Tamagotchis need not die — Verification of statemate designs [chapter]

Udo Brockmeyer, Gunnar Wittich
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Designs are translated into finite state machines which are optimized and then verified by symbolic model checking.  ...  If the model checker generates a counterexample, it is retranslated into either a symbolic timing diagram or a stimulus for the STATEMATE simulator.  ...  We thank our project partners AHL, i-Logix and SIEMENS for providing the tools and for discussions. Furthermore we thank our project partners BMW, British Aerospace and FZI for the case studies.  ...

Requirements-Level Semantics and Model Checking of Object-Oriented Statecharts

Rik Eshuis, David N. Jansen, Roel Wieringa
2002 Requirements Engineering  
In this paper we define a requirements-level execution semantics for object-oriented statecharts and show how properties of a system specified by these statecharts can be model checked using tool support  ...  for model checkers.  ...  NuSMV is a symbolic model checker, which can be given a much more efficient input by encoding our LTS semantics symbolically, using the input language of NuSMV optimally.  ...

Statechart: A Visual Language for Workflow Specification

Wendy Wenhui Zhang, Theresa Beaubouef, Huilin Ye
2012 Journal of clean energy technologies  
This paper presents a tutorial of the Statechart visual language and how it can be used for workflow specification.  ...  The need for workflow management has become readily apparent in recent years, and in order to manage various business workflow features, a conceptual modeling or specification of workflow is paramount.  ...  In particular, Wodtke and Weikum [14] validate Statechart properties by means of reach-ability tests [10] and symbolic model checking [18] .  ...

2012 Proceedings of the Workshop on Model-Driven Engineering, Verification and Validation - MoDeVVa '12  
When applied to Statecharts, a model-based formalism for reactive systems, symbolic execution can determine all feasible paths through a model up to a specified bound and generate input sequences exercising  ...  This paper describes two efforts to improve the performance of symbolic execution within our previously developed framework for Statechart analysis.  ...  for other Statechart like modeling languages as well.  ...

Extending CTL with Actions and Real Time

D. N. Jansen
2002 Journal of Logic and Computation  
In this paper, we present the logic ATCTL, which is intended to be used for model checking models that have been specified in a lightweight version of the Unified Modelling Language (UML).  ...  Elsewhere, we have defined a formal semantics for LUML to describe the models.  ...  Latella, Majzik and Massink [15] model check UML statecharts using SPIN (a LTL model checker). Their statechart semantics, however, does not handle real time. Damm et al.  ...
