A Property-Driven Approach to Formal Verification of Process Models [chapter]

Benoît Combemale, Xavier Crégut, Pierre-Loïc Garoche, Xavier Thirioux, Francois Vernadat
2008 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
More and more, models, through Domain Specific Languages (DSL), tend to be the solution to define complex systems.  ...  We specify a models transformation to Petri Nets and LTL formulae for both the process model and its associated temporal properties.  ...  A model transformation to Petri nets is given and allows to apply model checking on an observational abstraction of the trace semantics of the given model with respect to the properties.  ...

Formal Aspects of Enterprise Modeling Methods: A Comparison Framework

Domenik Bork, Hans-Georg Fill
2014 2014 47th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
The resulting models also provide value through acting as knowledge bases themselves.  ...  Thereby, the formalization of modeling methods is essential to unambiguously define their structure, behavior, and semantics, and enable an intersubjective understanding and machine-processability.  ...  The procedure models are based on high-level Petri nets, which are extended to a Horus specific variant denoted as XML nets.  ...

Towards xMOF

Tanja Mayerhofer, Philip Langer, Manuel Wimmer
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 workshop on Domain-specific modeling - DSM '12  
When defining a domain-specific modeling language (DSML), the two key components that have to be specified are its syntax and semantics.  ...  To overcome this limitation, we propose to integrate fUML with MOF to enable the specification of the behavioral semantics for DSMLs in terms of fUML activities.  ...  Figure 2 . 2 Metamodel of Petri Net DSML Figure 3 . 3 Semantics specification of Petri Net DSML using fUML http://www.omg.org/spec/FUML  ...

Semantic Equations for Formal Models in the Model-Driven Architecture [chapter]

Paulo Barbosa, Franklin Ramalho, Jorge Figueiredo, Anikó Costa, Luís Gomes, Antônio Junior
2010 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
For instance, we claim that in the scenario of model transformations involving concurrent models described using Petri nets, semantic concepts can be more easily and appropriately handled in the MDA architecture  ...  Semantic equations are important pieces of the denotational semantics approach that enable the translation of syntactic constructs of models to semantic domains.  ...  This work was partially supported by the collaborative project Verificação Semântica em Transformações MDA Envolvendo Modelos de Redes de Petri (MDA-VERITAS -Semantic Verification in MDA Transformation  ...

Metamodeling Mathematics: A Precise and Visual Framework for Describing Semantics Domains of UML Models [chapter]

Dániel Varró, András Pataricza
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As UML 2.0 is evolving into a family of languages with individually specified semantics, there is an increasing need for automated and provenly correct model transformations that (i) assure the integration  ...  of local views (different diagrams) of the system into a consistent global view, and, (ii) provide a wellfounded mapping from UML models to different semantic domains (Petri nets, Kripke automaton, process  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Gergely Varró, John Rushby and many of his colleagues at SRI International for their valuable comments.  ...

Toward on-demand wafer fab simulation using formal structure & behavior models

Edward Huang, Ky Sang Kwon, Leon McGinnis
2008 2008 Winter Simulation Conference  
The method for achieving this combines formal fab descriptive models with a process for generating fab analysis models from relatively standard sources of fab data. 2341 978-1-4244-2708-6/08/$25.00  ...  Contemporary factories in capital intensive industries such as semiconductor manufacturing are very complex, with many sources of risk.  ...  Both the conceptual model and its realization are based on a formal language (in our case, on OMG SysML) and the use of the language to define specific semantics for the wafer fab domain.  ...

Prototyping domain-specific language semantics

Daniel A. Sadilek
2008 Companion to the 23rd ACM SIGPLAN conference on Object oriented programming systems languages and applications - OOPSLA Companion '08  
Domain-specific languages (DSLs) need semantics. For an external, executable, metamodel-based DSL, this can be done in an operational or a translational way.  ...  Equivalence of operational semantics described with different languages can be tested by comparing execution traces.  ...  DSLs use concepts of and a notation established in a specific domain.  ...
