak Memory Consistency and Proving Correctness of their Implementations [article]

Steven Cheng, Lisa Higham, Jalal Kawash
2013 arXiv   pre-print
This paper provides a case study of this process. We specify a new model, partition consistency, that generalizes many existing consistency models.  ...  Therefore, formal specification of the implementation or architecture is necessary, and proofs of correspondence between the abstract and the concrete models are required.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada through discovery grant number 41900-07.  ...

The Use of Partial Correlation to Control Halo in Performance Ratings

Kevin W. Mossholder, William F. Giles
1983 Educational and Psychological Measurement  
Internal Consistency and the Partialing Process Although Landy et al. (1980) formally proposed the partialing procedures, it was previously used by Holzbach (1978) toward the same end.  ...  Finally, because of the relatively similar effect of the partialing process on within- and between- dimension correlations, a ‘‘good’’ residuals factor structure with acceptable internal consistencies  ...
