Harnessing Theories for Tool Support

Zhiming Liu, Vladimir Mencl, Anders P. Ravn, Lu Yang
2006 Second International Symposium on Leveraging Applications of Formal Methods, Verification and Validation (isola 2006)  
In order to know where such add-ins will fit, we investigate the use of an existing successful commercial tool and identify suitable places for adding formally supported checking, transformation and generation  ...  Software development tools need to support more and more phases of the entire development process, because applications must be developed more correctly and efficiently.  ...  The theoretical frameworks supporting such a design process are usually referred to as correctness by design. rCOS supports correctness by design.  ...

The highs and lows of deploying Formal Methods in Industry

Guy H. Broadfoot
2014 Electronic Communications of the EASST  
In spite advances in formal methods and supporting tools, the tools available to programmers for verifying assertions about program execution are complex and require knowledge and skills that most practicing  ...  Formal proofs remain difficult to construct, especially for anything but the simplest of programs. Merely constructing assertions to characterise program correctness is a difficult challenge.  ...  In spite advances in formal methods and supporting tools, the tools available to programmers for verifying assertions about program execution are complex and require knowledge and skills that most practicing  ...

1981 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
Other tools of the traditional tools cycle (translator, linker, loader) are applied automatically and are not visible to the programmer.  ...  The program is manipulated through a syntax-irected editor and its execution is controlled by a debugging facility, which is integrated with the editor.  ...  They would also like to thank the referees for their constructive comments which improved the presentation of this paper.  ...

Managing Complexity in Software Development with Formally Based Tools

Constance Heitmeyer
2004 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
In addition, the tools allow practitioners to focus on development tasks best performed by people-e.g., obtaining and validating requirements and constructing a high-quality requirements specification.  ...  This paper describes the different roles that formally based software tools can play in improving the correctness of software and software artifacts.  ...  In addition, an important aspect of developing a high assurance software system is discussed that is minimally dependent on tool support but is necessary for most tools to be effective.  ...
