Formulating Model Verification Tasks Prover-Independently as UML Diagrams [chapter]

Martin Gogolla, Frank Hilken, Philipp Niemann, Robert Wille
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The success of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) relies on the quality of the employed models. Thus, quality assurance through validation and verification has a tradition within MDE.  ...  We propose to formulate verifications tasks in terms of the used modeling language itself, e.g. with UML and OCL.  ...  So far UML diagrams in combination with OCL expressions have not been used as a means for formulating dedicated structural and behavioral verification tasks.  ...

2019 Journal of Communications  
This paper presents an approach combining UML and Event-B. In fact, we focus in this work on modeling the systems behavior with the joint use of some UML behavioral diagrams.  ...  The UML models are then translated into Event-B models for the systems validation as well as the verification of safety properties using B tools.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT This work is supported by PRESCOM (Global safety proofs for modular design/PREuves de Sé curité globale pour la COnception Modulaire) as a part of IRT Railenium projects in collaboration  ...

An Spin / Promela Application for Model checking UML Sequence Diagrams

Cristian L. Vidal-Silva, Rodolfo Villarroel, Jos´e Rubio, Franklin Johnson, Erika Madariaga, Camilo Campos, Luis Carter
2018 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
UML sequence diagrams usually represent the behavior of systems execution.  ...  UML sequence diagrams applications are often on the requirement and design phases of the software development process, and their correctness guarantees the accurate and transparent implementation of software  ...  Automated verification of UML sequence diagrams' correctness is necessary because they can model critical algorithmic behaviors of information systems.  ...

Formalization of UML use case diagram-a Z notation based approach

Sabnam Sengupta, Swapan Bhattacharya
2006 2006 International Conference on Computing & Informatics  
Development of a tool based on this approach will produce a visual representation of a formalized UML use case diagram, from which automated traceability and verification of the design phase can be achieved  ...  Therefore, it is not possible to automate the verification of tracking requirements captured in a use case diagram in the design phase.  ...  In this paper, we propose to formalize UML use case diagram based on which automated traceability and verification in the design phase can be achieved. III.  ...

Verification of the Correctness in Composed UML Behavioural Diagrams [chapter]

Samir Ouchani, Otmane Ait Mohamed, Mourad Debbabi, Makan Pourzandi
2010 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
In this paper, a verification methodology of a composition of UML behavioural diagrams (State Machine, Activity Diagram, and Sequence Diagram) is proposed.  ...  This operator provides an elegant way to define the combination of different kind of UML diagrams.  ...  At the beginning of the verification part, we have a set of separated UML behavioral diagrams, for this reason we have to extract their corresponding semantic models (CTS) separately, and based on their  ...

Validation: Conceptual versus Activity Diagram Approaches

Sabah Al-Fedaghi
2021 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
In UML specifications, validation verifies the correctness of UML diagrams against any constraints and rules defined within the model.  ...  This paper focuses on the notion of validation using activity diagrams and contrasts that process with a proposed method that involves an informal validation procedure.  ...  One of the goals of the Foundational UML Subset (fUML [12] ) is to provide a well-defined execution of UML activity diagrams.  ...

Verifying dynamic aspects of UML models

M Soeken, R Wille, R Drechsler
2011 2011 Design, Automation & Test in Europe  
However, most of them focus only on the static view of a UML model. In this paper, an automatic approach is presented which checks verification tasks for dynamic aspects of a UML model.  ...  The underlying verification problem is encoded as an instance of the satisfiability problem and subsequently solved using a SAT Modulo Theory solver.  ...  A class diagram comprises a UML model, which can be used e.g. to describe the structure of a system. An instantiation of a UML model is called a system state and is visualized by an object diagram.  ...
